The doll challenge

I know I mentioned before the doll challenge Gayle started at MQR. The only rules were that it was any interpretation or representation of the word "Fair" And that it was due August 1st. I also think I told you this is the first doll I've ever made.....keep that in mind please as you view the results....

Meet "Ms. Fairly Funky", the mermaid crack whore. Looks like she's had a pretty rough life. My son who was visiting this past week, is a cop and he dubbed her the mermaid crack whore....fits her looks pretty well I think!

I had fun doing this, and sure learned a lot! Like draw the eyes before needle sculpting the face, my eyes turned out too small for the face. Also need some practice with that needle sculpting!
But I'll make more dolls, if only to justify what I spent on how to books...LOL! Next one will be better...I hope!

I'll be working on my lessons for the online color and design for art quilters class I'm taking while I recover.

Have a good few days!

Email me!

  5. OMG....she's awesome!

    Hope all is well with you.

  6. For your first doll this is fabulous I wouldnt know where to start and would not be that brave. Ive nicknamed her cracker. I hope you soon feel better after your surgery and I cant wait to see the rest of your dolls.
