I'm on the cameron side of sanford. I'm not sure where you are but it couldn't be too far. I do a little bit of everything myself. I have a severe case of crafting ADD, though not much lately with my dad in the hospital. I'd love to figure out how far away you are. My socializing is limited at the moment due to funds and my shifts as Dad's nurse, but maybe when things get cleared up we can plan some kind of crafty adventure.

I used a small cocktail of acrylic paints and sealed her temporarily with mod podge. (It's all that's on hand.) I used Misty White, Licorice Black, Engine Red, Parakeet Green, and Light Cinnamon Brown.



And thank you to all above comments. Smiley She was a blast to work on.

I really wish I had taken a before picture. I'll keep searching for one.

Some back story on the doll. One of my mother's co-workers bought it for me as a gag gift one Christmas because she thought the depressed look on the doll's face reminded her of me. I didn't think it was as funny as she did. The doll stayed in storage for a while until last night when I discovered it while sorting through boxes. I debated what to do with it, since I always feel bad just throwing away gifts, even if I hate them, so I thought I'd ... hack off her leg. Then I had inspiration! Zombie!

Okay, maybe it's a little bit of a sick and twisted path, but it worked.

I present Zombiedoll! Who sort of reminds me of Hayley Mills. I'm still working on clothes. And... better pictures. As usual, my camera batteries died mid-photo shoot.

Headshot.

I thought she'd make a nice ballerina. Costume still in progress.

Oh look, you dropped something there.


I just realized that some of these are sideways. I'll try to fix them... after I sleep.

I may just borrow your idea. Smiley I love your red ribbon, but I am sadly lacking that color. I'm sure I'll come up with something.

I adore your bows. Smiley I especially love the tiny bow necklace and your "ridiculous" earrings.

I'm pretty sure this is being posted in the right place, but if not please move it. I haven't posted anything here in the longest time.

Actually, I'm a little nervous too. Excuse my ramblings. ^^;

It all started when I was playing around for the first time with this Sculpey that I've had for oh... two years or so. (I'm a little slow on the uptake.) I started making little skulls out of it and I had an epiphany- I also have this super cute fabric with skulls on it! After tumbling the combo around in my head, I thought that I had a headband that needed to be recovered, so that was a perfect place to start, and here is what I ended up with.

(I apologize in advance for crummy webcam photos, I seem to have misplaced the cable for my digital.)

Here it is being modeled by my lovely assitant.


A top down(ish) view.


And closer up of the bow.


The digital was acting up, but I found the cable. In these you can see the pretty dark green of the fabric.

I live about 45 minutes from Fayettehell in Cameron, but I go there pretty frequently so I would love to meet other crafty people.

I sort of have crafting ADD. I try a little bit of everything. Until I get bored and go onto something else.

And I'm totally absorbing like a sponge all of the crafty locations I can.

Great minds think alike. Cheesy

I'm totally going to post pictures... whenever I manage to finish my bag. Such a lazy bum I am.

Well I'm not sure about Ericas Fabulous, but I got mine from Wal*Mart. Not from the fabric section or anything, but... well, there were a bunch of cute pink skully bandanas, so I figured I'd buy enough of them and have all the fabric I'd ever need for a bag.  Tongue

I totally have that pink skull fabric and am using it for the lining in a bag that I've been long overdue in making for a friend.  Roll Eyes I love what you've done with it.

Actually, I have similar fabric of the outside of the brown one too that's going for the outside of said bag, only mine is black. Wow, that's crazy.

I think they're both fabulous. Certainly, definitely, absolutely.
