Here is one of the tiny art dolls I made for the "dotee doll" swap that is currently going on.  But when she was finished I thought she looked borderline creepy and wasn't sure if any of my swap partners would like it, so I decided to keep her.  She has since grown on me and I am glad I have her.  To me she looks like a sort of wise old lady, or maybe a ghost butterfly or maybe just a slightly eerie little doll having a strange hair day.. Wink





These little dolls are really fun to make and very addictive too!

I don't think she's scary at all.  You did a beautiful job on her!  I love the butterfly wings.

I think she's beautiful, and not really creepy at all.

All your dolls have been so lovely - I'm really glad to have you in the swap.  Smiley

Well, that just shows how much I know about "creepy", eh? Cheesy

The funny thing is, I really *want* to be able to make creepy-cute or creepy beautiful dolls, you know the ones that are kind of dark or strange looking but intriguing at the same time....

I hope hope hope I can do the additional dottee doll swaps because I'm determined to get the hang of it and reach my creepy doll making goal, as well as continue to build up my tribe of dolls from around the world. Cheesy

She's Beautiful, I'd be well impressed to make a doll come out looking like her.  As it is, my creations are always slightly funny-looking... hmm
