I've had so much fun using my newest pattern! Charlotte is made using the same pattern as ghost girl Sylvia and Victor the Vampire.
Can you tell I was watching Project Runway while costuming her? LOL!
Make it Work!

I didn't want to dress her all in black. She is a child after all, and children LOVE color!
She also loves pumpkin. Especially a potion gone wrong in potions class turned her skin green. Lesson learned. Stick to baking!


Her face is drawn on using Prismacolor pencils, and then details are painted on with acrylic paints. Prismacolors have more wax than most colored pencils and do a really good job on fabric.

Any excuse to make stripped stockings, and I'm taking it! She also wears a chatelaine clipped to her belt with all of her lucky charms. Including a frog.


And she wouldn't be complete without a familiar. Charlotte chose a spider, which perches on her shoulder. This is no little Miss Muffet here!


I always learn something new when I craft. What did I learn here? That I suck at photography and that Picnik photo editing is my new  friend. LOL! I spent so much time trying to get good pictures. *sigh*

Thanks for lookin'

Ooo, I really like Charlotte, especially all of the detail work. Smiley

I've become a big fan of Picnik too! It makes my lousy pictures much more presentable. Wink

Thanks Trouble T. I love making dolls for children, but there are so many more fun things that can be added when you don't have to worry about them pulling the stuff off and choking on it!

She looks great. I love every little detail. I think your pictures look great. I'm amazed that her face was hand drawn.

She is awesome, I love the painted face & that you drew it & all the details on her. I've been wanting to do a painted eye Poppet, so maybe soon I'll try it. Thanks for showing her & the inspiration to do it.  Roll Eyes

My advice would be to cut an extra face piece so that you have something to practice on. And use a freezer paper stencil when painting the eyes. It will help you get them the same shape and size and you'll have less bleeding of the paint. For this doll, I drew the face with regular #2 pencil which can be erased, and then colored it in with the Prismacolor pencil, and followed that with the paint.
