I know of two doll swaps that will be happening soon. Smmarrt's Art Doll swap and the Silly Girl Swap coming next month based on Missy Ballance's pattern. I'm looking forward to both and, this weekend, I had the idea to do a mashup of these two dolls.
Here is my Silly Art Girl:


I LOVED LOVED making her. Here is a closeup of her face:


And here she is with her sisters--from left to right--in the order that they were made--you can sort of see an evolution here Wink

Great transformation from cutesy to artsy, Susan!  Now I'm looking forward to the Silly Girl doll swap even more--it's great to see so many different possibilities (but it's not fair that you are getting so much practice!!  I need to get busy!)

Anyway, such cute dolls the silly girls and that art doll is awesome! Whomever will be partnered with you, will be so lucky  Cheesy

I love the idea of mashing two fun ideas together. Now if I can squeeze this in between birds, prayer flags and altered puzzle pieces, I will try one this week while sorting my fabric.

Isn't that what Craftster is all about??? And yes, you do feel like family, though I'm not sure if you would want me as a family member, what was that phrase again... ehh, I'm not weird, I am limited edition  Wink  Grin

smmarrt (and all!) please try one. im going to be trying another--like tonite. one a little brighter but no less wild!
If I can somehow find some spare time before my holiday, I will! Oh, please make some more another one and share your girls with us!! Love to see more with your signature  Cheesy
