I made this piece for the ADO Mini Monthly Team Challenge, the theme was emotions. Dag nabbit if I wasn't determined to make a face that wasn't sad.
I'll be honest it wasn't easy. I had the mirror out and was pulling all kinds of faces. I kept my reference books handy and smooshed quite a few faces before she finally emerged.
Oh her emotion..bated excitement:)
The Prince was coming to Lillian's village in the Royal Parade and Lillian was so very excited. The last time he visited the outlying village she was just a child, but she had grown and developed and he was sure to notice her this time.

Amber is a full sculpted doll. A technique I haven't done in quite sometime. Funny, before I ventured into this crazy world of art dolls I considered myself a sculptor and every aspect of my work was sculpted. Making Amber made me feel a bit like the sculptor I view myself as.
Amber also is a hanging doll. I tried to make her look as though she was hanging from a meat hook..I think I almost got it. How ideal to hang an art doll. I don't know about y'all but I never have enough shelf space so a hanging doll is perfect in my book.

With Camille I've returned to making doll clothes again. It definitely takes longer but I really enjoy coming up with my own designs and oddly enough I find all those tiny stitches to be very relaxing and I love holding and working with the vintage fabrics and trims.
