1 sweet little doll 2 cute looks
YUPP no joke! I've finally spread my wings and taking that fretful first step out of my nest
Drawing has always been my number one passion
but I've been quite frightened
not quite sure of myself.
But my numero uno goal this year was to show the world my artwork
and to build a little portfolio.
Abby is just the start...
I'm completing new drawing each week!
My real hope is to make a giant switch from being a "crafter" to an artist of sorts
I have embarked on something very exciting I feel
...started to travel a new path
I'm excited and giddy and so fantastically optimistic!
OH I do hope you will all come to love my style
and that you'll take this ride with me
that you will all say "I knew her when..."
hehe I am not trying to say I shall get a big head or that anything will come of this
I'm just really proud of myself I guess
I've never been quite so proud of myself before
I am embracing me!
about this first reveal
I made the paper dolls which I think are precious but perhaps not very practical
They look impossibly difficult to cut out...
so I wanted to offer another option... and perhaps another
what I was thinking was like a "finer" print
to go along...
but I'm not the most skilled gal on the computer
in fact I'm pretty much self taught
so I made the above little print of Abby's and Cadberry Bunny's Silhouette
Quite cute I think but what of the color pencil work?
hmmmmm back to the drawing board?
I like the very top top image of Abby in both of her outfits but I think it a bit strange to have the same doll and well I just could not take it any further at this point
So any suggestions? It would be so much appreciated!!!
I do hope you will share your thoughts! All of them!!!
The Good The Bad and the ugly (if appropriate)
oh and yes their will be more dolls!
As for sales
But My hope is to always sell in pairs.
So in my shop now is
Abby Paper Doll + Abby & Cadberry Bunny Silhouette + Free Shipping!
I spent the morning at the print shop going over every little detail...
in fact tomorrow I have to go back for some small little changes that needed to be made
but the colors ~ especially of my pencil work are perfect!!! Yeah
Who knew there was such a difference between RGB and CMYK!
AND oh oh oh
I'm GIVING AWAY one of these PRINT SETS to one of YOU!
Just comment on this post!
The winner will be announced Monday
which just happens to be MY BIRTHDAY!
OK so part 2 of this blog post is about Fashion!
I have been really super into Japanese and Chinese fashion as of late
Primarily the Harajuku, Decora & Kawaii, and Lollita Styles.
I am not well educated on these styles by any means...
It's a wonderful spectators sport really ~ I can't really imagine
dressing quite as outrageously as some of these girls and boys do
My pal Ashlee introduced me to the Lollita Fashion
I know their are different names it goes by in America
because of the icky thoughts people have about the word Lollita (Because of the book..)
but I don't recall it so do forgive me
I just LOVE this sweet baby doll style
it's oobber fun to dress this way
I think the shoes are actually the best part
ugggg if only it all wasn't so expensive!
Here I am in Lollita fashion being quite silly
The style I guess is actually quite rigid and strict
I was told my beaver hat would just not do!
Well how rude! I love my hat and thought it was perfect!
Ashlee has an amazing wardrobe
it's like heaven being in her closet
Had to show this picture because for the last couple of months
I have been dying to have light pink hair
My family thinks I am crazy!
But this girl looks adorable!
I've just got to try it at-least once
p.s. please click on the image to find the wonderful owner of these beautiful images :)
So i think this is what they would consider the Harajuku style or "Street fashion"
I did a little project dress up the other day that I think kind of embodies this colorful whimsical over the top fashion...
except not so over the top in my case
Oh my poor car...
It's had NO key for gosh almost a year...
I've got to fix him (Goose) up and sell him
and buy a manly truck to pull our new "old" trailer with
Not sure about these close ups? But I like them at the same time...
Just had to show this last pic
I just love it.
Not sure if it's the adorable girl, the pose, outfit or what?
But anywho... I do hope you all had a great great week and that your weekend doesn't rush buy too quickly!
Please leave a comment for your chance to win a print
