The template was cut from mountboard. I painted on her dress with pink acrylic paint then once dry, rubber stamped over the top with an Anna Griffin background stamp. The pretty little corsage was bought already assembled.
For her neck and shoulders I painted on some of Ranger's Distress Crackle Paint (picket fence colour). Once it had done it's stuff and crackled I painted on some gold Perfect Pearls, then sealed it with some Matte Accents. The gold doesn't really show though and it does look as though the Goddess is suffering from some really dry skin! Well all I can say is, it seemed like a good idea at the time!
The face is moulded from air dried clay and coloured with a mixture of acrylic paints, chalks and watercolour pencils.
The thing I like best about this doll is her hair! It's 100% wool, so soft and has a lovely curl to it. It's from another scarf I bought in the sale in Primark - just £2 I think it was. As it was so lovely I had to go back and buy another one for me to wear! I also got one in dark brown, but I'll keep that one in with my craft supplies as it'll also make great hair!
There's not a lot to say really except that I love to craft but seem to spend any spare time either reading or browsing the internet about it! There's so much inspiration out there and so much I'd like to try! I originally set this blog up so I could join in with some challenges, but now also find myself addicted to blogging - so even less time to craft! I'm thankful that I have a very understanding husband who doesn't mind when I frequently disappear to my craft room!
