G45 Secret Garden and The Artsy Soul

I took a class at The Artsy Soul in Manahawkin, NJ.  If you are in the area be sure to check out her store.  Colleen the owner is an awesome doll artist and a sweetheart.   I will be teaching there this summer.

Here is the first attempt at making my doll….lol  We used paper clay, it is awesome to work with!  I kept trying to make her lips looks kissable..tee hee

Her fairy ears, love them. (still looks like an alien, to me!)  Here she is all together and face on.

I went with Angela, be sure to check her blog:  Pages by the sea.
Ok, I’ve made you wait long enough, here is my complete girl using G45’s new collection Secret Garden:

So, here is how I started:

I sprayed it first with white dylusions to tone it down to make her bodice.

I pleated it and added the back and embellished the waist.
