Rosie the Riveter Lady : Cleaning the Basement

 OK..today I am Rosie the Riveter Lady...working on cleaning the Garage and going to the dump!! Rather be doing art..and Dolls...but...it will be nice to get my tools organized and know what I have!
I suppose this is going to be a week or two job as I haven't done it in a long long time..so that is why I had to get dressed for the job!

I have gotten the Doll bug again since spending time with Sheri DeBow this summer. Four wonderful days while she helped me make my own doll as I learned all about Polymer Clay. 
It has been a struggle to make my dolls look the way I want them too. It takes time to develop your own personal style. But it still is so fun I need to be easy with myself and just enjoy the process. I think that is the hardest part. I spent way late nights last weekend..sculpting sculpting....

 I thought it would be fun to make my own eyes and when I found this tutorial on Marina's Doll blog. Thank you Marina! Now I had the knowledge I needed to start the process. 
 I am still experimenting.
 I like how they came out..I included the commercial blue eye's in this photo.

But after baking the eyes with the resin over the top in the dolls head the colors and texture changes! So I am trying different paints and layers…

 I have been visiting a few blogs lately and realized it is so fun.
So I am going to come back and share more here again.



You can see on my facebook more photo's. Of course Facebook is easier but doesn't give you the time to stretch out and show to your bloggie friends what you are up to.
So this is what I did on Sunday! I was at the FaeireWorlds festival. Where my lovely husband John Doan played his wonderful Celtic Music.

I went into the thrift store early in the week to find dollie things and found a beautiful purple dress...It's back was down to my waist and I didn't like that. But after thinking about it... I went looking around and found a little top in Lavender and turned the dress back to front. With a sparkle belt I boutht in Paris at a used clothing shop..where all the model's seemed to hang out...and flowers from the house I was flying to Faeire Land! with a little help from wings from the Goodwill...smile..
