off we go!

Hey everyone! Here I am, as promised, to show you my contribution to the traveling dolls I received from Leandra and Tracey-Anne.

As I wrote in my last post, I had in mind what I'd do with Lean's doll, but it seems like the doll had something in mind as well! I don't know if this happens to you, but sometimes I end up with a completely kind of doll from the one I originally had in mind. It's as if the doll has a mind of its own and directs my hand what to do!

Anyway, I was planning on giving a steampunk make over to Lean's doll, but I ended making a pirate wench with steampunk and burlesque elements. 

Here is a pic of the doll while deciding on the details:

And here's the finished doll:

I hope you like her, but most of all I hope Lean likes her!

Now let's move on to Tracey-Anne's dolls. Here is a pic of them as soon as I opened the box the day they arrived:

Lean did a fantastic job painting them so as to represent the sun and moon! I decided to enhance this particular look with brightly colored hair. 

Here they are with their new hairstyles:

Tracey-Ann, I hope you like them both!

The dolls are ready for their trip to the US. I can't wait to see what details Martha will add!

Thank you for visiting and don't forget to check back for more updates on the Traveling Doll Project!

Lean's doll is here!

Hurray! I'm so excited today because I received the first Traveling Project doll I'll be working on! It's a to-die-for cat lady made by Leandra.

Here she is resting in her box, waiting for her first make over.

I have in mind what her make over will include, but I won't reveal anything yet!

Stay tuned for progress pictures!
