Sarah had a "makeunder"

Good morning, 

Well by now I guess you realise that I LOVE dolls! Here is a different type of doll to what you would normally see here on Stuff by Sammi. Today, I would like to introduce you to Sarah :)

I am popping on today to share the results of my attempt at "making under" a doll. I really love the Tree Change Dolls :) When I first saw them I was in awe and I just love looking at the transformations ... of course I wanted to give it a go myself... so I did!

It took me a while to remove the face makeup ... and NEXT TIME I WILL WEAR GLOVES!
I originally painted Sarah's face with Acrylic paints... but I was not too happy with the result. I did take a picture...

so I took her face off again and this time I used ... can you guess?? yup, Copics!! :D
Here is a before and after shot of the doll with her make-under :)

What do you think?? In this case I think she looks a bit less scary! :D 

I'm not sure I will do anymore but who knows if I find some old worn out dolls somewhere I might give them more life :) meanwhile I might try making some better outfits for Sarah! 

Hope you have a wonderful day!

a little Art canvas


Well it's been A WHILE!! Hoping to get back into blogging...but that's a bit like a broken record isn't it... well we'll see!

Thought I'd pop on and share a canvas that I've been working on for a while... I THINK that I might actually be finished it now :) Started prepping a couple more today too.. so at least I might have something more to share soon.

I love this quote from Galatians which then goes on the say that because we are sons we are heirs!! It's so Amazing that Christ brings us into the family of God :D

another note about the blog.... I noticed that Izzy had started another blog post on here about the rest of our trip in France and the UK.. but I think she forgot to finish it (well in her defense - she does have a head full of stuffing)!

Off now to have dinner and go out to a card making Spread the Cheer night :D
