Okay -- I had so much fun creating for the sake of creating this week!!
On USTREAM last night I showed the "gals" a canvas I prepped that had a PaperClay figure if a woman dried and ready to go. I "decoupaged" papers on her (had the background already done.... and then ... cause I was going through a little bit of Anna Dabrowska withdrawl, I collaged her skirt in Anna's style. Here's a closeup of it:
And here is the USTREAM vid of me doing it.

After the cameras stopped recording, I started the body.
I used Flower Soft for the sweater - hate using that stuff but love the effect so I suffered through it. LOL. Added bits of lace to trim it - Perfect!! I was so happy how it came together!
Next came the face.
I am such a novice at faces but I am pretty happy how this turned out.
I molded the face with the clay before it dried so I had the shape of it predetermined for me (including a little sunken area for each eye creating a ridge for her nose.) That helped a lot.
Here's another view - you can sort of see the dimension
I loved the girl but didn't love the background - AT FIRST
Today I had a group in the studio playing and they can attest that the background changed multiple times. IN FACT... I added the bubble wrap and splatter effects AFTER they left today. I just couldn't let it go -- But I am MUCH happier now. :) Hehe
Here is what she looks like ... for now *wink*
I'm thinking I need to frame her a bit more -- I'll let you know what I do when I do it.
So - whatcha think of Barbie? hehe
Hope you have a creative day
