It's the usual stinking hot summer in Florida. Humidity at the highest peak, scorching sun, the occasional storm passing by.
I always loved summer but I have learned to look forward to the other seasons that allow for more outdoor activities without sweating or burning.
On a 92˚F day, the Ice Princess was born.
I had to work fast on her or she would melt through my hands.
Since I painted her mouth she's been complaining all day that it's too hot here so I hope I will relocate her sometime soon but for the moment she has to content with my AC on 80˚F and the ceiling fan on low. That's how I like it :-)
The ice princess is a sitter doll made with Paperclay. She is 13" tall and her arms can be posed in any way.
She has a pretty elaborate hairdo and a light tulle dress.
If she didn't complain that much, she'd be my favorite doll! ;-)
Do you also have doll pieces lying around your craft room? I bet you do...... well, I do have quite a few! Some are not weeks old.... and not even months old..... they are years old! I have been making dolls since nearly 3 years now and this "new" doll I show you today is one I started making over a year ago. For some reasons I didn't "click" with it and I left it around here for this long. So many other dolls took birth in between and the poor Princess was looking at me from the shelf, with her nice hairdo and no legs or hands. A bare trunk with a pretty face.
Finally her time came too...... first she went to the eye doctor who removed her old eyes and painted new ones and then the beautician fixed her make up.
She got hands and legs with a nice pair of shoes and the seamstress created this lovely pink dress for her, very Princess-like. :-)
The neglected Princess is finally a Happy Princess!
