"Smile is the key"

2012-03-17T09:00:16.904-07:00

(image)

'Smile is the key' is my rendition of one of Maud Tousey Fangel's drawings. This sketch was done using a 2B pencil and a 05 pilot micro tip pen. I did not use any eraser while drawing this. I added the key locket, which is not present in the original drawing by Maud Fangel.

This is based on a photo taken by Virna Haffer whose art is exhibited in the Tacoma Art Museum. We went to the Tacoma Art Museum yesterday and viewed her work. I was inspired to make a sketch of one of her pieces .

We had to create dolls using the pegs shown below. These pegs could be used in the doll body construction or any props along with the dolls. The shapes of the pegs could not be altered.

Bellevue Doll Club Challenge Doll-Oct 2010

This month for our Doll Club challenge doll, we had to use the same body pattern and make it our own doll. It is amazing how different all the dolls look in appearance even after using the same body pattern. Everyone did a great job.

New Challenge doll~Brianna Grace

2010-10-21T21:36:02.690-07:00

I will be making Brianna Grace inspired by a very sweet girl named Arianna. I will try recreating the same clothing style as the little girl is wearing.

Below is Arianna Vohra's picture. The picture is copyrighted by Sumit Vohra of Admissions Nursery

(image)

Most of the materials needed to create the Brianna Grace doll has already been purchased and I will also be using stuff from my craft stash. The fabric for the lace arm warmer was difficult to find, but I just had to get the one that matched the closest even though it costed a little more.

Look-alike dolls~ "Ronnie and Anvesha"

2010-09-20T01:35:25.780-07:00

(image)


Anvesha and Ronnie dolls are my future projects. I have always wanted to make look-alike dolls and am so glad that I have finally found the perfect models that I had been looking for all these years. These two dolls will be my second and third attempts to create look-alike dolls. Just wish me luck that I succeed in doing so. The first look-alike doll I created was inspired by my friend's daughter, a very sweet child named Maya. Maya was created about 2 years ago.

I am looking forward to working on these two dolls soon. Ronnie is my son. He is my most precious and favorite doll. Anvesha is a very sweet friend and a real doll. I am so inspired by her sweet and innocent face. I will try to create the same clothing styles for the dolls as shown in the picture above.

Please check back soon for updates.

Bellevue Doll club

I went to the doll club meeting after missing it for the last couple of months. It was wonderful meeting old friends and making new ones too, while hubby looked after my most precious doll, our son, Ronnie.
At the meeting I met a very well known doll artist Rita Keizer and got a lot of goodies and great tips from her. It was so generous of her to share all those wonderful tips and also give us stuff from her craft stash.
The doll below was made by our group member Dianne Magnuson for the Gypsy Carnival Challenge which will be touring the Doll and Quilt Expo at Houston, Texas.

(image)

The doll below was made by Rita Keizer. It is a Queen Anne style doll.

(image)

The dolls in the picture below are all made by me. The fabric and all the goodies on the left were given to me by dollmaker, Rita Keizer.

It was such a treat coming back home from the doll club and seeing the table set for dinner. Thanks to my hubby for preparing the delicious chicken dinner.

Hoffman Challenge Doll 2009-Jahanara Begum is home

2010-10-14T14:47:26.444-07:00

(image)
Jahanara Begum arrived home today after traveling for more than a year. She toured various doll expos and had so many great adventures.

(image)

Jahanara Begum(Princess jahanara) was made for the Hoffman Challenge of 2009.
Jahanara Begum was the favorite daughter of Shah Jahan, Emperor of India from 1627 to 1658 and the builder of the famous Taj Mahal.
I chose to make an Indian doll for the 2009 Hoffman Challenge, since the challenge fabric 'Earth' had paisley motif on it. Paisley originated in India and spread to Scotland when the British soldiers brought home cashmere shawls.

'Twas The Night Before Christmas Challenge

2010-09-17T01:27:25.042-07:00

(image)

My group Rags to Riches Dolls is having its third group challenge of 2008. The theme of the challenge is 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.

Since the day we moved to our new place, I had not been getting the inspiration to create any new dolls. Well...not anymore. Our group challenge started on the 16th of this month. I got so inspired seeing all the amazing creations by my group members that all of a sudden I had this urge to create something. And then... I could hear the doll in the next room, that I had started making in my previous home. She was screaming at me to pick her up and start painting her shoes and sew her clothes.


Meet Hollie, a very sweet girl. She is ready to go to her grandma's house to celebrate Christmas Eve with her.

(image)

Hollie's face has been oil-painted. She has been inspired by a very dear child I know.

Roxy, my golden pup, kept following Hollie anywhere she went.
