Hello and Happy Thursday!
For many, school has begun. My kids started the new school year on August 6th. Felt like a really short summer break, especially when I went to school- it didn't start until after Labor Day in September. heehee
I had started to customize the hair on this cutie from
http://www.littlemissmuffetstamps.com/ her name is Polka Dot Pals Lirienne - it's a rubber stamp and she's currently on sale! I also used clear stamp Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces and this set is on sale as well.
After I inked un my stamp, I carefully tried to remove some of the ink from the hair area.
I wanted the hair area to be light almost like "no-lines coloring," so I can customize and make it
into curly hair and I tried to not mess with the hair barrettes.
When I used the clear stamp Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces I didn't line up the eye holes like
normally because I wanted her to look like she was actually reading. I wanted her to look like she's looking down at the pages of her book. To do this you just line up the Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces of your choice slightly above the area you normally would. I then darkened the eyelashes and pupuls with a Black Copic Multiliner pen. (With permission) I customized and worked on squiggly and curly lines following Barbara Sproatmeyer's artist lines. So I tried not to change the hairstyle nor the flow of the hair- I did add some bits of fly-away hairs.
Here is the image before deciding on the color of the book.
Here it is all finished ready to give to my daughter.
