Oriana and Ariel are finished

We had our doll club meeting on Wednesday, and I took Oriana and Ariel for the two colour challenge. I’ve never won a challenge before, but I finally did this time. It was such a great feeling to know that what you work so hard to create is admired enough to have people vote for you… The prize was fun, a crafters tote full of all kinds of goodies including a package of embroidery floss. Hopefully some of the ones I need for a project I want to do in the near future….Here are the girls. I had so  much fun with the theme. Oriana is dancing while Ariel is sitting with her eyes closed just listening to the music and wishing that her turn to dance will come soon.

Some details. The shoes are painted on, finished with sparkle glue, beads and the ceramic roses I found at Michaels.

More ceramic roses at Oriana’s waist, along with beading on the edges of her shorts.

The trims on both girls shoulders and wrists are made with ribbon that I ruched. Beaded embellishments as in the head pieces on both, and the backside of Ariel and on the base, were found on ebay. Knowing when to stop is always the challenge. To much is gaudy, to little never shows off the doll well enough, so you just have to figure out the place at which you say, enough….no more.

The box Ariel is sitting on, is just a little paper mache box covered with black and white dupioni silk, The cushion is made from the black minky and just a little trim to finish it.

So must go now and let Ariel finish dreaming of things to come.
