She had Headline Dreams, but not in this tabloid world.....

I am so amazingly excited to show you this doll today! I have shared the process of creating her with you along the way and it is just so exciting to have her in my hands completed! She is beautiful and came out even better than I could have imagined!!! I'm so excited!!!

She did take a rather significant turn as far as the final design stages go, however, so be prepared! Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce....

Beatrice!

Beatrice Torso


If you have been reading for awhile you know the basic structure is wire, surrounded by masking tape and then covered with a paper mache coating. I used watercolor paints to paint her red and then added a layer of Twinkling H2O watercolors to give her a shimmer! I love that shimmer! She has a delicate lace collar around her neck with a tiny pearl and a beautifully exaggerated buttoned bow around her waist. She does, after all, dream of making headlines and that simply cannot be done with the perfect statement accessories!

Beatrice' Fancy Shoes


She put on her fancy shoes for the photo shoot and everything! They are perfectly fabulous!

But, you see, there is one thing that is getting in the way of her headline dreams and simply pulling her deeper into the tabloid world. A world she wishes desperately to be free of.

Beatrice' Beautiful Face


People don't quite understand her beautiful face. I don't know why, as her cheeks are pink and lovely and her eyes are bright and ready to take on the world!

Beatrice' Upper Body


But...she won't give up. No, my dear friends, Beatrice is a fighter and she is strong and beautiful and she will make those headlines! She will be a star!!!!

Beatrice


She will find her wings and fly! After all, it is so BORING to be normal. Just say'n.

  9. I ADORE how she has such a story...it totally brings her to life.

    I've loved keeping up with the process (and am SO longing to try that flour and water paper mache!) and to see her completed? Scrumptious!

  11. She is darling!!! Jessie said she NEEDS to have her for her room. I asked her why. She said, "We are friends and friends stay in friend's rooms." LOL Not yet three... and her logic already sounds good to me!
