WIP Wednesday and Some Other Fun Stuff

on August 1, 2012

Well, today is Wednesday.  Halfway through the week.  I have a couple of works in progress, as everyone knows, for the Ravellenic games, but I want to wait to reveal the finish on Friday.  They are far enough in that showing them now would ruin the finish!

So, I made up a couple pictures of a quick little crafty project I worked on to share with you guys.  Now I know you all remember my haul from Hobby Lobby.  I told you I had some really fun things planned with that stuff.  I wasn’t able to wait until after Ravellenics like I planned.  I am one of those people who gets so excited I have to get started on it NOW!

I pulled out my supplies:

Got them set up on the kitchen table:

And began to paint!  I had drawn in pencil the outlines for her outfit so all that I needed to do was add the paint.  The acrylic paint dried quickly so I was able to get all four sides done pretty fast.  It was about 3 hours later (that includes all the drying time for paint and the clear coat) that I had this little beauty:

Sorry for the glare!  I will have to find some white sheets for my photo backdrop from now on!  She is a cutie pie, isn’t she!  She was immediately turned from a dancing girl into a gymnast as we were watching the women’s gymnastics on television at the time and Tutti was making her flip around.

I think she is definitely a gold medalist!

    I remember painting clothespins into dolls as a kid—these photos make me want to do it again, right this second! I love painting and never get to do it. Your doll is adorable and I love hearing about your daughter turning her into a gymnast immediately—the Olympics can be inspiring like that! 😉

  2. Thank you Kathleen! I look forward to seeing some of you dolls if you decide to pick up the paintbrushes!
