Customized Officer Pullip Doll

Howdy Everyone!  I'm so excited to show you my newest customized Pullip Doll.  She is made from the Make It your Own Tan Pullip kit.  Kits are available  at Pullip style or JPGroove.  I purchased her wig at JPGroove
Her officer uniform is from Mike, the owner of Pullipstyle.   My first couple of orders were rather large and he sent me three Pullip outfits as a gift.  Thank You so Much Mike!!!   Using a ready made outfit sure made making this doll really easy.
I used Pan Pastels and Prisma colored pencils for her make up.  Her eye chips are done with Fantasy Prisme Paints.  Her eye lids are done with acrylic metallic paints.
Her wig was so easy to apply and it is just beautiful. 
Officer Pullip is so happy that you stopped by and so am I!!  Have a Happy Crafting Weekend!

BoHo Pullip Doll

Howdy all!   Let me introduce to you Louisa!   She is my newest custom Pullip doll.   I confess that the process of making her clothing took me  awhile.  My mojo was in super slow gear. And..... I ending up hand sewing all of the lace  onto the dress.  
The long ruffled over skirt is removable.   I had a dream of her headpiece,  so as soon as I awoke this morning I braided three pieces of lace together and formed a ring.   I left the dangles and cut each into two pieces.  Next applied three different kinds of flowers, bows and beads.
I am so happy with my finished Louisa.   She is so  beautiful.   
The shoes were a bright pink and I painted them with a spray prima and paint mixture.  After they were dry I applied the beads and pearls.  I colored the pearls with my Copic marker.
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you are inspired to Craft something!
God Bless and Happy Crafting!!
And I must show you her dress by itself and another use for the over skirt
Over skirt used as a cape!

DecoFunBowMaker Bows

Howdy everyone!   I just wanted to share with you my latest tutorial of the Deco Fun Bow Maker kit that I purchased.  This tutorial will show you the contents of the kit and two bows that  I made.  Not to bad for first time use. 
This bow is fabulous.  Notice the added dangles that I added to create this beauty.  And now another attempt using this DecoFun Bow Maker.  My niece is getting married this Saturday and her wedding and reception is on a farm at the barn.  This seems to be very popular in our area where these farmers are transforming their barns into Reception Halls for beautiful indoor/outdoor weddings.
I added trims, ribbons pearls to compliment this gorgeous bow.
The center flower is from Hobby Lobby!    Hope you are inspired to make a bow!!! Happy Crafting!!
