This is the last piece I finished for a project I’ve been working on- a group photo which I will post tomorrow.
She has a funny, kind of smirky smile.
I considered redoing it but then decided I liked it and it gave her some feisty personality.
She has a dog covering her entire chest.
She has another animal on her arm but I’ve never been able to figure out exactly what animal it is- a badger maybe?
I will be putting all available pieces into my etsy shop this afternoon. I will update this when they are live.
This is the first time I’ve made a dark-skin tattooed lady. Getting things dyed to colors that work for skin tones is a real challenge.
I embroidered her hair design.
This outdoor photo shows the color in her pants the best. Pretty fancy!
She is the last one for now- #132 for 2016. I might make something after Christmas or I might just sit on the sofa a read for a week or so! Happy all the Holidays! I hope everyone gets a break and some time to relax.
And all three!
She is available in my etsy shop but today is the last day that I will be packing things up and shipping, before Christmas.
Still finishing up some pieces that I promised to make before the end of the year. Sometimes those promises are really only to myself but still…
My big show is over but I never finished posting all the dolls!
The show was fantastic- I finished up last night feeling excited and energized and it’s been a long while since that has been the case. Hurray! Also, the tattooed people did not sell so I have lots available if you are interested in getting one. I will be posting them on to etsy as soon as I can but I have such a backlog of work in all the rest of my life (hello laundry!) that it might be a few days. I thought I’d try something different. I am going to post groups to Instagram and people can message me through the various sites (instagram, facebook, twitter) or email me – email@example.com. It’ll be an experiment.
I’m running into the crazy time where the weather is not cooperating with my need to take photos before I pack everything up for the show this weekend. I’m running outside between raindrops.
I love this leafy mauve fabric that I found when I was out in LA last Spring. It seems so perfect for this old-fashioned tattooed lady.
