First Atticbabys© Doll for 2012


Paint? Artist's pencils? which to use? Why not both at the same time?
That is exactly what I did and like the effect it has created.
Playing around with different mediums.. my idea of fun!!! ;-)
She is now getting limbs attached.
I am selecting a few antique dresses and shoes
for her to choose from as well! (her idea of fun, LOL)
