A bit of a departure from the normal goings on in my paper palace...this month the theme over at Alter It Monthly is "Dolls" so I went in search of a doll that I could alter. My own daughter is now almost 14 years of age, and we've kept some of her toys in storage (I say we, but it's really my DH who is the sentiMENTAL one in our family LOL) but she was never overly into dolls, she had a few Barbies but that's about it, so I made my way to a charity shop and bought a little Bratz doll.
The corset was made by my DD (thanks darling) while the skirt was made by yours truly out of tulle, old book pages, and some interfacing film. I was going to leave her with the very cropped hair, but then decided she needed some long locks...I think she's a very fitting ghost for my humble palace, what do you think? DD wants me to do another one, so I guess I'll have to go hunting for more dolls... As always, don't forget you can click on the photos for a larger view. I hope your weekend is good to you, and that you get a chance to play with your stash, or at least, have fun planning : )
