This is my Blue colour doll that I made for my doll club exhibition. The main theme of the display dolls is rainbow colour dolls. All the members were asked to make a doll from one of the colours of the rainbow. I got the blue colour so here she is. Her body is all cloth, decoupaged and soft sculpted. Since blue colour is associated with many moods I did tried to combine all the shades of blue. Blue is for bright skies, deep oceans, deep deep shades of night embedded with bright stars. Blue also is associated with sadness. I hope all that can be seen in her. She holds a rose in her hand. It could be, it was given to her by a dear friend or she could be just thinking of someone and wears her heart on her sleeve. You maybe able to see the heart on her sleeve if you look carefully. But her face tells me she is thinking of a happy moment or dreaming of something nice. Well I leave it to you to decide. To me she looks like an opera singer:)

Made some tiny roses for the doll. I didn't want to make many but looks like I will have to make at least 10 of them. They are the tiny version of the ones that I found in Pinterest. You can see it in my craft tutorial board in Pinterest if you are interested. They are pretty cool. Since I have to make it tiny the petals are awfully fiddley to handle., but then I do tend to make things difficult for myself:)
Here is one of the flowers I made. In the photo you cannot see that they are tiny but tiny they are.

I was thinking of colouring the face of my blue doll in blue but thought that it will make her look rather dead. So I incorporated some warm colours into the colourings. At last she seems to be behaving herself but who knows for how long.
Thank you all for your various suggestions with regard the spot on the hand. I think I have a plan for that but thank you all once again for all the helpful suggestions.

During beach combing I found these treasures, well they are treasures for me although they don't look that great compared to shells from other parts of the world. There is always something exciting about finding your own shells for me? I may give a facelift to couple of these shells.

Oh dear I did it again. No pattern yet and no posts either. Sigh! Life does have a tendency to get in the way. However it intervened in a pleasant way. So I have been enjoying myself a bit. To give you a taste of what I have been upto here are some pictures. I might decide to paint those orchids but no promises this time. I also want to paint the window looking into the bright courtyard. The picture I took is not great with the phone camera but I have it vividly printed in my mind. It looked so enchanting from a dark interior. We shall see, as I am really not an accomplished painter at all but will give it a try at some point.
