Mini Challenge

I believe that there is nothing that you cannot get inspiration from. Look at this picture. It was just a piece of string that was lying on the floor and as soon as I looked at it I thought to my self I see a face in that string. Do you see it too?  If you do then you are free to down load it and make a doll head out of the image. How is that for a freebie :) I think I am going to try it just to see what comes out of it. Go on you all can give it a go too. The worst comes to worst it will end up in your bone yard or you may surprise yourself by making the most wonderful doll out of it. you are free to enlarge it as much as you like. The only thing I ask is don't try and change the shape of the front of the head as the challenge is about the face as it is. You will need to draw the back of the head but that is ok.
Actually I got an idea. I will make it into a challenge. There will be prizes for the best 3 doll heads. I will not judge it but will ask some wonderful doll makers to choose their choice of head.  Are you all game for it? Do let me know by leaving a comment.
Please send a photo of your finished heads to me. I will then put them up for judging.

PS - You have till the 4 th of May so plenty of time to get it done

  2. Michele this image will make a 3D head. If you need any help do let me know. I will try and help.
