doll making was for this project.

I used powdered pastels

Help a fellow Artist!
I have a friend on
who makes amazing
(I have one of her fab Steampunk rings)
and paints really charming and quirky images.
Like this anxious
Balloon Twisting Porcupine.
Or the gently humorous

making cards from her paintings
and I thought I'd
give her a leg up

Go and visit, every little helps.
Share, if you can.
In doll news,
Mistress Melinda is coming along.
But I think she'd like me to hurry it up.
