More about Emily ....

A few days I posted a very blue Emily as part of my homework in Suzi Blu's Les Petites Dolls online class, which I am having great fun doing.
Emily has progressed to having a dress and a layered background. The background is just watered down craft acrylic paint mixed with glaze medium and large amounts of kitchen towel and baby wipes, a couple of rubber stamps (a stamp with old writing and Rhonna Farrer Flourishes) and a stencil. I didn't have any stencil paint so I used Distress Inks for the flowers, which gives a lovely delicate feel, rather than the look of being actually painted.
Can't wait for the next lesson to see what you add next ....I'm even more proud of her now.
