This is the result of two crazy afternoons in my art room experimenting with nylon stockings ha! I just cut some shapes out of pantyhose, hand sewed the sides, stuffed them with polyfill and then slathered them with gesso. I basically treated them like an art canvas, as if I were doing an art journal page. They were FUN to make!

Here's the link where I bought my doll skin.  Her prices are very reasonable. Have fun making your doll!

Thank you Sue for sharing that info :)  I'll keep an eye out for it and check Etsy too.... sounds like something fun to try. You've inspired me to go through my sock drawer as well lol!

Hi JoAnn, Thank you for the nice compliments. Doll skin is just a thin stretchy material you can use to make dolls. It's a great fabric if you can find it and what I love about it, is that you can get this cloth in all kinds of flesh tones.  I bought mine at Etsy but I still use nylon too. :)

Oh my goodness these are amazing!  I love all three of them :)   Very clever to use nylons that's something I would not have thought to use....may I ask what is doll skin?

Thanks for your comments Guada and Barb. I love to make these dolls and yes any stretchy fabric will do. If you have doll skin fabric it would probably be easier to cut than is nylon.

Those dolls are great!!! I'm going to make some, too!! Any stretchy fabric will work!!!

A warrior of a thousand battles. A thanksgiving letter for your warrior

Every time I think about this last two years in my life I tend to imagine
I´m a warrior of a thousand battles ♥

This is me about to star a spinning class with my team :)
Unbelievable don´t you think?
Before I started this path for a really healthy life everyone told me me how huge tha change would be and I wasn´t even close to that concept when i thought about it.

When people think on a healthy life style they tend to focus on losing weight and using the cloths you always wanted to...but believe me that´s just the top of the iceberg, the visible one.

I have new goals now, my life is not just about my art any more and it takes time to adjust myself to the changes.

I´m struggling in finding a balance between excersive (I want to make more and more every day), art and a healthy life (ccoking, etc). But I know sooner or later I´ll find that balance :)

The thing is it´s thanksgiving today and I have SO MUCH to be grateful for.

♥ I´m grateful for giving myself a second chance in life
♥ I´m grateful for new goals and because life keeps showing me how unlimited gifted we all are
♥ I´m grateful for YOU reading ME...because I know small acts can enlight a soul and make it shine so bright!
♥ I´m grateful for my family and friends
♥ I´m grateful for ART in all its forms


Just remember to shine your light

Ohhh and in case you´re new over here and don´t know what I´m talking about
this was me two years ago

...and this is me today

Believe me, it can be done one step at a time.

Love and light♥
