Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ Frankie Doll

Good Morning wonderful people, I hope you are well, it has been a while, home life is pretty busy right now but I certainly found a bit of time to make something for the next challenge on the Paperbabe stamps blog, today...

It's an anything goes and I went a little Halloween crazy and created my very own Frankie Doll lol!

So, I started off by spritzing the canvas background with some scrumptious dylusions spray inks, yum! 
I drew around my fabulous mini mixed media templates;
First the flick and fringe hair, I then mixed it up a bit and borrowed the fringe from the short and fringe templates, I love how easy it is to change.
Next was simply drawing the head and torso, I opted for the slim head shape, it's still my go to shape.

I painted the skin first, in a mix of green acrylics this could definitely be used for other spooky characters like a witch, zombie, I can't wait to get messy trying other multi coloured skin girlies!
I stamped her facial features using the mini doll face set, I opted for different coloured eyes(of course).

So, I painted gesso on some old old book pages, which I used to create the hand using the mini hand template and the same green paints as the skin. I also used this same paper for her stripy dress.
 The Best Version quote sentiment stamp, I thought very fitting, rotfl! I heat embossed in orange embossing powder on tissue paper but it didn't quite disappear on the black stripes, shame.

Then it was just a matter of adding all those special finishing touches, like her stitching, the needle and thread in her hand and of course the very important neck bolts for receiving extra energy!!!(think I could do with some)

Well, I thought I would enter my mixed media piece to these current challenges, I was so pleased to discover these, it took some searching out, it's great to see the mixed media creativity growing!
