I decided to name my new fabric face doll – Trixi. I don’t know why. I just thought that sounded like a cute pert little name. I also decided to add a neck and shoulders for a top to her head and hat last night. I will need to repaint her face because adding the neck left it all a little streaky. The eyelash yarn and fabric that is forming her hat is turquoise and blue with a little purple in the yarn. I haven’t drawn in her face yet, but I did work on the eye shape today at work. I sound the spiral that I want to use for her cheeks. I like to do a spiral shape for my faces. The next thing I need to work on is nose and lips. I like to make heart shaped lips and little noses. Everything of course is cartoonish…no reality here. Tonight I will go home and outline the dress for Trixi with the eyelash yarn and add the material for her dress.
I also made the balloons for my other face doll. The first one that I started. I need to name her as well. I will have to ponder on that one.
I didn’t start on any paintings last night. I think that I will work on finishing my fabric art projects before I start on anymore paintings. But, if the spirit moves me, I will grab that paint and brush and create away.
