Another Finish....

I finally finished The Princess and the Pea from the online class with Cindee Moyer.

I really dragged my feet with this one. I had to take her face "skin" off twice because the paint I was using bled into the fabric. I ended up using water colour pencils instead.

The Princess and The Pea




Her crown is only pinned on for the moment as I'm undecided about it. I may look around to see if I can find something more crown like:)

Question?...should I put something around her neck......a little bit of colour...maybe a ribbon.

I'm linking this post to The Needle & Thread Network...please go and visit:) 

Take care.

Yes, something. A little necklace with a pearl or teardrop gem. She really is sweet. Luv that bed!

She's beautiful Mary Ann and the color pencils worked nicely. I love her white nightgown and golden curls. I didn't even think about the neck needing anything until you mentioned it. I somewhat like her the way she is but just play around with what elle suggested and it may add.

She looks so cute and beautiful! I like how you finally made her face. Well, you might add some colorful lace on her night gown? Otherwise her attire seems to be complete.

She is beautiful...in fact, the whole thing is indeed like a fairytale!
However, I think that she doesn't need anything more to embellish..she is simply sweet as she is :-)

Oh, she's beautiful, Mary Ann! I wouldn't change a thing.

Enchanted Doll Maker said...

Mary Ann, she is just beautiful! I love how her face came out it is gorgeous. And her gown is so pretty. I wouldn't add anything to her neck, it might detract from the lace on her gown and her beautiful face. She is lovely!

Lorraine said...

Her face turned out beautifully. I think the idea of something around her neck is a good one.

Isobel Adams said...

She's beautiful. Really gorgeous! I personally like her neck unadorned but I think I'm in the minority. :-)

Mary Ann, she is beautiful and I think perfect as she is, your eyes are drawn to her beautiful face and eyes. Wonderful job as always, you go girl! Deb P.S. are you going to take Marla Niederer's 'Mistique' class? I was thinking of doing it as I'd learn so much but might need some moral support since I've never made an art doll before!

Dolores said...

I had to look for the crown. It blends in. Can you add beads to her crown to colour it up? I think she's fine as is but maybe something small around her neck wouldn't detract from her face. I love her bed.

She is just perfect! So sweet and dainty.

Shashi Nayagam said...

She is perfect and I would not change a thing. She looks that she could go to sleep any moment

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

She is gorgeous...I like the neck bare...it is elegant

Patti said...

Oh my goodness, she is beautiful! Worth the effort and I wouldn't change anything!

M-R Charbonneau said...

She's beautiful, Mary Ann! Wow! Love the bed too!

Sue McFadden said...

I think she is grand! Put her out of sight for a day or two. Then if you think she needs anything it will be evident.

Rhissanna said...

Her face is lovely with the water colour pencils, sweet and wistful. I love the mattresses in red and aqua; what exciting colours.

I quite like the purity of the white, but if I added anything, it would be around the hem of her night gown, rather than near that pretty face and crown. I think Sue's advice is excellent, about putting it away and coming back for a fresh look.

Annette Schultz said...

I just love the doll and her story I made a double set of quilts for a set of twins that my cuz had down under. Thanks for the tip about water color pencils I will have to get a set as I do plan on making a few more dolls.
take care

I am thinking it would be more difficult to sleep with a crown on ones head than a pea beneath the mattress! hahaha! Some time ago I used a piece of crochet lace painted to create a crown for a neighbour child perhaps that might work for you, and yes I like the idea of a ribbon around her neck, sort of a 'choker style' perhaps velvet...

BumbleVee said...

Hard to tell how large her head is...but I wonder if some jewellery making filigree pieces could be used to make her a little crown Mary Ann....

I like water colour pencils too.... they do what I expect them to do and only that .... which is perfect. Then, I spray the face with Krylon to keep them there....

Willow said...

She is lovely. What a fun theme Princess and the Pea.

Mrs A. said...

Well worth the wait. She is adorable. I think maybe a ribbon on her neck might be a bit fussy.
Hugs Mrs A.
