Prairie Doll in the making

Prairie doll in the making..I LOVE Prairie dolls
as I create them in my minds eye I do step back in time..When the west was wild and and not
crowed when times were hard yet so simple.These dolls represent those times..Created along the wagon wheels and very uncomfortable long rides across our great land.. Mothers gather what ever was at hand to create a life time friend for their daughters.
there is no rhyme nor reason for creating this doll .NO dead line to meet..Just the best and funnest side of doll making,,Just the want to! Sitting down with pencil and paper and start sketching out whats in my heart...
This doll for some reason has been wanting to come to life through my heart and fingers..
I wanted to show and share her going through her growth steps..
Practing Practing on creating softer faces yet not loosing the yesteryear effect..
I used water color pencils for her facial features and blush for her cheecks so far..I now will
rub her down achieving even more of a softer face and making her look vintage.

Hi Sherrie,
I love your doll so far and if I'm not mistaken, she already looks like she has had enough of the bumpy ride in the wagon for the day! ... look forward to the finish!

Hi Pam! Thanks so much for your comment..I have to agree with you the more I look at her.I decided to attach her legs n arms and then dress her that will make a difference.
She isn't perfect I see I have one eye larger than the other *ugh*
Pam your blog and DOLLs are just awesome!!
