I wanted to hurry and get today's doll done so that I could test out an idea.... Glasses. I saw a doll on Pinterest with glasses and I WANTED them! No clue where she got them sooooo...
I have been on a major quest in search of glasses for my girls. Yes, first I tried the obvious, just drawing them but I'm not so great at symestry anymore.... Heck, a straight line went out the door years ago....you'll notice there are no straight lines in any of my doodles. I digress... guess what, there is no such thing "out there" that you can buy... No dies, no stickers, no brads.... Until now :-). As always I had a "well der" moment... "You can make them yourself!" So I did:
This is what they look like after I cut them out.... white then I hand color as desired.
I cut them out of white vinyl so that I can color them with any color, lense and frame. The idea is to color each piece then layer the frame onto the lense (if you use one) then place it onto the doll before adding bangs.
If you would like some glasses that you can color yourself I will sell you 15 assorted pairs (including 15 frames/lenses) for $2.00 (FREE shipping). These are ALL WHITE vinyl (I used alcohol pens and permanent ink pens to color mine) and are about .8" (fit the popular DIE CUT dolls ... not the stamped dolls)...click the "Buy Now" button below:
I used the doll and dress from this set:
I got the pad of paper from Hobby Lobby this weekend for only $4 ... it was the 6x6 version, not this oblong one. I used the sheet of white polka dots on pink then put a black dot on every other fold of the dress to make it appear that I used two different papers.
And the Hair (I drew the bangs in myself) from this set:
All of the coloring was done with the Spectrum Noir pens.
