AS IS


 

Missing her base
very new, white and clean


AS IS


Concoctions and lots of mess


Quite saturated and crusty 


Next morning stained and worn


Love how she aged
now to give her a stand or not and
how should she be dressed?

JEAL-ous (in a kind way, of course)!
I'll bet you find just the right base for her - or not :)

Did you toss her in the creek? I rather like her old and worn appearance. She should be adorned with jewels. Lots of necklaces hanging from her neck.

I can't wait to see what you come up with too! Hmmm I think you need to think how to do the unexpected. Have fun!

You sure know how to have a good time. :) I love the new look. I look forward to seeing what you do with it. Kit

Dear Z,
I cannot believe that she was only $40 .......... over here she would be at least £100. You have done a great job in giving her an aged appearance ...... I am looking forward to seeing what else you do with her !!!! XXXX

Jackie said...

Wow 40.00!! I have always wanted one, not sure how I would go about designing her look, love that she aged gracefully and so quickly!! haha! Have fun!

So that's what you were talking about. I think I was getting static when on the phone and didn't make you repeat it. You would never know she wasn't an old girl...great job.

You did a great job of aging her? Does she have a name?

Kathy said...

What a fun project! My Mona is sort of my alter ego and she wears those "artsy" things that brave girls wear but I am too chicken to wear outside the house for fear of looking silly.
Does she have a name?
BTW, I have been down with the flu and didn't have any of that cookie cream but found Payday candy bars to be a nice alternative - hehe!
