I created this image following Nichole's "Birds with Words" tutorial. I'm such a fan of her work as it has such character and depth. Now, I've created my own "Birds with Words" image! Thanks Nichole for sharing your techniques with us!
In addition to creating this image, I finished the final sketch for "Garden Girl":
She is now ready for paint! Hopefully, I'll find some time to start the next stages this weekend. I've decided to call my painted girls "Georgee Girls". This was the name I used when made one of a kind Barbie Dolls for high end collectors. It was called Georgee Girl Designs. In the five years I did that as a living, I made over 300 dolls and sold them to collectors all over the world. Here is a picture of me 12 years ago with one of my dolls. 12 years ago! Hard to believe it was that long ago that I was a doll artist. I did keep all my patterns...Just in case. :)
