Doll Face

For my The Cat’s Pajamas Post scroll down or click here.  

Ok, hands up, who remembers the Barbie Beauty Centre?  You know the one with a Barbie head and shoulders where you can style her hair and do her makeup?  This fabulous new image from A Day for Daisies totally reminds me of it!  Isn’t she gorgeous?  All of the new designs this week are reminiscent of 1950’s Barbie faces (which was a little before my time :) but oh, so classy!  Here’s the link to Doll Face Five...on sale today too!  


I had so much fun colouring her,  I hope it shows.  I’m so happy with how it turned out.  She’s part of the new Doll Face Prints Kit (amazing).  I don’t get to colour people much and I have to say, this was such a treat!  

After colouring I put her on an embossed background (peacock feathers embossing folder) with some damask paper overtop, and a sentiment from Power Poppy (Sassy Succulents).  Along the bottom I added a strip of Scor Tape with Glitter burnished in.  It’s a little touch of glam.  



I gave her a jeweled necklace because it just seemed perfect for her, so glamorous!  



Here’s the Copics I used.  I’ll list what was for what because they’re all in a pile

Skin:  E0000, E00, E50, E95
Eyes and Makeup:  G40, G43, G46, G99, 100
Cheeks:  R00, R01, R02, 
Lips:  R12, R14, E95
Hair:  Y21, Y23, YR23, E31, E33, E35


Just for fun - here’s the Barbie Beauty Center that I had circa 1970’s.  I thought it was so fabulous!

She's so beautiful, Christine! Some of these girls remind me of the '50's Barbies. And I DO remember them!

Absolutely stunning Christine. The colouring is totally perfect and the layout so good right down to the little glitter strip. I would love to have your talent.
