New Doll on the Block - Meet Bloomers!

Here's to Bloomer's saying Happy Valentine's Day ya'll!

Bloomer's is made out of mat board, and painted with arcylics, watercolors, markers and a white gel pen. She is embellished with her little heart brads and some gold foil tape. Her head is made out of air dry clay and adorned with bright orange boa. Origionally this head was to be on a button fairy but....

She is flat backed and will hang on the wall or be put in a book, shrine or whatever. Her skirt is made out of celophane and drawn on design with a gel pen. Note if you try this you must spray krylon or something to seal the gel pen as it really will not dry and stay otherwise. Her heart got a coat of crystal 3D laquer to make it stand out and be shinny. She also has (underware lace) for sleeves.

I have not decided if she should wear a crown, or if she should get her wings as of yet.
and here is a close up of her face.
