Dolly Day!!!

I have finished 8 dolls today.  4 large (about 10") and 4 small (about 6").  I will show you 7 of them-the 8th is for a swap with Lana Guerra (I made a doll of her!  She (the REAL Lana) is adorable!  I can't wait for her to see it.  We will be swapping at Artfest.  I will post pics of that doll after I get back because I want it to be a surprise.

First up:  Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE Tim Burton.  Since my dolls are so inspired by Mr. Burton, I felt I needed some Burtonish chairs for photographing them.  Here are the chairs.  They are made of wood and painted with acrylics.

Now for the dollies.  I wish you could see them in person.  Honestly, I am a terrible photographer!  I will begin with the little girls:





And now for the big girls:
