“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Flowery Frida

Hope everyone has been doing great!
I've been busy
painting, gardening, trying to get healthy:)
(that's a whole other post)
I'm sorry I've been away so long.

I have a little project to share.
Let's turn Lulu into Frida Kahlo!

 paint a Lulu doll beige
 black for the hair
add  facial features (don't forget the uni-brow)
I painted her with an off the shoulder blouse
using plum & pink acrylic.
create the skirt part by hot gluing four flower petals folded over.
paint white glue over petals then add clear/snow glitter.
add any type of artificial flower to her arm for her to hold.
Her crown is created from the center of the flower
 which was painted pink and glittered.

The 6x6 canvas is one of my favorites,
it's so thick and compact.
cover the the canvas with a pretty scrapbook or tissue paper
using regular white glue.
attach the lace border last.
finish with a coat of clear acrylic spray.

Lulu doll
Acrylic paint in
beige, black, red, purple, pink, white
