I just love Victorian fashion, so when I ran across this page out of The Delineator, I just had to come up with some way to use it and this is what I came up with. My intentions were to make it to stand beside some old books on the shelf, but somehow she found her way to the tree. I could do a whole tree in the Victorian ladies next year. I better get to work!

She is finished! After 3 days of embellishing I have had enough! I have a story to tell about her. She was at one time almost complete, but I did not like her face, so I took a knife and actually cut the head in half and started over sculpting a whole new face( One of the great things about paperclay!). It is hard to get a pretty face (with paperclay), but that can be a good thing if your trying for primitive or rustic look. I am going to have to set up a background and lighting so the pics will be better.Click on pic for larger view

I am changing blogs and changing my name! Why? I recently purchased a .com and had to come up with another name so my new blog is Sea Gypsy Studio. I am going to be moving posts from this blog over to Sea Gypsy. I will not be posting here any more, but I will leave this blog up for a while. So when you see Sea Gypsy on your comments, it's me!

I am still painting up a storm. It has been a very busy week. The problem I was having with my computer was a browser issue. I have broadband, but it was moving like a snail. Every time I would go to make a comment on someones site my computer would freeze up and I would have to shut down the whole thing. It was very frustrating, but everything seems to be working ok so far. I will go make a few comments and see how that works. It is so funny how the computer has become just as important as a phone. When I started doing this room, it was just going to be a room. But I have decided to make it a workspace. I struggle with trying to keep everything from running into my living space. This is a large area and I think if I am clever enough, maybe I can get everything in this one space. It has gone from a gypsy room to an artsy room. I painted the table last night an ugly gold color, but I think if I take that black curtain panel and make a skirt for it that might help tone down that ugly gold. Black has a way of grounding color. It tones things down a bit.

I was doing a little web surfing this morning and found this website called Polyvore. So much inspiration! I could spend the whole day looking at all the eye candy. I love this!
