As I teased last night, I decided to not only list a new doll for sale today on my Etsy shop, but also a brand new product idea that I had been debating tackling and was QUITE happy with the final outcome. I had dabbled around with decoupage in the past, but hadnt really thought about doing it for the purchase of creating something to sell. Then I was out wandering around my local craft store and found some materials that had, indeed, inspired me. So without further ado I present to you, my adoring public, my new doll offering as well as my new product line that I will hopefully be doing more of as well as a means to expand Chrysalis Creation. 🙂 Both are for sale now in my Etsy store and dont forget to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!
The doll was a Monster High Abbey Bomidable doll that was of course repainted with watercolor pencils and soft chalk pastels, and sealed with Mr. Super Clear UV Matte Sealant (multiple times – from start to finish!) as well as Liquitex Gloss Varnish on her lips and eyes (which was added after photos were taken!) Her hair was washed, conditioned and then restyled in something influenced by the 80s. (I was channeling JEM and the Holograms!) then her nails were pained in “Lacey Lilac” from Sally Hansen and topped with Seche Vite topcoat.
The Victorian inspired Decoupage Floral Arrangement centerpiece was made by covering an old wine bottle with two different types of textured craft paper in shades of beige, and decorating it with pink printed Washi tape, two different sized pearl cabochons – (which were hand laid individually!), lace appliques and victorian styled die cuts in whimsical sorts of designs with butterlies and three dimensional white roses. The floral arranagement is faux Ranunculus and faux White Amaranth branches.
