Craft Challenge 2011: This is for Melody!

30 Jun

Thank you so much to everyone to came to my Mad Tea Party! I’ll be posting Wonderland party tutorials soon, but before I do I have some unfinished business. From last month.

Remember my craft challenge project? Remember that May was for Melody? …Remember that May was over, um, a month ago?

Well, I made something for Melody!  And it’s thematically appropriate for the current run of posts!

Melody loves Alice in Wonderland, and collects different editions of the book as well as memorabilia–a few years ago I made her this doll, and last year I threw a Mad Tea Graduation Party for her–so naturally my first thought was to make something Alice for Melody.

So I painted an Alice kokeshi. I got the blank kokeshi doll from Temple7e on Etsy.

In one pocket Alice has a little bottle with a tag…

…and in the other she has a little slice of strawberry cake.
What do you think of her? I intentionally left her face blank…now I wonder if I should have given her features. What do you think?

    I think she’s adorable!

    And I have a question – is it tiring being so awesome all the time? :)

      Thanks! :)

      Maybe that’s why I’ve been so tired! (I knew there must be a reason other than not going to sleep).

    No, leave the face blank. If you put a face on her this will be the face everyone sees – if you leave it blank, she has her own face.
