"Allysin Wunderland & the Power of Suggestion"

Here is my little "Allysin" almost finished!
I thought I would put some of the process up for my fellow artists to check out.

I still need to get a better bottle so I can paint the little "Drink Me" on the glass
She stands drying in my little front Garden.

I will still add polka dots to her socks
and paint the base.There are a few more accessories
for her but that can be a surprise for the finished work.
Don't you love to watch your work emerge?

She has been so much fun to work on!
She is just a hair over three feet tall.And my one year old thinks he needs to kiss her.
It is so cute except for the sticky fingers that I have to keep attacking
with baby wipes to keep him from leaving his mark on her!

I swear it's almost as fun as watching your baby grow...well not that fun,
but it is definitely a labor of love!


  1. oh my goodness! this is probably my fave of yours so far! I looked at the face close up, and you do such an amazing, detailed look!
    Do you buy the hair already in a wig form?
    She is a big doll too, no wonder your one year old wants to kiss her :-)

  2. Oh my gosh, she is fabulous! I love her little nose and lips-pretty, pretty!
    I'm excited about the doll tag swap too. I've got about half finished, but some of them are I don't know, may have to do more :]

  3. Wow! She is amazing. She is so lifelike and adorable. Such detail! Thanks for stopping by my blog. : ) Julie
    p.s. Your children are all gorgeous!

  4. Ahh, thank you for the tip on getting the curl out! Did you make your own tags or does some place like Michael's sell them in different sizes already made?

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a wonderful post. I finally have had time to visit other wonderful artists and I'm so glad I came to visit your. What an amazing doll. I just love her face...what expression. Wonderful! Shelley

  6. Oh my God she is perfect. Her lips look real. I'm not one anymore but at 52, I feel like kissing her.

    I am sending a great big kiss to you for what I was so lucky and thrilled to get in the mail.

    Can you be any more generous?

    I love it, I love it all. And there was a lot of all. How did I get so spoiled.

    You are amazing.

    Love Renee xoxoxo

    Thank you.
