Matryoshka nesting doll 2

Ok, this is bad….now I have a new obsession!! These little Russian nesting dolls! I adore them!! I had a lot of fun doodling this doll up! I gave her a little fluffy shawl, and pockets. The face was a challenge. I didn’t want to have her have the same face as Rachel. It's a good thing I picked up another eraser while I was out cuz I did some erasing! Nothing seemed to look right. Finally settled on a google image search and spotted some features I thought I could pull off.


Mary- the matryoshka doll……She likes to make things with her hands, so she rarely wears gloves. She’d like to be able to brag that not only did she make her dress from hand-dyed fabric but she knitted her shawl too! But…..that’s only what she’d like to say. The truth is, it’s so much easier to just go out and buy what she likes wear!

And I’d like to put a Thanks out to Lori, for giving me the green light to just use my favorite colors on this. I really don’t have to take on my pink/purple challenge just yet, do I?

Mary is another cutie! As for colors, I say use the ones you like! Some days I'm in a bright color mood and other days I'm not. Challenges are good if something is holding you back but I don't think that's happening with your art! So just use those gorgeous reds and greens and I'll take care of the pinks and purples!

By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
