I finally repaired all the "flaws". Had to lose the blue eyes since I was unable to make them look natural or even interesting, I softened the accent lines, colored the lips some more and ... Yes I applied the feared beeswax, yay success!

I really do appreciate all the supportive comments, I tried visiting all your blogs and say hi. However I was not able to access some of you and I want to thank you here: Julie Scott, Sandy, Melony, and CorazonArt (love the name).
Big thanks also to our dear Leah for her AEDM challenge. AEDM has allowed me to meet a fantastic group of very talented, kind and generous artists!

Here is my next girl. I know it looks a lot like my last one. I'll be taking a new portrait class soon and maybe I'll change my style a little. We'll see.
Also I have been making granny squares for the ''l'amour sans frontieres", an initiative to help an animal shelter in Paris.
Even my daughter has been creative. She was inspired in school to make this baby with a 2Lt bottle. The head is made with felt and a sock. For the pacifier she found a cabinet knob : )
I believe she improvised beautifully!

This is my accomplishment of the day. Really I'm blessed to be able to create everyday. The challenge is to take the time to take a picture and post it. I will try to post my work everyday for the Creative Every Day challenge. Thanks for looking.

Ta Daa ! The final steps are to give it the distress, aged look: inking, blotching, sanding, sometimes even scraping the wood, and then coating it with beeswax. Fun.
Thank you for visiting my blog : )
