4th of July Petite Doll Challenge

Hi everyone,

I spent a lovely day with a new friend from my my journaling/bible study class.  We went to a local park to a "sketch in the park" hosted by the local arts council.  I've never sketched from nature before and one of the local artists in charge came up and said he liked my work!! Crazy, because I had no idea what I was doing...
but the weather was actually bearable today. In the 80's and low humidity for a change.  Just the way summer should be!  Then, we went to Joann's looking around, went to eat lunch, hung out at the bookstore and went to a matinee.
Anyway, Suzi Blu, my favorite art instructor in the UNIVERSE, said to make a July 4th doll for the weekend, so here she is.  You MUST go to check out her classes (here). Suzi has given me confidence to call myself an ARTIST!!! YAY

She is so beautiful!! You did a great job. I love the layers of shabiness you've incorporated into your background.

She IS beautiful! Such an interesting dress and very sweet face!
I am trying to read the blog post of everyone who is participating in this Suzi challenge- and it is very cool to read that so many people feel the way I do... we are all kindred spirits!
Keep having fun and keep up the great work!
