Sassy started out as a page from my crafting dictionary published in 1943. I usually like to try and line up the head of my people with a fun word on the page. That is how I have decided to name my people. I was a little tired when I started this girl, so I forgot to do that :(
Here is the outline of her body and the dress I made for her on some tracing paper (hence the light lines).
Here is Sassy all dressed up and ready to go.
I went back and added a purse to the original.
Once I have finished with most of the dressing and what not, I like to scan them and add text.
Then I print it out and add a few more touches.
Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't. The printed version isn't always as vibrant, so sometimes I repaint, or color the background.
I am still playing around with the best way to shrink them down so I can make prints, bookmarks, cards, etc from the original. If you have any tips on programs that work well (and are free) I would love to hear about them!
Thanks for stopping by :)
p.s.- Feel free to use my images as you would like. If you make money from them, great job! Let me know how so I can make some too :)
