TULLE GIRLS

I've been experimenting with my girls. This, so far, is my favorite. It isn't photographing as pretty as it is in person. I ran out of the aqua tulle, which is why the top of the skirt is white. I actually love it like this. This is the smallest one I've made. She is about half the size of the original pink one I made back in June.
I used the other vintage button from my grandmother on her body. For this one, I just painted the mannequin white before using aqua glitter.
Black beauty
Giant pearls, pink/white paper and a mix of black and silver glitter cover her body.
This green, in person, is much brighter.
I used a green and white toile to cover her body and then a green glitter and hot pink pearls. Again, she is more beautiful in person.
It is hard to see, but this tulle has silver already in it. This one was a little hard to work with, tough not as bad as the organza was. I did have to use band-aids to protect my fingers, but they didn't bleed this time.
Silver glitter and large 'diamonds' complete this girl.

I have gotten the construction down to about 4 hours from the 10-12 the first one took me. These are smaller, which also helps. They still use about 150 yards of tulle though.

I have been advised, by Ed and Jose, that I need to sell these dolls. If I can part with them, they may be going on the auction block soon!

Oh Tamerie, I love them all! But the first one is my favorite...yes, you should most definitely sell those, if you can bear to part with them... I would not be able to! But I would love to own one! Thanks for sharing your ghost story with me today as well... most people who tell me their stories say they are not afraid either... I would love to hear more when you read your journal again... Bisous... Julie Marie

Hi Tamerie...they are all so lovely! I can see quite a bit of time and love went into creating each one!
Guess what? I will be coming to San Diego to visit with my sister Jolee and neice Candace on the weekend of the 23rd of this month. I will also be bringing some of my 'Bling' while I attend the "Vintage Vixen Vendor Sale". I can't wait! Will you be there? I know that Deb will be there and I can't wait to meet her in person!!! I would love to see you also!
Until then...
Have a wonderful day!

Debby
