Gingerbread Ornaments

My latest creations are some new ornaments that I painted.
I have never done this style of painting before, but it looked
easy enough so I gave it a try.
They are not my designs...they are by a painter by the name of
Pamela House and she only does gingerbread boys and girls.
My favorite at Christmas.
The one below is by another woman by the name of
Kathy Jakopovich that I found on another website.
I ended up free handing them onto the wood because I didn't have any transfer paper.
So I didn't think they came out bad at all.
And the one below was suppose to be on a 12" wooden circle and I made
it work on an oval at a much smaller 3".

Hope you have enjoyed.
Be back soon...

A New Little Girl "Noel"

I have a new little girl to share with you tonight.
I thought "Noel" was a fitting name for her since we
are in the month of December.
She looks to me like she could be about 3 months old... 

I had taken a class on how to do painted hair from Professional Reborn Artist
 Amanda Hannon at Babies of Chysalis Meadows.
I learned so much form her and she was so sweet to work with.
I was thrilled with my first results and can't wait to do some more.

She has on a vintage style dress with a beautiful collar.
I decorated her pacifier to give her a sweet girly look.

I made her a fancy hair bow to give her a sweet look.

I also added the same embellishments to her little slippers
so everything tied in together.
As you can see below she managed to get one slipper off and is showing
off her sweet little chubby toes...

I hope you have enjoyed her photos.
Check back soon as I have some Holiday projects that I have been working on.
Have a great day!
