It's challenge time at Smeared Ink http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/ our theme this week is
"Gothic Newborn". I have decided to alter a small rocking chair and baby doll. I first painted the chair with purple paint it was given 2 coats when dry I stamped a zombie head image from Smeared Ink's "Build a Zombie Set" onto tissue paper and glued one onto the back and front of the chair. The whole chair was then given a coat of pva. I undressed the baby doll and used a sanding block to remove any glue I then darkened the doll with a dark grey pro marker, given sepecial attention to around the eyes. I was going to make a new dress for her but decided to try to cover her pink dress with a black pro marker I think it came out ok and saved a lot of work. I then covered the original cusion with a black material and my Gothic Newborn was finished. When I have finished my dolls house she will take pride of place in there.
I am entering my Gothic Newborn in the following challenges:-
