Story Book Character Challenge Presenting "The Queen of Hearts" aka Alien Child


Well she is finally finished and this is my Alien child and was a real challenge for me as her face was not going to match who I had in mind so she ended up being the "The Queen" of Hearts, that is. I lean more to sweet, pretty and cute with a vintage style but rather than quit I went with it and gave it my best shot. I can see I am much better in creatively dressing and hairstyling than painting so I put my imagination to work. This was a fun challenge but next time I'm just going to make something I like and not limit myself to a class challenge. She became like homework until I started dressing her then it was fun. lol Now this week I'm off to have some fun and I'm in a mini altered book swap and want to get busy on that which I already  know I will love and can't wait to start. See ya all soon when the next project is in.
Doin' The Happy Dance!

She turned out super!.. especially so, for a first ever doll! I agree, I wouldn't call her an alien child as it makes her sound less than she is. Love the heart cape and pockebook too! Good job!

dear Marilou, I don't make dolls (at least yet!) but must say I love her little queen of hearts bag : )) Thanks for the comment today on my art journal. I found it too difficult to do all the work of a page spread in one day, so I started breaking it up over 2 or 3 days. This approach has worked well for me! hugs, lenna

Hello Marilou, I just love your darling doll, Queen of Hearts. I collect hearts and when one of my granddaughters was a little girl she called me Queen of Hearts, she was into Alice in Wonderland.
This doll is simply adorable. I am your latest follower. Lovingly...Lu
