Thanksgiving an Alien, and a Pretty Girl!

It is almost Thanksgiving here in the United States and I actually have my Christmas tree up already!! This year I wanted to get ahead of the usual craziness so I started everything a little bit earlier and what a difference it has made. I will be doing this every year from now on, it takes so much of the stress off of me and I get more time to create. I am up to date on my commission work so if you are on the list, no worries all orders will be filled and sent out before Christmas!

Here is a little peek at an Alien Girl commission I did over the past week-





















































And here is another pretty girl Cintia, she is also a part of the smaller size of artdolls I have started working in.























I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I will be listing Cintia in my Etsy shop this Wednesday!!

Time for another artdoll update!

Here is the next sculpted art doll that will be up in my ETSY shop tonight! She is the first of a new smaller size I am currently working in. This one of a kind art doll is approx.12.5 inches tall including her white wooden base. She is hand sculpted in paper clay over wire armature and has a cloth body.

I made her a red head and covered her with the cutest freckles and soft blue eyes.
This little darling gave me the impression she wanted to feel like a princess so I gave her a crown of roses and I designed her dress in fine soft pink chiffon layers with sleeves that mimic flower petals and a rounded collar decorated with the tiniest pink pearls and a black satin neck tie. Her stockings are floral and she wears black ballet slippers. The dress was inspired by a few beautiful dresses I saw in the Spring 2017 runway shows;)

This is a one of a kind art doll and her outfit is not removable.

Please visit my etsy shop on the right sidebar for more artwork.


























Thank you so much for visiting my site!

Happy, it just snuck up on me, November!

Hi friends, happy November! I know! can you believe it's already here, I just got used to writing 2016. That means there's only 2 months until 2017, and only 8 more Sundays and it's CHRISTMAS!! I love this time of year, everything seems to get a little hurried around here. I love to see the changes in the colors, the touches of pinks, coppers, lavender and mustard yellow, in South Florida we see the changes in the sunsets, the foods, the flowers that bloom and our wardrobe colors;)
This month is when I feel like I have to play catch up with my annual TO DO list so it looks like its time to get my butt in gear;)

Last month I was really busy with health stuff and family. I'm happy that I was still able to teach a class and start on 5 little dolls that I will be posting here next week, they are a new smaller size for those of you that don't have the space for a bigger doll. I have taken all of the commissions that I can handle and will continue to work on those until early January.

This weekend I will be listing my last 2 Fairy babies for the year, a pink and a blue, in my ETSY shop. They are ready to go and will make a great gift for anyone!
In the next 2 months I will be listing a doll every 2 weeks, so visit me for that and I will be making some cute and simple Christmas decorations that might inspire some of you to try some DIY of your own!!






















Have a great weekend!

Tracking Hurricane Matthew!! Getting READY!!



Yes, were tracking Hurricane Matthew here in Miami:(
Getting our gear together, I hope and pray it doesn't hit us with any force. Hurricane Andrew was a nightmare I never want to go through again, so fingers crossed it weakens ASAP! Our prayers are with everyone in its path. 
PLEASE NOTE::If you have ordered something from me please give me a few extra days to see where we are as far as electricity, damage, flooding etc.

It's almost over, September! and my class starts soon!!


First off--I apologize for not being as active here as I want to be, I'm having issues for quite a while now with blogger and am thinking of switching to something a little easier to update and maintain.
I do have an Instagram account that I post to every week and I am on facebook quite a bit as well.
So if you are on any of those, you can follow me and see more behind the scenes and projects Im currently working on. Enough of that;)
Well another season just started everywhere, except here:) it's officially Fall or Autumn if you prefer but here in Miami it is still 95 degrees with 100% humidity all of the time. I still like to pretend there's a season here so I start by switching the pillows on the sofa to more natural colors instead of my super bright summer palette and I lower the AC at night to 65 and drink hot tea, that's Fall, Y'all!
Luckily, I am traveling until the end of the month on business so I will be outta this sticky heat for a little bit!! But I will be back in time to start my doll class!!

"It's My Party" doll class will begin OCTOBER 1st at AforArtistic once again, so I hope you can join me! Just click the blue link to go sig up for the class!

I added 3 new Little Monsters on my Etsy shop this week. I have Gus the Ghost, 
Baby Bat, and Little Pumpkin Head. They are small and adorable and will arrive in the cutest little coffin or crate and they make a great gift for yourself or anyone who loves spooky creepy cute stuff!! 





I hope you like them!!
Have a great week!

New Project!

Hi everyone, a big WELCOME and THANK YOU to all of my new students for joining me for the next 3 weeks in our Flapper class! Well, summer is almost here and I have started work on a small new project. This one will be geared towards the little ones but I hope adults will love it too! I am working on some scenes or vignettes for the new project and will be sharing some of the process photos as I go along.
I love paper mache and especially mushrooms so this was a fun way to get to work on both at once.
These are just very basic hand made foil, wire and paper tape mushrooms then painted in acrylic colors. I am making the grass from decorative materials I found and some of the flowers will be paper crepe. So here is the start of it all.
















































Tons to go before I can get it the way I want it but its a start. Well, I hope you all have a great weekend, have some fun and create something that will make you or someone else smile!!

Hugs,
Rosanna
