Miss Elspeth Darkly - Art Doll Cool-Aberration

Here's Miss Elspeth Darkly, all ready to journey on to visit Barb in NY.

Elspeth originated with Karma in SK, Canada. She's a private eye type trying to unravel the mystery of Fifi, the kidnapped poodle. She's at the masquerade ball now, where "all will be revealed".

I painted Elspeth's upper torso to match her facial skintone, and made her a polymer clay roller skates charm that dangles below her skirt, and a paper mache umbrella rifle.

Here're my journal pages continuing her story.

Elspeth's journal is kindof different and fun in that it's become like a mystery story that we each add a chapter to. Check out her whole story on the Art Doll Cool-Aberration blog.

Too cool,Gail! Love the atmosphere you've created on the journal pages and iridescent roller-skates?...how clever and funny too. I can't wait till she gets home.
