Skye's Jewelry


Click Here for Doll

These are two necklaces that I drew ages ago. I found them a couple days ago, and so I decided to post them today.

They are black and white, so you can color them yourself. Enjoy!

Dinosaur


Until I really get back into the hand of things, this might be what my posts consist of. Drawings and doodles, and some odd ball things. Grrr, it makes me frustrated. I wish I could have more time to devote to this blog!!

So, I found a picture similar to this, and now I am unsure as to whether I traced this or drew it myself. I don't know anymore. But, one thing I like about it is how his spikes are soft at the top of his head, and then his tail spikes get sharp. ;D

Well, there is the one day late post. Hope you enjoyed it a little?

Finished the Drawing Week--Sleeping Girl in Bathtub


This is the last drawing for Drawing Week.
Umm... my notes on it are that it is a girl sleeping in a bathtub with lights around. It was done in watercolor, so that is why everything looks kinda funny and there isn't much detail. It's very stylized.

I apologize that this is not a paper doll outfit!

Murcury, the Fourth Faerie Girl







This is Murcury, the fourth Faerie Doll. 
She has a variety of clothes, but mostly dresses. 
I really put a lot of detail into the doll herself and her clothes. I wanted this doll to look awesome and daringly pretty. Did I succeed? 
What do you think of her? 

I am really excited to getting back to posting on the blog. I really let all of you down, and I hope this makes up for it. 
I have new dolls in the works, too. 

Well, I think that is it. The link for the rest of the dolls will take you to my new website,
 Blog of Paper Dolls II. All of the dolls that are here are on that site in a more orderly fashion. ahaha

New Look!

So, how does it look?

Is it nice? Easy to use? Is it more visually pleasing? What do you think about it? Did you notice it matches the weebly blog? Do you mind the name change? Do you think this will work? What are you thinking?

So, I got a new template. I changed some things around, and got rid of some things. I am really thinking about getting rid of the PDF page. I never ever update it. I am not sure if anyone uses it. I don't have time to update it. And most of the time I just never feel like it because it is so much work!

Do you use it? Do you like it? Do you think I should keep it? Do you, do you, do you?

Do you mind the new posting schedule? It is Thursdays and Saturdays.

What do you think? 

Here I Am

Hello, all!

So, I have missed about two months of posting. And I am sorry.

Reasons;
Extra work.
Not feeling well. (This is something I have no idea about. It comes in little spurts. A couple days feeling grumpy, tired, ect. and then it goes away for about three, four days and then comes back. It really is weird. Prayers appreciated!)
And just no artistic inspiration. (that is a biggie for me. No inspiration, no dolls or clothes!)


So. I have thought about the blog. I promise I am not quitting the blog. I am just going to revamp it. You all probably know that I am in the (very slow) process (again) of trying to make the blog more visually clean and user friendly.The first time was good. It was a good experience, it was a good idea. It just didn't work out like I it needed it too. So here we are starting over again.

That was put off when summer came. And then the whole blog was put off. And then drawing outfits and dolls was put off. And everything was put off!

So now...

I am coming back!

My plans:

  1. Get the blog more visually pleasing and user friendly. 
  2. Revamp the posting schedule so I can do it more effectively and without feeling rushed. 
  3. Work on more dolls and outfits.
  4. Narrow down to at least 3 main dolls of the site that always get new clothes.
  5. Work on the Weebly Blog and make it more efficient. 
  6. Keep everything up to date. 
  7. Do the things on this list.

What do you all think? Is it reasonable? Does it sound good? Do you have any feedback for me? Any more ideas? Questions? 

I would love to hear what you have to say on this.
