Celesteena the Puzzle Doll
I finished the puzzle doll Celesteena that I was beading for a challenge on Beaded Art Dolls. She is quite sparkly with all the Swarovski's I added. I originally had a different face made but while I was adding a sealer to it, I ruined it so I needed to make another one. This one got some hearts added to it since I knew I wanted to do a heart for the main body of her. I'm quite happy with how she turned out. I was going to bead the back in reverse colors using blue with yellow as the accent, but I really like her just like this. I made a hanger for her as she is flat (with a bit of dimension) and will really look good on the wall of my art studio. This was a challenge to do something in yellow, which is not one of my favorite colors, but since I've worked on her, I have grown quite fond of that color and I will probably use it in my work much more than I have. It's a wonderful thing to do a challenge and learn to love things in a new way. Now, I'm off to do more on that beaded mask. I am getting closer to the end of that too. I hope to finish it before we go off to Maui next week. But then again, I do have until the end of May before it is due.
