The Traveling Blythe Project

There is this lovely project called the Traveling Blythe project.

The main gist of the project is-

First a blythe doll is customized.

Then she is hosted by many people through out the globe.

And we get to follow her on all her many adventures through the traveling blythe blog as well as flickr.

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a customizer for a traveling blythe this year.

It is a dream come true for as I have always wanted to make one since I discovered Blythe.

I already have a rough idea of how I want my traveling blythe to look.

Since she is a traveling blythe I wanted her theme to be something about travel.

She will be flying through the sky to her many destinations so I thought why not make blue sky and clouds inspiration.

She already has a name - Nimbus. Here is quick sketch I have already for her.

I can't wait to see her in real life all finished.
Sign-ups to host a traveling blythe are available. Please sign up here if interested!

It will be exciting!

Firefly Guardians

I worked on a new mixed media piece last week. I was inspired by illustrations of the 1950's. I am trying out a new style.

Here is the finished piece.

This piece is called "Firefly Guardians". A little Thumbelina is floating down the river on an adventure. She floats into Firefly territory. The Firefly guardians try to stop her from tresspassing. Will Thumbelina make it through safely?

This original painting is now listed in my shop.
