Arianna (Ari) is FINISHED!

Please welcome Ari into the world! She is finally finished and ready to go home to her mommy, whom I will see next Thursday. I love doing home deliveries!

Ari has a light complexion full of subtle details. Even though the day was sunny yesterday when I took her pictures, she looks pale to me in the pictures. I am not sure I dig this "natural light thing!" I want my pictures to show the details and color of the doll. Someday I will figure this photography science out!

Notice Ari's painted hair in the mirror image~Painted hair really adds to the overall look of the head of hair. You cannot see it as well in pictures but I gave her textured hair as well with Genesis Matte Varnish applied before I painted her.

Ari also has textured eye brows created with the Genesis Matte Varnish too. I simply love this effect.
