Sushi Dolls #16 - Aida

Hello, my friends!

I'm and in person! Well, as much as I can be online! lol
We enjoyed a wonderful little holiday, and I thank you all for your "happy holiday" wishes! I also want to thank you for stopping by and commenting on my scheduled posts! I so appreciate each of you! :o)

Today I have another new Sushi Doll to share with you. Her name is Aida, and she is from the August Fairytale release. Isn't she sweet? It looks to me like she's dressed in little flower petals, so I made her a little flower home! I cut the flowers out with my Cricut and did some inking. I curled the petals up a bit to add dimension. I then added a layer of cheesecloth to give some texture behind the image. I tied a doubled triple bow with seam binding and added it along with a few mini roses. Finally, I used some Liquid Pearls and Stickles to add some sparkle. Pop on over to Susi's Shop and take a look at all her fabulous new images. They're so much fun to play with!

I'll never be able to catch up on all that I missed while I was gone but I do hope to be around to visit you all very soon! Happy Days to you all! :o)

This photo shows some of the sparkle:

Materials Used:
Papers: Studio Calico - Heyday Collection;

Liquid Pearls - Buttercup and Petal Pink,

She's a cutie and so clever how you've 'housed' her in those pretty petals. Great papers too.

Oh my she is adorable. You coloured her so beautifully and live that you made her home a flower. Reminds me of a TV show when I was a little girl where the girl came out of her flower.
I have to look into these images so sweet
