Not Your Ordinary Dolls…or Dresden Doll

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Scrapbooking Layouts

CHA and Paperworld left me with a couple of things to play – nothing more fun then putting some of those things together- including a really bad quality – nevertheless-cracking-me-up-photo of Anna and me.

I wanted the background look like an old club/poster wall – grungy and all :) …I think I succeeded LOL

The Dresden Doll is actually my first mold with Resin – I do have to redo the mold as there is a slight crease right on the face- but I wanted to use the first one anyway and I like it a lot. I had saved my little Dresden Doll FOREVER hoarding it for the best possible occasion and now…HARHAR – I just make more ….insert evil scientist laugh.

So that’s it…I got my grunge on :)

Other than that- working on a brand new Über*Media Online Workshop right now- actually two :) So stay tuned.

OH and wait…there is more!!!

I was asked if I could provide a banner/blinkie for Subscribers of Creative JumpStart 2013 for the sidebar of their blog. And the amazing Jamie did it again- she made those banners- one that is moving like crazy and one that is static :) I am a friend of static banners- but alas…you can choose ;) You can just download the banner you want and link up to here or to my blog if you want. Thank you :)

    This is fabulous! I love it :) I think you totally nailed it with the club/poster grungy wall look – I thought that before I read the line where you said that’s what you were going for :)

    Just….whoa. That background is incredible, Nat. The colors, the textures, the stitches, the grunginess. Whoa! Your Dresden doll is perfect, as is the color and fun you’ve added around your faces, reminiscent of Finn’s Jumpstart! True love at first sight!!

    This has been truly wonderful. I still have not made it thru all of the videos, but that is ok. It has been a hectic month. The ones I did see were very awe inspiring. Thank you.

    LoL that picture is priceless! Love what you did with the whole thing, though. The old club wall look really works! It’s really like you cut out a piece of a wall that had decades of layers of posters and paint and more posters – it must’ve taken you ages to build all that up!
