Here is the little book that I was telling you about that I was going to use for my 'altered book' mixed media project. I have a friend who rescues abandoned Barbies from the thrift and totally revamps them. Since I have long wanted to paint Barbie this conversation finally convinced me to give it a go.
This in no way looks like the Barbie I was painting but it's not too shabby as far as a portrait goes. Here is an artist who does a fantastic job painting Barbie. (More about her later.) Anyway I have maybe 10 $2.99 Barbies now (they were on sale) - so we will see how it goes. If you are 'two times thirty' and still love dolls - what better excuse to be in Toys R Us. Get yourself a Barbie.
