This is the last Pennant for a little bit. I am now caught up through January and will not make another until the next installment in February.
I saved my most favorite pennant for last. I just love the sassy feel of this doll and gave her my dark hair just because I could. At one point in my life my hair was actually this curlie thanks to a wild perm phase. I wasn't sure if her light blue raincoat and boots were going to look the way I wanted. They looked too gray until they were on the background. I think the pink bits brighten them up just right without being over the top.
I am also tickled with the rainbow. I originally made a sponged rainbow, which while it looked good, just didn't feel right. Then I found this perfectly colored paper in the pad I was using and went with it. A little crystal glitter on the edges of the rainbow and cloud and it was just right. The raindrops are another dollar bin find that I bought and stuck in my stash for a rainy day.
The umbrellas is a fun Marianne diecut that I have been longing to use. I wasn't sure it wouldn't be to frou-frou for this sassy girl, but it seems to work. I added a few clear dewdrops for a more watery feel. I tried it with and without them and went back and forth on the decision. I finally went with and I think I like them. What about you? Yes or no, either answer is good for me and I am really curious what you think. I love creative feedback.
So Miss Sassy here needed a gold necklace to go along with the necklace thing I have going but she really didn't have a necklace neckline. I think her little gold choker is perfect for her fun style.
Do they still make those little ball ponytail holders? I know my girls wore them when they were little, but I haven't seen them around in a while. I decided Miss Sass would like them for the retro feel and added some with liquid pearls.
