HI! I thought since I live very close to the Edgar Allen Poe Museum, this would be the perfect setting for Violaine to visit and for us to be photographed! What a fun project this was! =)

I came out with 2 sets of clothes for Violaine. A navy blue dress for her outdoor adventures. This dress comes with pockets which is handy for her to store extra films. A string of braided leather is attached to her camera. To top it all is the maroon hat which is useful when the weather is harsh.

A green casual dress with crocheted lace collar. This dress is suitable for attending informal events and parties. On her head is a gold ribbon, a simple accessory to complete her look.

My printer is broke down, so i decided to draw Violaine. I didn't want to cut her out, because i worked my butt to draw her and the clothes. ;p
Hope you like it.
I had fun while making this supergirl......... I loved what i did...............!!!!!!!!!!

I cut Violaine out, but when I turned my back she tried to abscond with one of my CDs!

The pictures were so cute that I couldn't figure what I wanted to put her in so I made it into a piece of art for a friend. I can't wait to see the rest of the book if I get a copy. Here's a shot of the framed picture. Happy

Here's my picture. I don't have a printer so i brought Violaine into photoshop and gave her some new clothes. Then got a picture of my niece and myself inside a playhouse and placed Violaine into the pisture with us. Love it. Hope you all enjoy it as much as i did making it.x
I don't have a printer at home, but I know EXACTLY what I'm going to do!! =)

Wanted you to know I posted a link to this article today on my blog.

I used Violaine's description to create a perfect room for her to be- Her photography developing room, with pictures hung up on the wall and a cup of tea with lots of sugar! I also made a new outfit for her and I dyed her hair too! I made all this and then I had to work out how to get me in the picure too- so look at the developing photos and you will see! (had to borrow my dads computer skills!)I hope you like this, I had alot of fun making it! XXX
