Creepin onto the Farm...

Introducing Creeper LULA!
Isn't she one sassy gal?! I'm thinking she's giving Piper and Jill (one of my faves) a run for their money. She looks uber cool with her arm warmers and bad ass boots. She reminds me of me in my hay day minus the crazy pink & purple curly hair :)

Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Specialty Paper (Face and Bangs)

As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to showcase several sides of my styles. Today I have for you what I call the "Violent Pink Effect". Lol! I call it this because I love the color combo black, pink and white but because I prefer the hot bright pinks that can be overwhelming.  Ahhhh but Lula can handle it :)

I have to be honest, I was a bit intimidated by her hair (not the bangs but the curly part). I did do a test run (lol) to see how I would color her hair and how I would like it, weeeeell it turned out eh, a little flat. Those tight curls were hard for me to shadow plus I'm trying out new paper so I think that adds to it. So after a bit of hemming and hawing I decided to paper piece her together. So out comes the scissors and Lula is shred to pieces. I paper pieced her from head to toes. Lol. The only colored part is her face, bangs, arms and stockings. I had tried paper piecing before but not like this. I'm thinking I'm done with paper piecing for a bit because those tiny pieces were Arrrgggghhh!!! hehe. Plus I prefer my pencils. They've been good to me :D

Now for the good good stuff :)... Want a chance to win you own Creeper LULA? Leave some bloggy love here, some for the amazing Farmers and at the TGF Blog. I hear LULA is playing hide and seek in one of our blogs and you can be the lucky winner.   

Also don't forget about out the Farm Fashionista challenge going on (here). You still have a few days to play along. And who can forget about the brand new Clear Stamps that were released mid month. If you haven't picked them up then just add them to the Spectacular September Release :)

I will be playing with:
