because… sometimes in order to be happy, we need to do something risky..
..like… get a new pair of legs from a Sea Witch.. have only few days to get HIS love… or else, turn into a sea foam… hmmm…

A few days ago I woke up with this idea that I want to give you a chance to win a doll… but not any doll… doll of your dreams would be so much better, wouldn’t it?
So I announce the Faceup giveaway! It can be for any doll that you own and that could be painted (contact me if you’re not sure).
I will accept Blythte, Pullip, Dal, Dedo, Monster H, vintage dolls, BJD – simply, any kind of doll that comes to your mind.
The rules are pretty simple:

2 – to take part in a ruffle, leave a comment in this blog post
3-if possible add me to your Flickr/Instagram contacts if you have such account (this one is not a must)
Comments can be added until 7th September, the winner will be announced on 8th September (picked randomly)
Spam comments will be removed.
Faceup – means faceup + eye lashes only. No reroot, no custom eye chips, standard body. Winner must supply a doll & covers all shipping fees.
If a winner happens to be someone with active commission, it does not apply to that commission, but can be used on next doll.

New collection is available in my shop.
I had a break from painting, but I missed it too much!
ooak custom Blythe and “Felix the Cat” corset – my donation to BlytheCon Europe event in Barcelona.
See you there on June 29th!
♥ My Dears! This week I have something special for you… This week you will have a chance to win one of my original paintings:
“Poison” – wereable original cameo pendant
“Sprout” – original wall art on wood
More details here: KarolinFelix on Facebook
“Sprout” was presented in previous blog post.
“Poison” is a hot fresh original neckalce….
Woods. (part of the collection) available here. wood spirits and magic.. strange creatures and wild forces… gods of nature. Pop surreal fantasy. Original paintings on wood. Enjoy!
…. you’ve heard about her….. she’s often seen in fairytales…. in “Sleeping Beauty” she helped to create a magical forest of thorns around the castle..to protect it until the right time comes…. in “Rapunzel” thorns surrounded the tower, and Prince fell on them, becoming blind… Thicket is neither bed nor good. She just is. She’s one of the daughters of Woods, one of the spirits. In the forest, she can show you the path or turn you from it. Wherever she walks thorn thicket grows… If you ever see a dangerously beautiful girl with ginger hair with thorns in them…. a girl with green glow to her eyes… you will know you’ve met Thicket.
When a piece of wood wants to become a Pinocchio…. It was there inside the wood…. the shadow… that eye…longer nose…. the line of his cheek….that curious hat made of wood with a twig on the top. He was there all the time… I just released him. Pinocchio… born from wood & paint….. Together with the Talking Cricket…. his repressed conscience.
….. the spirit of mushrooms…. …..where she walks, mushrooms spring out from the ground… Amanita is pale, with some reddish freckles.. Her hair are a green, soft grass and mushrooms grow in them…. currently she “wears” Toadstools…. She sleeps in the roots of large trees, and when she wakes up, plate is waiting for her….. a large leaf filled with all kind of fungi shimmering with a morning due …. some would be very poisonous for a human…. those give her red eyes and make her see things…. things from the darkest heart of the forest.
Sprout is a spirit of life of the Woods…. she’s so very important… also…. she’s so tiny! Veiled by a green mist that reminds me of a seed. Sleeping though the whole winter, and when time comes she wakes up and a sprout appears on her head. Then she knows it’s time to turn into a green mist and wake up all the sleeping seeds…. slumbering seeds dreaming about big trees and wonderful shrubs they will become….
Fireflies are magical…. they appear in pure places filled with primal energy. For most eyes they are just tiny bugs, but …. some see their true nature…. they are Fairies…. and Whisperer is their Shepard. She knows all about them, guides them and protects from danger. She has that green glow in her eyes… in a darkness you could mistake her for fireflies that surrounds her…. She’s one of the watchful spirits of the Woods….
I know how I love to watch step-by-step work in progress photos, It’s probably the best part to see that transformation…
So…. I thought you would like to see how I paint my mini originals.
First thing – I pick theme, I imagine colors and choose frame that suits it. I do use frames available on Etsy, but they are in common use, so…. I have in plans to make my own, unique frames, and cast them myself. And oh! I plan real candies and some spooky themes too ^__^ … but for now, let’s get back to the painting process…
I already have a frame, and now what I need to do is to trace the cameo size on my specially prepared canvas.
**Canvas are really important here, as they create trully solid base for the painting – much more durable than paper. -Really?- you ask, well… hear this: One of my minis went through an ultimate crash test – somehow it landed in a cup with paint water and spent there at least 2 hours. When I realized that, I pulled it out, delicately pressed between tissue and left it to dry. Guess what… you could never tell something happened to it… it’s perfect. So don’t be afraid of a raindrops because it seems that you could swim with my cameos…
Ok, so I traced my outline and now I begin to sketch. Sometimes, if I’m not happy enough, it takes more than one attempt. But when sketch looks nice, and I approve it, it’s coated it with semi transparent layer of acrylics (as pencil can get mixed with colors, making them dirty).
And then I paint, paint, paiiiinnnntttt… with acrylics and watercolor pencils…….And when painting is done, I trim it, insert it into the frame and varnish. Voila!
Today all of it took me couple of hours, counting in the photo time and lunch time in between…
And I prepared something special for you – an animated gif from all the stages of painting, enjoy!
and P.S. Consider it as a sneak peek of this week cameos. Update on my Facebook Page on Friday.
( it might take a moment or two to load )
How about a bit of pop surreal craziness?
I just finished three new original pieces… those who visit my FB watched a bit of work in progress.
All three pieces are available, and I had real fun writing their stories….
And I want to tell you a bit about LOLA today.
Lola lives in her mysterious apartment,
which is like no other.
It exists between here and there…
each room is oval or round… in fact…
there is so many rooms that nobody knows their number…. walls are hairy…
and strange things happen when you least expect it.
well…you see…Lola is a Candy Fairy.
But those who think that “Fairy” means “good” …
have obviously never met a real enchanted folk.
They are… capricious and awesomely weird….
and each have some infinite task to perform.
Each morning, punctually wake and stretch like a cat…take a bath…
get dressed in whatever gorgeous gown appeared in her closet.
She does many superbly important things travelling through that endless apartment.
One of those “things” is harvesting a bunch of candies that have grown over the night on the Candy Machine.
those candies will later get delivered to various candy shops all over the world…
…and some lucky kid will have candy dreams that night.
