    @MrsPeel Cynthia - this definitely challenged me!! I was inspired by the Spring Vivaldi - love that one. It is my life - quick, fast paced, a lot going on. And I loved the summer palette.

    I had fun playing with this one! I couldn't get a face I liked, so I left it blank. I used the arms, body, and head, and was inspired by Autumn - the true harvest season :agree

    My first attempt at anything like this. Normally, I would have chosen winter or fall as my theme (based on the Vivaldi inspiration piece), but I went with spring because I had a vision of tumbling spring flowers for hair and wild butterflies being released from a jar – not really activities for those seasons (in my imagination anyway). She does have a head…it’s just a view from behind & is under the crown & flower “hair,” as is the other arm. I hope this is okay.

    This Challenge Was Really Challenging For Me & Took A Long Time To Finish...I Just Love Art Dolls But Not When I Actually Have To Create Them Myself...I Don't Have Any Experience Using Them Other Than A Couple Of Layouts Here & There But My Layout Designs Are Not As Artsy As The Idea Of The Theme May Suggest...I Mix Them Into
    My Own Style Etc And I Don't Really Own Any Kits Including Art Dolls...I Listened To The Music Supplied For The
    Challenge As Inspiration & I Chose Winter As My Theme...My Layout Went In So Many Different Directions Before I Was More Or Less Happy With The Result...I Don't Think My Layout Looks Artsy At All But I Did The Best I Could...

    *The Idea For My Layout-Polly Is An Art Doll Who Loves! Loves! Loves! Winter & Her Favorite Thing To Do Is Ice
    Skate...Blue & Yellow Are Her Favorite Colors...She Has A Bright & Sunny Personality To Match Her Love Of The
    Color Yellow...She Is Also A Bit Of A Fashionista & She Loves To Match Up Her Outfits With Her Accessories...She
    Is All Dressed Up For Winter Ice Skating Sporting Her Turquoise Skating Dress With Snowflake Buttons,Her White
    Winter Fleece Tights & Turtleneck & Her Matching Figure Skates Along With Her Matching Mittens,Winter Hat & Ear Muffs...She's All Ready For A Day Of Ice Skating On This Chilly,Frosty & Sunny Winter Day...*

    *For My Polly Layout-I Used*

    *Glisten-Dawn Inskip
    *Brand New Day-Lynn Grieveson
    *Snowman-Snow And Ice-Snow Bear-All By Kristin Aagard
    *All The Feels-Carpe Diem-Pink Reptile Designs
    *Winter Love-Vector Graphics & Seamless Patterns-Font Bundles Store
    *Art Doll Journal Templates-Tangie Baxter

    I have never, EVER done anything like this before...ever! And I'm an arty crafty kind of gal! Anyway, here's my take! I found a head that I liked on pinterest (the body is from the template) and everything else from one of my fav new kits! I planned on using it with me in as a photo...but this works! :) I used Autumn as my inspiration, I love those colours! :)

    Phew, this was a really hard one for me. What a curve ball, @MrsPeel. You're keeping us on our toes! Here's my VERY FIRST EVER attempt at making an Art Doll. Mine is a doll, don't know if it's artsy enough?

    Spring was my inspiration, can't wait for it to be here!

    I struggled first but then I found the paper with the cup and it all came together within half an hour! It was very fun to do!!

    I was definitely inspired by the Spring music! Love it. :)
