just dolls!...altered photo

jo,de and baby philly with our dolls at Christmas one year.
this was a super dark b/w photo to begin with. i took it to kinko's and enlarged the lighter,better part of the photo and had it printed on photo paper,then i soaked it in a tray of water,sanded it
,added color with adirondack re-inkers and golden quinacridone colors,then embellished with glitter,rhinestones and hats...jo gets the biggest hat since it is her birthday this week...she also gets the pompom !
i loved that doll...although she wasn't very cuddly...but she sure was cute!
