Revisions To LuLu, LeAnn, and Lidia - An Adorable Trio Of Mixed Media Victorian Collage Art Dolls



LeAnn, LuLu, and Lidia are the cutest, most adorable trio of Victorian little girls. They love to laugh and love having fun. There is never a dull moment when they are around. In fact, they are so mischievous you really have to be on your toes when you're around them.

They are mixed media Victorian collage art dolls that I made back in September of 2014.  Shown below is how they looked back then.


Shown below and in the picture at the top of this post is how they look now:




They are a trio of small mixed media art dolls.  I was pleased with their size, outfits and embellishments.  I wasn't totally happy with their paper faces as I thought some of the faces were just a little too big.  So, I decided to revise them and give them paper-clay faces.

LeAnn is the doll shown on the left in the 2nd picture from the top of this post above.  Here's how she used to look:


Here's how she looks now:
