China Dolly - happier expression - finally finished

Here's the final China Dolly, now with a more benign expression.Earlier version of China Dolly. I think she looks a bit cross.
Subtle change of expression. I'm happier now, and so is she!

Hope you can spot the difference.

And it makes me happy, that you're happy and so is she.

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hi wwwyalaecom! I'm flattered that you like the design of my blog - thank you. Vistaprint hosts my whole website and the blog is a part of this. I chose the basic design from one of their templates but then adapted it for my own needs and designs. As I am an artist and designer, the 'look' of the site including the blog is important to me, and of course, I also want to show my current ongoing work to visitors. Similar to a word processing program, the structure lets me insert pictures and text which I resize according to need. Sometimes the program is a bit clunky, but I fiddle with picture sizes and text placing/colours until I get the design I want. So although there is a basic grid which gives continuity, each blog page looks different from the last. I'm sometimes tempted just to put text, but can't resist adding images to illustrate the text - to me, that's the main fun of creating the blog. Just wish more people out there would comment! Let me know if this is helpful.
