Emerson by RevRuby Emerson by RevRuby
whew! that was a lot of work!

sort of a commission. it was a service auction for a relief society activity. so i put her as a gift because the winner had her designed for someone else's new baby, Emerson. she was special to work on being that the winner had to have performed quite a bit of service to gain the points to spend on a full commission. and then to have it all given away to an equally deserving friend. this story really touches my heart.

started life as a blue peg, lovingly airbrushed in antique white with a blue patch actually done in lace in the place of her cutie mark, by colorscapesart

i started with her pole and bridle and went from there. it wasn't always easy and i didn't always have a clean plan, but she came out.

the blue detail of the cutie mark is hand painted by me and copied from the cover of a very special book "daughters in my kingdom" which my church has graciously handed out. i felt since the mother-to-be was expecting a girl it would be a nice touch. the little "E" on the hoof is similarly styled to match but in a vintage gold tone paint. everything i painted was a hand mix of colors except the vintage gold.

the many ribbon roses were hand made by me even before i had the pony! and the hair is 100% saran hair from restoredoll.com (i love kathy!) in 5 lovely baby colors matching all 5 colors of roses. there are many on the saddle, 5 at the top of the pole, and 3 in her hair which was carefully twisted and pinned for a simple style. i really tried to have all the tiny detailed well fleshed out, without overloading the pony.

i hope she is loved in her new home and i hope you enjoy seeing her
