    Hé another mask, and now in Blue !! It’s wonderful Deja !!
    I don’t think she looks sad, it’s more dreamy !!
    Very well done, love the straight hair and so it’s totally different !!
    Hugs, Connie

  • Thank YOU so much Connie. Glad she looks more dreamy than sad.
    Hair..always a challeng to do..
