21 and 22 of my “29 Faces in May” challenge to create 29 Faces in the 31 days of May, are both 2.5″ x 3.5″ ACEO art cards.
#21 “Umiko” is a Japanese name for “Child of the Sea.” She is an artistic nude BJD Doll (ball-jointed doll).
“Dad Gum” it!! There was so many names for water goddesses in almost every culture.
I had a hard time picking out one, but decided “Umiko” kind of felt right…(-:
She’s very flexible, has big eyes, and as you can see she loves jewelry, skinny dipping, warm summer nights, and the sea.
#22 This next one has a less imaginative name “Athletic Swimmer.”
(Don’t tell her I said this, but she was just another “face in the crowd” for me to reach my goal of 29 Faces)
She does have a cool bright blue bikini and blue beaded swim cap.

I will be posting some of these for sale on Ebay. Let me know if you have any favorite you would like to bid on and I will put it up for auction.
