31DC2013 - Day 11: Polka Dots? Matrioshkas!

So... I think I overdid it today! 

But, see, I 've got this thing about me where I always push my own limits a little further.
I just hope you'll be able to still see the polka dots - today's theme after all.

If for nothing else I'm incredibly proud of how I'm trying new things, even if I have to kill my back for almost two hours and strain my eyes for longer than they should and/or deserve ;)

If you're with me on Pinterest, you might by now have an idea of what I prepared for today.
So, without further ado, let me show you my polka dot matrioshkas! :D




And let us begin by introducing Mila - I think the turquoise polka dots in her midnight blue couture gown make for a gorgeous contrast!
Don't be intimidated by her stern look - she is rather sweet!
(Drawing faces are probably the worst and most difficult thing in the whole wide world - hence her frowny intimidating look - hehehe)





But come meet the other girls!
Index is Katerina, with an almost geisha like dress about her, where the polka dots form tiny flowers.





Next up, and my favourite, I must add, is Aniuska - I find her face the most expressive and Matrioshka like :)
Her polka dots are a bit harder to see, but they're worth it - it's a rather modern blue and red combination, with random midnight blue stripes and zig-zaggy white polka dots.
Nice, hey?




Élena is next, dressed in a most sweet and cute pink robe, with white and purple polka dots and a nice green head scarf to highlight her gorgeous raven black hair.





Last but not least, we have shy Irina, trying not to show up too much, for she thinks she's got not so pretty features. 
She's forgetting, though, she's the only one wearing a golden head scarf (only the prettiest do so, of course) and a combination of green and turquoise polka dots.



So, now that you know them all, who's your favourite? ;)
Are you also a fan of matrioshkas? 
Tell me all about it you know where and have yourselves a super duper evening! :D


Hugs & Kissies,
Mina *
