I have done a little bit of creating so I will share it with you over the next couple of days but forgive me if I don't get round to you all to comment on your fabby creations... I will try my best to visit as many of you as I can though ok.
A little while ago I downloaded Cen's loft free 'A little love' digi kit ( which contains some gawgus elements and fabulous papers) which you can find here and knew exactly what I wanted to do with some of the papers.
I have had one of these artists poseable wooden dolls for years and always intended to do something with it but never seemed to be inspired but I just loved the papers and knew they were what I had been waiting for to pretty her up :D
I had a grand old time ripping and tearing the papers after printing them out ( I love hybrid projects) and added the torn pieces to the limbs and head of my doll by layering and gluing in a papier mache fashion.
The joints, hands and feet were coloured with felt tip pen... heh heh... much less messy than paint and because the wood is quite bare the ink sinks in fine.
I cut out a ladylike top from the green heart paper and also punched out a flower to add a corsage to her waist using a circle of fringed paper and a button for layering, inking the edges of the flower for more definition. I crumpled the paper for the skirt before smoothing with my hands and cut it out with a bit of an angle so that I could add this gorgeous lace to the bottom of it and finally gave her a pair of shoes by drawing them on with a darker pen.
She will now have pride of place in my craft room and will still be useable to sketch with and it will be fun to change her pose as the mood takes me.
See u soon
