It has been a while since I have created a new paper doll. We had a lesson in Lifebook 2015 with figures and water colours that reminded me of paper dolls and they enchanted me. Meet Penny and Wendy all ready for any adventure you may want them to follow.
The stamped image challenge at the Art for the Creative Minds Yahoo group brought us a stamped image of a lady’s head in the mail. I used a handful of stamps to stamp onto card and then cut them out and collaged them into a dress for the head. I then scanned her in so I could print her out at a reduced size. I used Tom Bow markers to colour her after laying down some clear glitter glue. The markers coloured the glitter as well so I had matching glitter on her dress.
I also created a smaller size to put on a 5×5 inch card. This one I chose to leave plain except for a few little stick ons.
These little girls were fun fun fun to do. Danielle wanted us to cut her out and place her on a clothespin and add story words to a cup and attach her. I just simply wanted to keep painting little girls so that is what I did. Paper dolls and water paints .. is there anything better? I think not. The first one was done as Danielle did and I used her supplied pattern and the second one I changed from the pattern. The second two I drew myself and I also gave them big smiles.
Fanny is a paper doll created for the Art For The Creative Mind Yahoo group. She is wearing her finest suede vest, hat, boots and wristlet with lots of gears and beads and her best silk skirt. She is gathering together for an evening of fun at the annual God and Goddess Convention and ready to party !!
Fanny is made of chipboard with a black velvet covering. Her suede hat, vest, boots and wristlet are made from the backing of an old belt, the gears are washers. I created the doll and then dressed her one piece at a time, building up the wardrobe. I found her name here: Steampunk name generator
