Welcome Sugar and Cookie for the Christmas season. They are sugar cookies with their own icing outfits. How will you dress your sugar cookies? Can you make more outfits for them? They would love an extra suit of clothes. Have fun this Christmas.
Give Sugar and Cookie their own story to go with their outfits. Will Santa have them in his sack? Or will a little boy or girl have them out on a plate for Santa….I hope Santa doesn’t EAT them !!!!
Wanda wants to go trick or treating this year for Hallowe’en. She has her witches costume all ready and Twinkles her cat is all dressed up too. Won’t you take her trick or treating with you this year? Finish her story. What will she gather when she is out? Which friends will she meet? What will happen if a goblin asks for a trick in exchange for a treat?
My first coffee filter book, done for the Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo Group. I created an understated book in colours from the old Japanese wood cuts. Bangles and metallic threads are at the end of each tag. The tags are Geisha dolls and one extra kimono for each doll. Each pocket holds one of the dolls and has her name in English on one side and Japanese on the other. Prisma colours gently coloured some of the images on each covering page. I am sharing my Geisha paper dolls. The image is one I gleaned from colouring pages on line. It was listed at several different sites. Paper flowers, a peacock dangle and some soutache braid around the blue rings finish the simple Japanese look of the book.
Here are the dolls and the kimonos. Each doll has a name of a Japanese flower. In order they are: top left is Lotus, top middle is Sunflower, top right is Plum, bottom left is Cherry, bottom middle is Willow and bottom right is Iris. Have fun with these little dolls.
Marzie and Bubbles were created for a swap with the Art For the Creative Mind Mixed Media Yahoo Group. She whispered in my ear that she wanted to be both a Mixed Media doll and a paper doll so here she is. This is the mixed media doll. Her little fin on the end of her tail has a brad so she can swim just about anywhere she wants to go and Bubbles, her trusted side kick goes with her.
Marzie and Bubbles would love to play with your young daughter or granddaughter. She needs her story finished with summer fun. She would love to swim your way.
If your young girl is an artist she can create her own little Mermaid and Bubbles. Imagine the adventures they could have during those rainy days with nothing to do.
Meri is here to say ‘hello, won’t you play with me this Christmas?’. She is all set for whatever games you play, whether it be snug in her little housecoat and slippers or out in the snow with her snowsuit. Meri can help trim the tree or sit down for a snack of gingerbread men. She also has a best Christmas Day outfit to wear while opening her presents.
Merri would make a great stocking stuffer or be used as a quiet time activity for your child. There are earlier Christmas Paperdolls as well. They would all like to play so please feel free to download them.
These pieces were all made for the ArtForTheCreativeMind Yahoo group. The three wooden spools had a mind of their own and my muse just went with the flow. I had originally wanted all white and light blue and glittery spools, but they told me they wanted to look a bit like French vintage. So French vintage it was. I used large beads and small as well as cord and wire for the hangers, even a pipe cleaner. Some French vintage papers helped give the ‘French’ feel to them.
My advent calendar wreath was another piece that grew as I made it. I knew I wanted the Matryoshka dolls to be a part of it. First the pattern had to be drawn and I chose to create that in Photoshop Elements which made it easy to create the little faces. Christmas papers were used for the outfits. Finding the right size of prints became a difficult task as many of the paper’s designs were too large. I then glued them onto black card and created 25 different inspirational words instead of numbers for each December day until Christmas. These little dolls can be removed from the wreath to be used as tags at a later date.
