still another paper doll

How many paperdolls can one person create? I think that depends on when you start and when you die. This seems to be turning into a life long journey. I have to quit...I just have to quit. I have a new grand daughter coming into this world August 28. I have quilts to make. So, hopefully, this will be the last paper doll for a while. And I really don't have words to describe her...just tell me what you think????

paper doll again

Same story up the stairs...only this time I knew exactly what doll I was going to make...but it didn't happen. Instead there was this ATC that I had made laying on the table. It grabbed my interest. A light bulb came on. And away I went. This one I am just not sure about. But here it is.

flower fairy paper doll

Here I go again. Went upstair to make another paperdoll. As usual not an idea in my head. So I started with the face. I thought perhaps it would take me somewhere. After finishing the face...still not any ideas...I thought about that box (ok it isn't a square box it is oval, so what do you call an oval box....surely it isn't a box) with the assorted silk/synsethic flowers in it. Everyone should do at least one flower fairy..so here is the result. Now the color is not right..I mean in the picture the colors are not true. What looks red is very dark pink.

I have discovered that paperdolls are habit forming....Now I didn't need another habit, obsession, etc.
I'm making 3 for a paperdoll swap on Dollstreet...Judi from Alaska is hosting. (sorry Judi can't remember your last name) She has a big job ahead with some 150 dolls headed to her home.
I cut out a bunch of doll parts a few days ago. Today the house was quiet and I decided it would be a good day to do some. Not an idea in my head. I picked up an old calendar I had decided to keep....just didn't know why I was keeping it at the time. Copies of Van Gogh paintings. Well I was inspired immediately. I thought how can you go wrong with Van Gogh picking your colors and theme.
Well, I'll let you look and see what you think.
