Garden Dreamer Paper Doll
I am really running with this paper doll thing. Ever since the paper doll contest started on Snagging Stampers, I have been cutting out little bodies and decorating them up.
This is my latest creation. She has been cut out for a while. I never could find the right background to put her on. I really wanted a dark background that would make her pop. But, after several attempts, I decided to put her on the front of this altered book.
She is equally fun and funky.
Her face is made out of Sculpey clay from a mold I have. I painted it with metalic paints. Her skirt is stamped and embossed leaves that I further painted gold. Her belt is a floral sticker. Her crown is a filigree jewelry finding. Her shoes are cut out of some paisley stickers I had laying about.
Of course, her hair is some twisted fibers. I considered making her braids, but braids didn't really seem to be her style.
I also made her a little necklace out of some seed beads along a piece of metallic embroidery thread.
There are a bazillion paper doll templates out there on the net to try. You don't need a template, though. You can make your own. If you haven't put yourself together a paper doll yet, try it now!
