Third Paper Doll

Here's the last paper doll for the swap on Doll Street. She'll be going off to Judi in Alaska tomorrow or Friday.
I combined two of Patti Culea's rubber stamps for this one, painted her with watercolor pencils, added a skirt and some "bling bling" (love that term) and she's ready to go!
I hope to make more paper dolls soon, but right now I'm getting ready for my August visit from some of my children and grandchildren, and then a friend from New York (Grasshoppa!) will be here after that!
So much to look forward to!

Paper Dolls

Here are three paper dolls I've made...some for a Doll Street swap, some for fun.
The first is from a Mirkwood Designs template, the second is mostly original using a
face mold from a commercial mold. The third is my embellishments on Linda Fleming's African woman design. Wish I could get a photo of her that shows up all her "glitter". I'm working on a fourth while trying to get my house in order for company starting next week. Then friend Jeff(Grasshoppa) is coming down from New York to give some of us a class in decorating emu eggs!!! And he's promised to come and play a bit in my studio working with alcohol inks, etc. Toooooo much fun!
