PAPER DOLLS


This is paper doll that I made for a swap coming up. There weren't any limitations, so I used a face that I painted that was part of collage from my Towers and Turrets class. I added a shawl of some dyed cheesecloth I made, and bits of vintage lace. I also used some papers and vintage buttons, and actually had a blast with this. Someone in the group mentioned it looked Frida-esque.....and now I see that, and like it!
That's for popping in and making my day!
