Shadow Box Doll
Here is my latest creation, I am posting it on my blog for those of you who are not in the Paper Whimsy to see.
It is a shadow box paper doll. My shadow box was a tray to hold childrens blocks in its former life. I covered the box with papers from Tuscan Rose I then made the paper doll using Paper Whimsy girl and ribbon, mounted on to thick cardstock. I gave the doll her own dolly to hold, this was found in the childrens craft section of a local shop. I cut out a Paper Whimsy face and stuck it onto the dolly. The edges were trimmed with lace and then flowers, buttons and beads added for embellishment - and there you have it; the only thing left to do is to put the small dowels and wire for hanging (made by my lovely neighbour, Gordon).
Then it will be flying across the ocean to live with Linda East in Oklahoma. I have written a "poem" on the reverse introducing Betty and her doll Boop to her. This was fun to make - on to my next project a fan (of course I will post pictures when it is completed).
