Well, I finally finished one of the original art dolls I started over a year ago. It was trial and error and quite the learning experience.
I did learn that I liked creating my dolls on a smaller scale!!! I was pleased with the way my prints worked with the figure. The hair is done in leather.

These paper dolls were very much inspired by the very talented Judith Thibaut
She created her fabulous dancing Madonnas and I had been searching for a way to create a paper doll using some of my old prints that would look nice. So Judith posted some wonderful dolls and I was inspired.
The dolls are made from old collagraph, mono and etching prints, and fabric. The fabric is sandwiched between two pieces of printed paper and then machine stitched. They are embellished with beads, hardware, leather, wire, feathers, tulle, and silk fabric.
