play art sunday

I had other art plans for this weekend but Sharon over at All NorahS Art was having a Paper Doll party! Well, I couldn't resist a party especially a paper doll party. So that is what I did today and here they are. I couldn't make just one...kinda like Pringles.
Here is my first doll. Her name is Gracie. I started with a dress pattern and went from there. Her dress was done with alcohol inks. Then I gave her a hat with a flower and fishnet stockings.
And I gave her some yarn hair.
The second doll is Rose and she is somewhat a diva. Her dress is also alcohol ink. She has a silk flower on her hat. She see's the world thru rose colored glasses.


My last doll for today is Katy. Her dress has flowers from a paper napkin and she had to have a purse to accessorize her outfit. She wears a crown every where and has felt hair.

Oh me oh my. What fun we had. Your girls are so cute. I love all three but the Rose....well, she is a diva for sure. I didn't expect to spend all day making paper dolls either. I've got five more nearly finished. I was only going to make 3 but I got an e-mail this morning from my sis-i-l in Arizona and she said my neices both love paper dolls. Well I just added 2 more to the little assemply line. Mine are all very similar but they are going in 4 different directions so that's good "enough". I knew I should have never done it because I fear I'm hooked. I see more in my future especially after seeing yours.
Thank you for coming to my paper doll party. It was so much fun.

Cool stuff - I never new paper dolls could be so...so...so cool.

I mean - I am a guy after all. I really liked the write-ups on their personalities. I was particularly drawn to Rose (no pun intended).

The stencils were on the cabinets when we bought the house...I am not sure if they will be staying though.
