Over at Norah'S was a wonderful paper doll party..scroll down through her blog and see the thoughts behind this...I wish I could be in her head for a day! Her painting is amazing! Anyways, I always wanted to make a paper doll, so I decided to go! I baked a cake for the occasion!
Remember those paper dolls you played with as a child? Well, I recall only having one book of them...after punching out the doll and clothes with little tabs I was very frustrated that the clothes wouldn't stay on...OK, my perfectionism started there!
She was SO fun to make! I used acrylic paint on watercolor paper, jeweled & plain brads, and a little varnish for eyes & lips for lip gloss.
Meet the coolest bus driver ever! Of course, after my creative juices were flowing, I looked at these pictures and noticed that I have my hat & gloves, but not my coat! This really is what I look like these cold days...I always have my Target hat (mine is not shown on link, but if your not familiar with Target -great site), my knitted scarf, brown gloves, and Teva shoes (not exactly that one, but almost)....and of course, a coat! ...and no my pants are not that short ;} but I wanted you to see my socks! Also, if you click on the last picture you can see on top of my pants are the words 'perception, cognition, and behavior'...what a hoot...driving a school bus is a major study of all three words- all dependant on each other!
SO, there you have my very first paper doll! I had great fun and really stepped out of my boundaries on this one... I feel another one in the makin' sometime soon! Thanks Sharon!
