Art Dolls meet Journal play...

The Paperartsy Art Dolls challenge finishes later this afternoon, there have been some incredible projects shared by the team over the last two weeks, and entered to the draw too.  I just had time to play again, in my journal.


My journal page started with some cherry red fresco smeared on from a previous project and developed from there - I added bubble gum and snowflake to blend and contrasts, and some mark making with claret and the edge of an old credit card.

 I used a mixture of stamp sets from Emma Godfrey for Paperartsy, and archival inks in magenta hue, plum, red geranium and watering can and stamped Dream and Colour (Emma's) and wrote 'in' on some old book page in black


took the head from Dina's "Lonely Girl" for the head of my art doll...
her legs are from one of the clucky birds from an old Ink and the Dog sets, the arms are by Emma, and the body from a One Penny plate.

added some glass beads to the top of her 'dress'

 Off for an afternoon of football on the telly now!  Entering this to the Paperartsy challenge here
