Playing with Dolls

Hei! Nyt leikitään nukeilla... paperinukeilla!!!  Tervetuloa toiseen Craf-Room haasteeseen. Kiitos edelliseen haasteeseen osallistujille, vautsi, miten paljon yli 200!
DT Kim B on valinnut seuraavan aiheen "tuunatut paperinuket". Olipa ihanaa vaihtelua kokeilla tehdä näitä... siis tein heti useamman! Lapsena pidin kovasti paperinukeilla leikkimisestä ja vaatteiden tekemisestä niille - eli vähän sitä samaa nytkin. Tässä ensimmäinen, lisää tulee tässä parin viikon sisään muistutuksena haasteesta.
Hello, welcome to the second Craft-Room Challenge: Here's our Dt Kim's text:

Take our Logo  Thanks again for all your wonderful entries in our challenge.  This week I got to pick the theme--- Altered Paper Dolls.
When I was growing up, paper dolls were a favorite toy, so I choose Altered
Paperdolls for the Challenge this week.  So lets think of our regular paper
dolls that many of us loved as a child.-- Then, alter it. 
Make a whimsical, sweet, cute or grungy paper doll.   It could be kooky or it can be sweet. 
We can't wait to see what you all make.  (Kim)
Here's my first one...yes I made few, just love to make them, I laughted at my hubby, that am I fool or something, he just looked...not a comment! Next picture shows you how I did this!
I found this gorgeous paper doll fabric and had to buy a little (eurokangas), draw the lines and made my doll.
Face is from Sweet Pea Stamp (Karen Middleton), coloured with Promarkers and Distress Inks. She's wearing butterfly stockings, stamped and embossed. The dress is paper from K&Co Citronella and text is Artgirz' rubber stamp (Versafine vintage sepia, clear ep).Butterflies: Martha Stewart and Marianne design. Come to play with us!

Hi Mervi

Great dolls .. .. they remind me of the ones my Mum used to buy me as a child.

You used to have to cut everything out and the clothes would have little paper tabs on the shoulders or waist so the you could keep dressing them up in different outfits .. .. .. it would keep me quiet for ages. That must have been lovely for Mum!!!

I hope all is good with you.

Love Jules xx
