Paper doll

First, I've never made a single paper doll in my life. Yes, I know it's strange, but when I was a little girl I never played with any dolls - I played with teddy bears and Lego. ^^
Second, I never made a single ATC - I enjoyed them all over the blogs but never tried my hand in it.

So, today, after a hectic week of finishing and taking photos of my new products for the folk gallery (pictures tomorrow), I just slowed down, got inspired by the wonderful creation of Sharon's from All Norah's Art and made my ATC paper doll! *^v^*

You may know her from my art journal because she suddenly appeared on the pages at the beginning of this year. She hasn't told me her name yet, so I'm still waiting for this.

She consists of two ATCs, head, a pair of legs and and pair of hands split in the elbows.
Next time I would change one thing - I would choose harder paper for the legs because they bend too much, but on the whole I'm happy with how she looks.

On Tuesday I'm meeting my best friend Anna for the journaling and painting session, maybe I can talk her into making a paper doll herself as well! *^v^*


  1. Oh my Joanna,
    You have no idea how trilled I am that you made this cute sweet little paper doll. I haven't done it myself until I was a wee girl and yours is wonderful. Wasn't it cool using a sweet face from your journal. It makes everything connect to you. I love her.
    Thank you so much for coming to the party and playing paperdolls with me.
