I made this pictures for a Swap I did last month and since my partner received I think it's okay to share it with the paper gang.



I made the paper doll from a dover design (costume clip art) collection and then mounted it on a canvas I coved with gel medium and stamped into.  I found the cake stickers in a wedding scrapbooking collection and colored them with markers.  The finished picture is 9 X 12 inches.  I'm really happy with it.

Very cool!
What is her hair made from...bits of paper or is it patterned paper (roses perhaps) (I'm having a hard time figuring that out)?

I used patterned paper, I think I bought it at JoAnns.  It looks like a photo of rose buds, and I just cut out the inner part of the rose so it looks like her hair is a curled mass one on top of another.

I saw this in the swap gallery and loved it! I especially adore the use of sheet music.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Thanks everyone.  I decided that I need to make a series of these just for myself.
