Hey everyone! I've been off living in Korea for some time and it's been quite a while since I last posted... but I'm back with a vengeance! The last couple of weeks, I've been designing paper dolls. I've always loved paper dolls, and now that I'm back in the good ole' U S of A, I have all the paint and tiny brads my heart desires!

This one's probably my favorite one I've made so far. It's an articulated body with changeable bird heads. Each head is attached to a tab with an egg on the end. The tab pops out just above the doll's hand, so he holds each bird's respective egg depending on which head he's wearing!

You can choose between the scarlet ibis:



American robin:



Cockatiel:



or raven:



I have a couple more designs to upload over the next few days, but the birdboys might be my fav.
