Hey everyone! Today I'm really really excited to share a brand new layout featuring the Let's Polka Collection from Lawn Fawn.
I'm addicted to the cute new doll stamps and dies by Julie Nutting and thought what better to outfit these sweet girls than the 6x6 Let's Polka Collection papers! I used the Gracie Mixed Media Doll Stamp & Dies, Halie Mixed Media Doll Stamp & Dies and Zoe Mixed Media Doll Stamp & Dies, layered and adorned them in cute Let's Polka patterns and colored their skin and hair with Copics. Adding shading to the clothing with Copics and details with the Sakura White Opaque Glaze Pen, Sakura Black Glaze Pen, Sakura Clear Glitter Pen. Small dimensional embellishments like ribbon, trim and the LF Let's Polka Sequins complete these cute girls' ensembles!
To make the "scene" and to ground the dolls I added a "grassy" landscape from one of the 12x12 Let's Polka papers using a design from the Silhouette Online Store (Design ID #3353) die cut on my Silhouette Cameo. To give the wavy grass border more interest I added a border stamp using the Belinda's Borders Stamp Set. I colored in the stamped design with Distress Markers and highlighted the design with the Sakura White Opaque Glaze Pen.
I paper pieced the flowers from Blissful Botanicals, mushrooms from Critters In the Forest and ladybug from On the Mend to complete the border. I added detailing with Distress Markers and Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.
I stamped the title using Milo's ABC's and Quinn's ABC's. I followed the wavy line to add interest to the title design. The journaling is printed directly on the Hello Sunshine Collection 12x12 paper background.
The sun and clouds from Spring Showers die cut from Let's Polka 6x6 papers is the perfect finishing touch to the scene. I added a black border to the shapes with a black marker to match the rest of the design.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day I thought I'd share a video showing how I put together a doll: this one decked out all in green!
