Today I'm sharing another entry in my paper doll art journal, this one featuring the awesome boy paper doll Aidan and one of the newer girl stamps, Keira, Simon the dog plus a wintery snow scene adorned with leftovers from the November 2014 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit (this kit is sold out but many of the products are available for purchase individually and are linked below in the supplies). Creating art journal pages is one of my favorite ways to "use up" leftovers from the card kits every month. I adore the Lawn Fawn Snow Day papers in this kit. Some of my favorites!
I stamped the Prima Julie Nutting Aidan Paper Doll Stamp and Prima Julie Nutting Keira Paper Doll Stamp on text background patterned paper and colored in their skin and hair with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in supplies).
I stamped the dolls again on several of the Lawn Fawn Snow Day patterned papers and fussy cut them, paper piecing the "clothing" together. I added shading with gray Copic Markers to give the clothing depth and dimension to match the dolls. I added some pearl gemstones and the cute enamel bow to the girl doll's dress for a sweet finishing touch.
For the girl's shoes, I colored them in with my favorite black gel marker.
I stamped one of the phrases from the Mama Elephant Alpine Carolers Stamp Set on the background of my page and added an enamel heart sticker below it.
Like all my art journal pages for 2014 I've added Simon the dog from the Seasonal Simon Stamp Set to my page. I colored him with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents to his eyes and nose. Using the text paper for Simon helps tie him in with the dolls and the rest of the page desgin. I adorned him with one of the bow enamel stickers as well to complete the page design.

Looking for an acrylic block big enough for these cling doll stamps? I love the 4x8 Tim Holtz stamp in THIS set but I recently ordered the new Prima 4x8 Stamp Holder Block and love that it has a handle! I'll be using it in upcoming art journal paper doll videos:
