Today I'm sharing another entry in my paper doll art journal, this one featuring a doll and scene adorned with leftovers from the October 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. Limiting the paper choices also makes creation of the art journal pages a snap since I'm not overthinking it and going through my entire stash! ;)
I used the adorable Prima Julie Nutting Valentina Doll Stamp and the Prima Hats 1 Mixed Media Stamps to create a witch for my October page. I stamped my doll on an old October Afternoon patterned paper with a text background that was in my stash. *If you're looking for text patterned papers for your dolls I've linked to some of my favorites below. I colored in the skin and hair of my doll using Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in supplies). I thought green hair would make a fun addition to my cute witch!
The Basic Grey Grand Bazaar 6x6 patterned papers were perfect for creating a paper pieced ensemble!
I stamped pumpkins from the Thanksgiving Table Stamp Set and paper pieced them with the leftover patterned papers as well.
Like all my art journal pages for 2014 I've added Simon the dog to my page. This one is from the Seasonal Simon Stamp Set. I made him a witch hat using the Lawn Fawn Hats Off To You Stamp Set. I colored in Simon with Copic Markers as well and added Glossy Accents to his eyes and nose.
I stamped the phrase for my page with Versamark Ink using the Lawn Fawn Clark's ABC's Stamps and embossed the words with SSS Silver Fine Detail Embossing Powder and SSS White Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I added stamped and embossed bats and a hanging spider from the Trick or Treat Stamp Set to finish my page.
