Today catching up with my Paper Doll Art Journaling and sharing two of the remaining four months for 2014! The remaining two and a look at my entire 2014 Paper Doll Art Journal will be shared tomorrow.
This page is my June 2014 journal entry (yep, I totally worked out of order). It's my goal to actually do one art journal entry per month for 2015....
I used leftover patterned paper from the June 2014 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month. I stamped the doll on text paper and colored in the skin and hair with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in the supplies). The paper is from the My Mind's Eye Mildred 6 x 6 Paper Pad and many of the pattens from this paper pad are sized nicely for outfitting paper dolls! I used the Julie Nutting Candie Doll Stamp for this page design and the Hats #2 Stamp Set to complete her outfit.
I stamped the doll on a text paper that is no longer available and was in my stash. I've linked to similar text papers below the supply list near the end of this post.
The romantic feeling of the doll's outfit looked matched the look of this awesome Webster's Pages Strawberry Fields paper that I used for the base of my art journal entry. To give a bit of depth and dimension to where the doll is "standing", I die cut a bit of the paper I trimmed off using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die. I love how it helps the paper doll appear to be standing in the wheat field.
I stamped a quote from the Avery Elle Look Up Stamp Set using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I finished the page with stamped and paper pieced butterflies from the Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals Stamp Set.
This next page is my July 2014 journal entry....
I stamped the Riley Doll Stamp on text paper again and colored her with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in the supplies). I used leftover 6x6 patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Pen Pals Paper Pad to outfit her (I sort of dig the red, white & blue theme for a July art journal entry). I also used another of the "hats" from the Hats #2 Stamp Set to complete her ensemble.
I love the Crate Paper Open Book paper for this page. I love how it looks like the buildings are behind the doll "scene"! I stamped a phrase from the MFT Bokeh Builder Stamp Set above one of the buildings using the MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I stamped first and second generation hearts form the Sending Happy Thoughts Stamp Set using MFT Wild Cherry Ink around the phrase and doll to add a pop of color and interest to the page design.
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. My favorite part of Simon from this page? The cute letter from the Sending Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in his mouth!
