Hello! Today the incredible May Flaum and I are celebrating National Craft Month with some art journaling pages! Be sure to check out May's blog HERE for her project.
I stamped the Prima Paper Doll Audrey Stamp on text paper and colored in her skin and hair with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in supplies). I stamped her again on leftover Authentic Classique Beauty patterned papers from the Simon Says Stamp March 2015 Card Kit of the Month. I fussy cut the clothing and the hat and adhered them to the paper doll. I added shading to her "clothing" with Cool Gray Copic Markers.
I created the background for the page by trimming a 12x12 sheet of "cloud design" paper to 6x8. I used the Silhouette Cameo to die cut the tree from the Kerri Bradford This & That Spring Kit, the fence from the KBS This & That Lucky Kit and the title from the KBS Today Is A Good Day Kit.
I created grass using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Die to complete the background. I adhered the paper doll and finished her ensemble with some black Prima Say It With Crystals "jewelry" and a bow for her hat created with the Mama Elephant Dainty Bow Die.
I finished the scene with some backyard critters stamped from the Lawn Fawn Hello Baby Stamp Set and Lawn Fawn Critters In the Burbs Stamp Set. I colored the images in with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them to the page.
I stamped the date on the page using Kerri Bardford's new Time Again Stamp Set.

I get asked about the text/dictionary paper I use for my dolls a lot. I am using text papers from my scrapbooking stash. A lot of them are old and are no longer available but I like to use up what I have on hand. I've done a search and found similar and current text papers that you might be interested in. Click any of the links below to start shopping:
The paper doll stamps average 8" in height and it can be a challenge to find an acrylic block that fits them in both width and height. I love this Prima Handle Block.
The album I've chosen for all my paper doll art journaling pages is THIS Brighton Pier Handbook Album from Studio Calico.
