I finally have another Paper Doll Art Journal Page to share. I know it's been awhile and many of you have been asking. I have three started and unfinished. Too many deadlines and not enough time to finish pages and edit videos! My plan is to get caught up through July within the next couple of weeks.
Today I'm sharing my April 2015 page. I used some of the leftover Bazzill Gold Foil specialty paper from the Simon Says Stamp April 2015 Card Kit to outfit the Julie Nutting Rita Doll Stamp. I added a die cut window and "floor" to the background and stamped a colored a sweet kitten from the Mama Elephant Purrfect Pair stamp set to sit on the windowsill.
The Julie Nutting Rita Doll Stamp was stamped on an older scrap of Echo Park Yours Truly text paper with the MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and her skin and hair were colored in with Copic Markers. The dress was stamped on a piece of Bazzill Gold Foil specialty paper and colored with Copic Markers to add detail. The belt and shoes were stamped on DCWV Foiled paper in gold, fussy cut and glued to the doll. The doll's gloves were stamped on a piece of Avery Elle Neutral paper, fussy cut and adhered to the doll, then the entire doll was fussy cut.
The small kitten from the Mama Elephant Purrfect Pair stamp set was stamped on the text paper and colored in with Copic Markers, then fussy cut.
The background of the page is a 6x8 trimmed piece of Webster's Pages Composition & Color Wallpaper patterned paper. The floor was created with some MME woodgrain paper. The window was die cut from a MME woodgrain patterned paper and the October Afternoon Campfire Star Gazing paper using a design in the Silhouette Online store (Arch Window: Design ID #42631). I adhered the window to the background and the kitten sitting in the windowsill.

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.
