Today we have a new collection of inspirations for you – and a new challenge too! All of us konw paper dolls of different kinds…some of us even collect them! they can be puppets ftom small theatre, little girls dressed in tiny skirts and blauses, moving dancers and dames on the strings… or even home decor pieces, displayed on the cupboards or coffe tables… or in the shop windows! All of them have got some magic inside, memories of childhood, careless fun of playing with doll images…and they have their own personalities too!  Paper dolls are very inspiring – just look at the projects of our Design Team and think, what other possiblilities are in front of you? Join the fun!

This idea appeared long time ago. Mini art-journal based of the unnecessary book which I saved before discarding. I made the cover, using papers and embellishments from the two magical collection: Dreamer and Wonderland. Paper doll, I just drew on one of the sheets and colored. I sewed a lot and distressed, append buttons and other trinkets. I have fun with this, and papers from both collections are explicitly designed for such experiments!

What a fun inspiration this month! I’ve often thought of my girls, as my dolls, loving to playing dress-up with them, and even more so to create art with their precious faces and personalities. I think the “All I Ever” collection worked splendidly to create their patterned skirts, caps, banners, and such!
