PAO DOLL

Made a doll today for a swap at paperartistsonline.com
supposed to "represent" me. I took pics of my artwork, resized them and printed out on watercolor paper.
Cut out the shapes and attached to foam core board. Each piece is attached to the other with a loop of wire threaded with beads. Additional beads are hung off the edge for balance.
Found the idea in Somerset Studio Artists Cafe VOL2.

Fairies

Made this fairy up for a swap on Paperartistsonline.com.
They go together fairly easy and each one seems to take on it's own personality.
Lots of fun to make.
My fairy has wings made from a piece of tulle layered with thread scraps, embossing powder, micro beads, misty fuse fusible webbing and another layer of tulle. I cut out the wings and sewed around the edges with silver thread.
