New Paper Doll for my book....meet this sweet little Angel Matryoshka...Happy Paint Party Friday!!!


Hi Everyone! I am still fighting off this cough and cold...but spending as much time resting when I can....but this week I had to work on some new designs for my Paper Doll Book coming out in 2012....so I sat in bed all medicated and this little Angel popped in my head.....

I have always loved Russian nesting dolls and even created some years ago when I was lucky enough to get my hands on some wooden blank dolls.....I thought this would be a neat idea to merge my love for Angels with my love for these sweet Matryoshka dolls.....and this Paper Doll came to life.....





In November I have an art show where I will be unveiling these to the public here in my city....and chatting about the book....so I am thrilled to share these with all of you here......This is my 16th doll in this amazing and fun series!!!

I am sharing this with all of my wonderful friends over at Paint Party Friday....a place where you can check out some amazing work.....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating!!!

See you tomorrow right back here for Sweet Saturdays!!!!

I love Russian dolls too! When in NYC I found nesting dolls painted as beauty & the beast as well as traditional. They were amazing. I love your little angels.

She precious! I just checked out your shop via your link and I think my favorite is the articulated girl with her pet pug--so cute! I love paper dolls and I love that you have made pet paper dolls. Congratulations on your up and coming unveiling of your artwork! What an exciting event to look forward. I hope you'll let us know how it goes.
Happy PPF,

love the idea of creating a "doll" that I can then use in so many different ways in my art/decor.
fantabulous!
I apologize for the last word choice - I'm sleep deprived
