Green Paper March Collage Challenge
The first week of each month Mary Green of Green Paper runs a collage challenge and I had a chance to play along this time because I had a fun idea to try. With the challenge you have to use at least a portion of each of three images she provides. You can see the images on her blog post HERE. I had the idea to make a dress form doll using a hand cut dress form out of chipboard painted with raw umber paint. The first image of the girl was easy to use. From the second image, I cut the strips of music into kind of a flower petal shape and added them to a few more strips of music and patterned paper and lace to create her skirt. The third image was trickier....it had a teeny tiny pink flower that I cut out and used with a scrap of patterned paper and lace for a hair adornment.
The close up of the skirt shows all the various petals given an edge inking with distress ink and a little flip of a curl for more dimension. Adding things bit by bit to build my doll sure was a lot of fun!
