Welcome to Day 15...

Now for our exciting news! Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.
 has a new line of Paper Dolls! For 18 days we will feature the new Paper Doll Sets on the MFP Blog ( and on

Some of the projects will feature tutorials, too! You will be surprised and delighted by the designers’ projects. From traditional paper dolls to scrapbook pages to creative tags and cards, the ideas are endless! Be sure to visit each day to see a new and beautiful paper doll project.

Today is my turn to share a project 
using the New Paper Doll images.
I have chosen a mixed media hanger to show you but
I  have also used the whole set stamping some on dp
 and coloring others for my granddaughter.
This new set has so many fun possibilities!! I hope that you have 
stopped by each day to see all of the fabulous creations 
my teammates have come up with!!
 You will be impressed with the variety of ideas 

First I stamped my doll,colored and cut her out. Next I
  stamped her outfit on a piece of dp,
 and used that for my color theme.After preparing
 my canvas I added lots of texture with stencils and paste.
 Then began adding color with dyes and paints. The 
chipboard gears are colored 
and textured adding the vintage button centers. The flowers
 were also cut with Spellbinders and some 
scrunched leaves added. So you can see she doesn't
just have to be used as a Paper Doll.

Even though my project is the mixed media piece I thought I
would show you a few of the ones I have made up for my granddaughter
They are versatile, I cut sleeves and legs off to make different outfits..
 You dont see paper dolls much anymore, thought this would be a fun mom
and daughter time together. I actually
 made another doll just havent colored and cut her out yet.

Such a fabulous piece of art Davi ... Your background is wonderful and my, those dolls take me back ... My grandmother used to collect them all for me from a magazine when I was little and I could play for hours dressing them!
