This month, one of my projects at Altered Art Swap is an 8"x8" tip in using a French-inspired "Life is Beautiful" theme in sepia tones. I started out with a paper background mounted on 140# watercolor paper and then used a lovely rubber stamp and distressed ink to give it a vintage feel. Then it was "create away"!
I planned to make a bookmark to put in the library card pocket but as usual, a doll crept her way out and next thing I knew, I had made a beautiful French ballerina instead. I have to admit that I am very pleased with the results. Those Dolls just always sneak into my art, don't they? I wonder how many more are inside? :)
