ALTERED PAGES JUNE CHALLENGE "BABY DOLLS"

It is time again for the Altered Pages Monthly Challenge!!!  This month the theme is "Baby Dolls".  I found it to be an interesting challenge and to be honest I wasn't sure what to make!  But, I got this awesome collage sheet "Vintage Baby Dolls" and some Glitz Design paper (both available at the Altered Pages Store) and an idea was born!

I had this black frame and I used the Glitz paper over cotton balls for the base,  I then spent (what felt like days) a while cutting out all the collage pieces, like the clothes, shoes and the doll.  I used pins to attach the doll to the background and I attached the clothes to little hangers from 7 Gypsies. The hangers are hanging from a piece of rope I tied a the ends and glued onto the background.  The final piece is a button die cut attached with a pin.

I hope you will join us this month!  All the rules are on the Challenge Blog (link above).  AND, after the 15th you can vote for your favorite Design Team piece!!  Then, the winner gets a prize and a DT member too!  How cool is that??

  2. How lovely Daniella! I used to have lots of paper dolls to play with and dress. I don't think many children would play with them now. perhaps they're really for us older children! xx
