Jenny's Paper Dolls journal has a lovely vintage feel, so I wanted to do a spread that tied into this.
Paper dolls in art journalling are a bit foreign to me, so I didn't really know what to do. But I have a pic of my mum and her brother from probably the early 50s, when mum would have been around 7 or 8. I've always loved this photo, and have drawn it before, so thought it would suit this theme!
As usual I forgot to take progress pics... 😖 I drew the figures of Pam and George on brown kraft card - great stuff, thick enough to cut out, but not too thick. I then inked them in and cut them out.
I then used heaps of vintage look scrapbook papers from my stash, as a base for both pages. I remembered that I had this great leaf stencil and mask set from Dina Wakley - still unopened! - so played around with acrylic paints. The leaves were outlined with brown Pitt pen.
