ever since i was little, i have loved paperdolls....now there are so many choices to use them in altered art....with computer designers making clip art, every day is christmas...i love to get an image, cut it out and embellish it......so relaxing!

Nellie Olsen Dresses....

why is it that the china porcelain dolls always have horrible prairie nellie olsen dresses? most of the time they look like they were haphazzardly thrown on to them! anyway, when i adopt these dolls for a make over...the first thing that goes is the dress and the ugly pantaloons....and then the curly hair...oh and then the eyelashes........soooo here is a girl i am working on for halloween.......enjoy!

altered art dolls

my latest musing is the creation of altered art dolls.....i love to buy dolls at the thrift store that no one wants... and then alter them to my liking.....with halloween around the corner, i madeover a doll for a swap....the original doll had long curly hair which i promptly cut, i painted her lips black and glazed her face...with a new witch hat, dress and banner, she has a new life!!
