"The day the LORD created hope
was probably the same day He created Spring."
Hi Friends! I had so much fun entering the challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog back a few months ago that I decided to enter again. Their theme for this week is "Spring is in Full Bloom" .
For this project, I decided to make an articulated paper doll. As a child, I loved creating my own dolls out of discarded gift boxes. I still have several of them! For this beauty, I used papers from Craft Consortium's "Tell the Bees" collection and a few other random sheets of pattern paper I had on hand.
This doll measures about 11" tall from head to toe. Her bodice was created from some fabric flower trim I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. The flowers in her hair, on her wrists, and in her gown were all "fussy cut" to add dimension to the piece. I used some pretty vintage lace that was gifted to me years ago by a friend.
Both her arms and her skirt extend out. Her skirt reveals a Springtime quote.
In our neck of the woods, Spring truly is exploding with LIFE!
I hope you enjoyed this project. If you're interested in participating in the challenge, hop on over to the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog for more details.
