Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Paper Dolls

At Inspiration Avenue this week the challenge is
Paper Dolls

What little girl hasn't played with paper dolls.   Just because you have grown up
doesn't mean that you have to stop.    I've just begun to explore again the
magic of paper dolls.   These days they tend to be more artful than playful.

This was sent for an art doll swap.  My inspiration came
from older issue of Somerset Studio magazine.  

This one is digitally created.   I love the trim for her bodice.
It's trim that I cropped from a shabby chic lamp photo.  In fact,
 every thing that I used for this piece is just that.....a little piece
cropped here and there from a whole photo.    I love the soft colors.

Thanks for stopping by and playing paper dolls with me today.

I'm getting some strange emails from you. Has your account been hacked or do you have a virus?
