As a little girl, I was always fascinated by paper dolls. It pains me to see so many children glued to their iPads… and not creating imaginative worlds all their own. Maybe it’s an old way of thinking, but I used to spend hours and hours creating stories and scenarios with my paper dolls… or even the most mundane things, like pebbles and sticks on a bed of moss (maybe that’s a country thing). I think much of those worlds I created as a child have stuck with me, and have allowed me to open my imagination today.
Lately I’ve been creating these paper doll marionette-style dancers (inspired by this one)… and I’m loving how they are turning out! I’m using brads to connect all the joints and make them moveable. I’ve got a few ideas of what to do with them… and I can’t wait to share it. What do you think of them, these magical creatures!?
