Hello! Happy April! Spring is definitely here and we've been having a lot of April showers to get ready for those May flowers!

With Spring in the air - I am continuing my Julie Nutting Doll craze! I'm having so much fun creating with these dolls! They sure bring me back to my childhood when I used to play with paper dolls. I loved my Fashion Plates! Do you remember those? Well, these dolls are just as fun, even if they take a little more time to create.

Here are two of my most recent dolls. The first one is  based on the Mood Board for Prima's March PPP Challenge. If you'll remember my last post, I created an altered journal cover for the challenge. The Mood Board used shades of pinks and greens. I used Julie's Doll Steffi for this one. I love how she turned out! For my second doll, I used Keira for a doll tag swap. Both tags make me thing of Spring with their soft colors and flower embellishments. I hope you like them as much as I do! Thank you for taking a look at my creations!

Altered Mixed Media Journal Cover

I haven't made a mixed media project in quite a while. I saw that Prima was having a PPP (Prima Product Picks) Challenge for March.  So, I decided to get back into mixed media art by altering a journal cover. I used Prima's Mood Board for inspiration. I raided my Flying Unicorn kits for Prima products and this is what I created. I hope you like it!

Going Doll Crazy!

I've been having quite a few good days lately, so I have been playing with my new Julie Nutting Dolls. They remind me of playing with paper dolls as a child and surprisingly, I'm having a lot of fun creating them! Here are a few that I've made.

Artist Trading Cards - Butterflies Make Me Smile

I haven't updated my blog since December, due to my health. I have been lucky to have some really good days lately and wanted to share some of my recent work. Here are a few ATCs that I have made recently, that I've titled "Butterflies Make Me Smile." I have a series in Blue/Green and in Purple/Pink. I hope you like them!
