Paper Dolls

I enjoy making collages and paper dolls, and this is my latest. It was originally going to be a self-portrait (hence the stringy hairdo…), but as I got working on the face I liked what I had and lost the desire to make it look like myself. I’m happy with the results, if I do say so myself.

This was made with scissors alone, because I happen to like the effect. I typically don’t draw these before cutting– This may sound a little silly, but since Disney and other big companies have started making dimensional stickers for scrapbook supplies, I feel some compunction to put that added personal touch to my collaged artwork. I think it makes them look less like something that came out of a machine. (Not that I don’t think those things are cute, just a different and less soulful? style.)

Anyhow, hope you like it!
