Hi, guys! Hope all is well! Today I am sharing a fun piece I made last night. I made a tag using a Prima paper doll. I decided to make a mixed media tag for myself after seeing a lot of them being made. Once I started working on the doll I remembered how much I loved playing with paper dolls as a little girl. I remember being able to sit for hours and dress them up over and over. Talk about a very low tech toy! But oh, the fun!
I was able to incorporate my love for paper dolls with Distress Ink and other goodies to create this tag. The tag is from the Prima Tag Pad, and I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it an aged look. The doll was stamped on Tim Holtz French Industrial paper. I paper pieced the clothing and headband with papers by Lily Bee. The sentiment is by Dyan Reaveley and I thought it was perfect for a tag with a young girl on it.
One thing I love about making mixed media pieces is that I can go through my stash and use my goodies. On this tag, I decided to use some dried flowers I was gifted by a friend. She picked them up on vacation in Italy! I kept "saving" them but decided this was the perfect piece to use them on. My friend Chaitali sent me the lovely lace trim!
This was so much fun for me to make. I bought 4 Prima Dolls, so I can't wait to make some more of these!
Have a great day! Hope you find some time in your day to do something you love!
