Paperdoll Calendars are Ready!



Here they are! My Paperdoll 2007 Calendars.
They were printed on high quality matte paper with archival inks so they are sutible for framing later if you like them that much, or you could cut them out and make new outfits for them as well. They are for sale now at the shop! The dates were kept at the bottom so the prints were in tact for later - the rough edges show the painting lines which i liked. I used the classic typeface "Venitian" as it speaks to the age of the papers.
This was a fun project for me this year. Paperdolls have always been a part of my life - from ones we made long ago as children - to enjoying them with my daughters when they were young. The ones we always loved best were the ones we made up ourselves. So here are my twelve ladies, ready to play in 2007!

Susan these are so awesome!!!
You should be proud of yourself!

I hope you do it again next year and sell them at justBe...


I was thinking of you today because my sister leaves for Germany for business tomorrow. I forgot where she is going exactly. She works for BASF so I guess where ever their corporate office is.

I keep meaning to ask you...does artstream have a badge?

I love looking at each and every ONE !

EAch one is so expressive

I couldn't pick a favorite out of the bunch if I tried.

How can you make that many girls so different yet alike with such character?

Well because you are GOOD that is why !
