Paper Whimsy Itty Bitty Book Swap

When Paper Whimsy announced an Itty Bitty Book swap with a Garden Girl theme I am all in. Here is my Garden Girl with her flower "headdress" and her pet butterfly. I believe the books have been created and are in the mail. It is so fun to get a package delivered with wonderful little pieces of art from a number of artists from around the Country. I can't wait to receive mine!

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes

I discovered the fun of creating faux cupcakes and can't stop! Here is my first tray full. The "cake" is made of plaster and the "icing" is made with molding clay. Add a little paint and alot of glitter (everything's better with glitter!), and voila, you have beautiful little cupcakes that look too good to eat and definitely shouldn't be consumed!

Marie Antoinette

I had a blast creating this paper doll. My degree in fashion merchandising comes into play with paper! The dress is creating by layering many types of paper. The hair, my favorite part, is made with small wads of music paper.
