Mixed Media Monday - Child's Play


"Child's Play".... this conjures up an image of long, lazy days sitting on the floor of my bedroom surrounded by dolls, especially paper dolls. I was crazy for them and saved my hard-earned money so that I could buy more. I think I even had the Partridge Family! My only regret is that I didn't keep them but I do have fun every once in a while creating the joys of playing with paper dolls in my artwork. These two round robin journals are prime examples of this and are my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
I've made the draw for my upside down journals and will be announcing the winners' names a little later today. Sorry to be a bit late doing so.

Oh I just love these pages! They are so playful and fun! Playing paper dolls was one of my favorite things to do when I was little. My friend and I used to set up elaborate paper doll house under the dining room table and play with all our paper dolls! Loved the paper doll accessories--the extras that floated around the pages--like brushes and mirrors etc!
