Paper Pixie

I have received a few emails and one of my bloggie friends wanted to know more about the paper pixie. I will share more pictures of the one holding the heart soon. She is almost finished. I have a little bit more to do on her. I am in the process of making a booklet with step by step instructions. I began making the booklet for myself. I make so many different types of dolls and they are all constructed differently and I wanted to have some kind of documentation of how I did it. I have already used it since making the first doll. How quickly we forget.LOL! She really is completely made out of coffee filters, even the face.
I punched out lots of flowers from wallpaper and decoupaged to the filters.
I love the tone on tone.
I made lots of little flowers to embellish with.

I am making one right now that is totally different. The coffee filters will be painted. I can't wait to see what that one will look like. It is really interesting to me to see how many ways you can change a piece simply by your choice of media. They are so much fun to make! More coming soon!

Aloha! New visitor, here. I read through your profile and you *totally* intrigue me. :) I feel like we might just share a lot in common!

I also wanted to comment on this particular post---your paper pixie is INCREDIBLE. Seriously, you have some mad skills, missy! She is beautiful and so dreamy...I'll bet it's a lot like magic in your art studio. :)

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and nice to meet you...and I'm definitely following along on your blog. :)
