who doesn't love a paper doll ?


I love to color the Phee Mcfaddlell's  coloring book
pages ... this is one of the puppet pages
                                                                          

    I love to Color  !  I find it relaxing  and after the local flooding the disaster in Japan and the loss of a friend to cancer this weekend .... I needed some Color therapy  .
   A few years ago I was searching the Internet looking for some coloring book pages to print out for my little friend Sierra ,and through my search I found http://www.pheemcfaddell.com/  she has many  coloring book pages  to print out and some pages that have puppets to color and assemble... I have fallen in LOVE with them !
   This is the first time I made the puppets . I printed them out on card stock ,colored them with prismacolor pencils .cut them out  and adhered them to heavy weight card stock with an acid free glue stick . Then I cut them out again  leaving a little of the black card stock around the edges , I think it made the colors POP ...I added gems and Stickleys glitter glue before assembling them I used some foam dots to attach the legs and wings to the body giving them some dimension  .it was a fun and relaxing project . Here are the two I finished this weekend.

My Favorite color is Orange ! I wish you could see
all the sparkly glitter and gems .but my camera just
doesn't get the glitter good .
