Discover some wonderful artists and share your art with Paper Saturdays.

Today I have some more fun paper dolls for you. If you are a Facebook or Instagram friend of mine you will have noticed lots of paper dolls appearing in your feeds. I have set myself the challenge to make a personalised doll a day. I have fallen behind a little because it is much more work then I had anticipated.

It has been an amazing learning curve and my in-box if still overflowing with willing models.Some of you are Paper Saturday followers and I will draw you all when I have enough material to work from. Now normally people send me photos of whom they want to become a paper doll but Fran from Paper Tripp send me photo of a drawing of herself. Her drawing is top left.

I found this doll in particular very difficult to do because drawing from a drawing go hand in hand with expecting a lot from myself. Drawing from a real face gives me more freedom. It helps me to give that doll a extra bit of personal touch too but I don't think I did too bad with Fran' s doll. What do you think?


At the end of my Challenge all dolls will be printed out and glued on 450grm card. I will also personally cut and assemble the doll. All dolls from this challenge will be made availble for you to buy at a very reasonable price. I promise you it will only be a very small amount just to cover my costs. I am hoping this will be some time during October and November.

Next on my list is Clare from ClareWillcocks. I still have a bit of work to do on her but I promise you she will be finished tomorrow and I will post more then. More willing particpants on my list are going to be on show during the week so stay posted.
