This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge is “Fashion.” Never being fashionable, I wasn’t certain what to do. But then I remembered one of the exercises in one of my favorite books, Mixed Mania, by Debbi Crane and Cheryl Prater. The exercise suggests using paper, fabric or other scraps to dress a paper doll.¬† I had avoided this one because I am not a “doll” person. However, it seemed a perfect way to meet the challenge.

I dressed my doll in paper from a Hancock’s of Paducah fabric catalog, and I placed her on a background I had been playing with. It’s a wee bit darker than I wanted, and I really wasn’t sure how to dress her feet, so she’s barefoot. but I think she looks happy in her environment, and happily proclaims, “look at me!”

Look at me!
