As my post title says... you are NEVER to old to play with dolls. Several weeks back I saw a video featuring the Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamp and Die combos and I fell in LOVE. I looked online, but found them sold out. I put myself on a waiting list at Simon Say Stamps and a couple of weeks ago I got my doll. I purchased the Halie doll, because of dress.
Yesterday, I finally had the time and energy (it's been a bad week full of sinus headaches) to sit and play with my new doll stamp and die set. I created two layouts (more on those later) and four dolls. Here are my babies:
Starting from left to right...
Halie 1 has a pattern paper dress and I gave her "tights", but coloring her legs w/a green copic that matched the pattern paper.
Halie 2 has a pattern paper dress, but what you can't see on this picture is that I separated the bottom part of the dress and inserted a couple of foam squares for dimensional layers. I also colored the bottom part w/a gray copic that matched the pattern paper.
Halie 3 has the same pattern paper dress as Halie 1, but I cut off the flares of the dress die cut to get a different shaped dress. I colored the bottom part of the dress w/a green copic that matched the pattern paper and added a large (for her) bow stamp to the front of the dress. I made a green colored t-shirt, by tracing her upper body onto a white piece of paper, which I hand cut and colored w/the same green copic. Halie 3 also got a new hair do... I used the bangs die cut as intended and made my own pixie cut back hair piece.
Halie 4 has a pattern paper dress and white crop pants I made by tracing her legs onto a white piece of paper.
I LOVE how all four of my Halies turned out. They each have their own "look". And I love how super easy it was to make extra stuff for them, like the hair, the t-shirt and crop pants. Here's another look at them:
Until next time...
