This page was created from a bonus lesson in LB given by Jill K. Berry. Jill created a lovely string of paper doll girls. I tried creating my girls that way but was having a hard time painting their little faces. I came across a page in Jane Davenport’s Beautiful Faces book where she had created paper dolls using vintage papers and book pages. I decided to use her technique and put the dolls directly on a journal page. Each doll represents a woman in my family. I wanted to capture a bit about each one of them in the page. For my mom, I created her head out of a vintage accounting journal since she used to be a bookkeeper. She was also an excellent cook. Her dress was made with one of her handwritten recipes. The next woman represents my sister, also a bookkeeper. For the next three dresses, I used portions of pages from vintage children’s books. My sister loves all things beachy, my daughter is a baker and food blogger and my niece is a daycare teacher. Here they are with some paint added and before I finished them off with some words and doodling.
