Paper Doll Collaberation Project Favorite Seires

This months theme was Favorite Novels.  I decided to do Favorite series instead.  Most of the books I read are classic, sci-fi and horror.  I chose to draw Ozma of Oz from the Oz series by L Frank Baum.  I did not read all of the Oz books but read up to the 6th book "Emerald City of Oz".  I attempted to read the next book "Patchwork Girl of Oz" but the didn't get through it.  The second outfit is a Hogwarts uniform from the famous Harry Potter series by JK Rowling.

Wedding Cards

a Doehla Fine Arts Card Made in USA

Please Come! Greetings Inc L331 Made in USA

I've been collecting vintage wedding cards in hopes of displaying or using them somehow in my own wedding.  Maybe place mats? Or table numbers?  Or banners?  I love the old artwork, especially brides and grooms.  I don't care if the cards have been signed, as long as the card is in good condition with nice colors and no rips or tears.  I've also collected some anniversary and wedding shower cards that fit the bridal theme.

Easter Paper doll

I'll admit, this year I am lazy.  above is a single page Easter doll designed by me.  I borrowed the outfits from a old Betsy McCall paper doll and edited them.  Colored with colored pencil on top and black and white lines on bottom.  Name?  What should she be named?  Hope everyone has a Happy Easter.

Mr. and Mrs. Troll

Here are two magazine pages from Children's Playmate Magazine dated 07 1939.  The art is by Fern Bisel Peat.  Mr and Mrs Troll look pretty cute for trolls.  The lady has 3 outfits with two hats. The man has 3 outfits, a jacket and 3 hats along with a neckerchief/scarf.  I scanned the art of one of the back of the pages, which features a lovely illustration also by Fern Bisel Peat
