the challenge at mixed media monday was to make a paper doll. of course i had to use fantastiques, the best paper dolls in the world! i covered the back of a wooden doorhanger with black frost fabric paper and painted the edges black. then i used my new favorite thing, an acrylic paint dabber in gold, to dab a distressed textured surface on the front. for the angel's torso, i used a little purse diecut that was the perfect shape for a gown and halo. the head and arms move on brads, and i embellished her gown with a glitter pen and rhinestones. i used a gold leafing pen on the halo and the border of the quote. this was so much fun to make!
