A Prima Doll

I'm back again and it's only 10.30am, I had a bit of a tidy up yesterday as there was so much stuff on my desk I didn't have room to craft, while I was busy sorting I came across some small bits of paper that came from a Crafty Individuals pad, these were quite small and I was going to bin them when I realised that I had a Prima Doll stamp as yet unused and I bought it at Port Sunlight so she has been with me long enough. I decided that I could use my snippets of paper to do a bit of paper piecing so this morning I have had a little play.
I painted a tag with some Paper Artsy Guacamole coloured paint and then used some texture gel through a stencil, if I had used my brain I could have done it the other way around and then wouldn't have had to repaint over the design. Once it was repainted I used a small amount of Moon Light paint to add a bit of contrast, I wanted to use some stamps so went on the hunt for something suitable and found a corner flourish and a few other things so stamped them randomly.  I then used some Treasure Gold to highlight the pattern, this time I used Aquamarine and Olive Bronze, I also found some buttons and charms which got the Treasure Gold treatment and this is the result.
When I coloured her in I decided to give her lilac/purple tones for her hair as I thought this went with the colours in the bits of paper.  I am quite pleased with her as this is something I don't do a lot of but will have to keep practising as I can only get better.

I'm entering this by the skin of my teeth into the Pixie's Crafty Workshop challenge which is to use snippets.


  1. Loving everything about this jenny, right up my street.

  2. I love this Jenny, I keep looking at these stamps but can't make up my mind if I would used it enough to warrent buying it. Think I might just have to though after seeing this.

  3. Welcome to the Playground Jenny! Be warned, the little scallywags might be fighting you for this lovely doll - great colouring too!

    Hope you came back to play again, hugs, Di xx

  4. This is really lovely Jenny - great effects. I love paper piecing and it is nice to use up all those little bits too.

  5. Wonderful use of your snippets. The paper piecing looks fabulous on her and your painting and stenciling really paid off.

  6. Sweet!
    Are you coming to play on the swings in the Snippets Playground now?

    Hugs, Sarn x

  7. Hi,
    welcome to the snippets playground with this very lovely card.
    I do hope we see you every week, as your creations are super.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Oh keep doing it Jenny. Your tag is gorgeous and I'm think I'm falling for those Prima stamps. Showed them to Terrie (in a magazine) yesterday and think she's gonna get them. Pity we live so far apart.
