"Don't Be Afraid to Sparkle" Art Journal- page 2

This is page 2 (the right hand side) of the double page spread in my art journal.  The steps used to decorate this page were done at the same time as page one. (previous post)   The collage definition was stamped in the inner fold of the page, from a stamp set purchased years ago from A Stamp in the Hand.  The Prima Doll Stamp, was stamped on Copic Marker paper and then cut out. Brads attached the legs to the body making them movable. The entire paper doll was attached to the art journal page with double stick Velcro, so the doll could be removed and played with and re-dressed, and then re-attached to the page for storage.

The same technique  would  be fun to use on a birthday card, with the removable paper doll, and an envelope attached to the back of the card to hold extra clothes for the doll.

I hope those that have visited today will check out the rest of our Prima Doll Blog Hop during the month of August for more ideas on how to use these wonderful stamps.
