Is she bald or is that Wisteria on her head?

Is this not the most exquisitely decadent paper hair ever to grace the head of a paper art doll anywhere in the world? Actually her faux hair is hand made wisteria that I put together leaf by leaf, vine by vine several years ago and never used . . . until now. This of course is not the final "do" but you get the idea where I am headed with it. I see so much possibility in this paper art doll bust that I find it difficult to contain my excitement about it. You've seen sculpted busts made of papier mache, polymer clay and what not but have you ever seen one made out of paper?


This Pink Saturday, the Artful Paper Doll gives you a peek at this work in progress. Creating an art doll bust like this complete with rooted paper hair is just one of the many techniques you will learn for creating your own artful paper doll in my latest tutorial, {Paper Doll • ology}. I've got 8 spots left at the discounted price of $50. What can you do with a paper art doll bust if given the opportunity? Why not find out!

Oh she is so beautiful. I just love her. Her hair or whisteria whichever the mind can see, is so pretty. I have blue eyes so I was really drawn to her eyes. I also love the little rose touch on her dress. So imaginative. Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday! Please stop by and say hi. Country hugs, Sherry
