Princess Aurora

Back in December I shared with you a page I created using the Julie Nutting paper doll stamps.  They each have a name and are faceless.  If you'd like to read my post about the Phoebe page, please click HERE.  Today I'm sharing the page I made for January.  The doll's name is Aurora.


I'm creating each page on 6" x 9" canvas paper.  This gives me the liberty of using whatever kind of "art" I want for the background.  On this page I started with some light wood grain paper.  After adding a couple of "snow hills" I was ready to work on the doll.


I stamped her on paper with a light text print.  I then stamped her again on a pretty purple paper with a watery look.  I went over the folds of her dress with a dark purple marker and then added tiny rhinestones to just the upper portion.  I finished the dress with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.  It's difficult to see all the detail in the photo but it's full of sparkle.  I colored her hair a dramatic black and covered her crown with silver glitter.  Her black jewel necklace and bracelet are separate accessories you can purchase to enhance the dolls.


I decided I wanted to use a snow family to keep her company so I used a Stampin' Up! one I had.  I also stamped them on text print paper and colored them to match.  The quote is from a very old stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I love this quote and it reflects how I feel about my special friends.


Please notice the delicate snowflakes in the background.  I stamped and embossed them with white powder and added rhinestones to a few.  They give the page some added depth and tie the whole scene together.


So, Princess Aurora is finished and will go into the album I'm putting together with all the pages.  I have already finished my February doll page so you will have to come back to see who the mystery lady is.

  1. This card is so beautiful. I love the detail, she looks like a snow princess. But I thought you had forgotten what cold looks like. Ha!
