I have a post today featuring one of the Julie Nutting doll stamps. This is the page I created for February. The doll's name is Valentina.
I love her flirty dress! I guess I was thinking a lot about spring coming and it seems to be reflected in this page. I chose a pretty sky blue pattern paper for the background and used some vanilla paper for the stamped hills.
Love, love, love her dress! I paper pieced it using two papers that had soft colors. This is a somewhat tedious process. The dress is stamped on two different papers and then cut with sharp scissors. I glued the polka dot paper over the stamped doll and then glued the plaid paper on top of that. I added tiny pearls down the front.
Her hat was created the same way. The small polka dot paper is glued over the plaid paper hat cut out. A slit is cut so it can fit over her head.
I stamped tiny stars, some with trails, some with faces, in gray ink to create subtle movement to the background. The sentiment I chose reflects my feeling for EVERYONE I love.
"Valentina's" friend is the perfect complement to the prim and proper doll page. As always, I stamped the both doll images on tiny text paper. I love the way this looks.
All of my doll pages are 6" x 9", the perfect size to fit into an album when I'm finished. I need to hurry up and do March and April so I can catch up. Check back soon!
