new paper dolls




 I went through all the patterned cardstock that has been kicking around for too long, cutting the big pieces into bodies with legs and the small pieces into arms. Then I realized the skull from my vanitas invite is a good size, so I printed off a whole bunch and cut them out too. I used two-sided tape to stick them together. Lots of fun!









 I've mailed most of them out, including a set of twenty for Circulaire 132.

~ tiny leaf tags ~

 After seeing my little leaves, a neighbour asked if I could make her a whole lot of tiny leaves to use as price tags. She creates amazing macramé plant holders (I'll take photos this summer).

 I used my styro-print technique, this time carving three leaves to make printing easier and expedient. Once the prints dried, I trimmed them, approx. ¾" x 1½", then used a large needle to make a hole and thread the hemp twine through. Love the earthy colours.

··☽ The Flower Moon ☾··



 The full moon in May just past, so it's a good time to plant gardens,
also known as The Flower Moon.






 I got inspired to make this styro-print by the Free People Blog.

~ little leaves ~






 Another little styro-print; the leaf measures only 1¼" x 2¾".
I played with different colours of paint, but I love the black on colourful paper.
