Yesterday I was thinking I wouldn't have an entry
for this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue.
I adored the theme of paper dolls and thought it would be a fun challenge.
The execution proved more problematic than the idea!
I started 2 different entries. Not happy with either.
It was harder than I thought it would be! Just not my thing, I thought.
I was expecting to have the best time doing this.
Instead I was stressing over it...
So, today I made myself complete both.
I don't hate either one as much as I thought I did,
and I'm glad they are finished!
The first one...
Her name is Apolline, a high wire artist at the circus.
When she's not high above the crowd in the big top, she
loves shopping for everything pink! Occasionally
she will include something light green or another pale color.
She loves walking her puppy, Amaroo,
and is searching for the perfect pet bird
for the lovely vintage cage she found today.
For the second one, I fell back on some digital creations
that I mostly had already done, but added some new dresses and colors:
I was inspired by the yummy sixties fashions in Mad Men.
I confess I have never watched Mad Men, but I looked at the pictures!
It's on my to-do list to watch an episode.
Pop over to Inspiration Avenue Sunday afternoon
(if you are in the US eastern time zone,
or adjust accordingly for your location!)
The entries will be displayed in the Gallery of Paper Dolls :)
