Imagination is power.
Therefore, be sure to have
A good and elevating imagination.
Victoria from Amazing Character Constructions screams I am unique styling her funky butterfly corset and chocolate die cut crinloin skirt. I love there are no fashion rules when creating art paper dolls, they are all one of a kind creations.
They never get old and are timeless.
Listen to your imagination...

When you are creating it feels so magical, you never know what your imagination will inspire.
Maybe an art paper doll fairy "Diva with attitude" will arrive to wave her tiny wand...........
Be careful not to close your eyes...as she sprinkles her artful magic fairy dust.Dreams do come true.
I had a blast creating this art on canvas with Karen Ellis at The Art House Studio today.
So positive to spread your art wings in a new directions.

Mysterious Magic was about to discover a curious adventure of a whole new creative world...what artful direction a waits her in the dreamy future. Where will her big imagination run away to...?
The sky is the colour of a peacock tail ...
Creating with these Character Constructions mermaid stamps is a wonderfully mad. My theme was all about your unique imagination and gathering your artful thoughts. It is all about the frame of mind you are in and what comes together before you on your page.
It is like Magic...
"It is like a strange light no bigger than your fist, darting about the room like a living thing".

Creative change takes compassion, patience, passion perseverance and more perseverance. ~ Jill Badonsky
I truly enjoy the quiet moments at night sitting at my desk where I escape to a magic place of creativity in my mind. I combined Character Constructions and Tumble Fish Studio to create this art paper doll. My goal of this journal page was to include vintage elements as well bold funky feeling. I wanted turquoise to really jump out in my choice of colours. I can never get enough of this wonderful ocean colour, my favorite.
The theme of this positive journal page was to express your inner Muse and explore your magical artful journey.

I want to follow my big dreams but what direction will they take me ? I am ready to spread my wing and fly. I just need a little more time to work on my fabulous daydreams...
Dreaming, dreaming and more dreaming this is me.
As you can proberly guess the theme of this journal page was all about following your big dreams. I just adore this dreamy Tumble Fish Studio Diva face image. Her eyes are so soulful turquoise and tell such a tender story. I stamped the Character Constructions arms and legs onto patterned paper that would give a nice contrast to my background. I wanted to add soft colours so they would not be the focus of my story page. When I look at this journal page she speaks to me about having true vision in life.
What thoughts does she share with you ?

Dream a little dream.
The legend of the Mermaid is so magical and one of my favorite fantasy creature's.
I enjoyed creating this Character Constructions Mermaid using shades of hot pink, red and orange.
If you look very closely at her funky eye brows she is styling hot pink.
What a Fashion Palooza !!!

This journal timepage theme was created to be very full of color and whimsical. I had a blast creating with my newly purchased Tumble Fish Studio collage sheets.
(I LOVE THE DIVA'S , OH TO BE A TRUE DIVA.LOL)
The Character Constructions tree added my focus earthly message, what thoughts come to mind when you view this unusual funky tree ? hmmm Maybe be aware of the ....
My big imagination was feeling really positive creating this page.
Magical moments creating art are timeless.

I believe when you are creating art paper dolls, your eyes should really be a strong focus. I really tired to add lots of feeling to her violet eyes, I adore big long lashes.
The unique words were such fun to create with , they are from "amazing" http://www.deviantscrap.com
More to come ...Yes I put in an order. LOL
The Tumble Fish Studio "Diva's" are so rocking awesome.
If you have not tired the new Character Constructions die cuts, they make art dolls that much more fun. I used the die cuts legs and created my own pattern on the legs. I cut them out on my big shot machine using red cardstock.I had a artful time using my imagination full of color for her styling funky boots look.

She flutters her magical fairy wings spreading positive fairy dust...styling her Character Constructions funky off the shoulder corset & creative red boots.
Keep watching for the sprinkle of positive glowing glitter coming your way.
Everyone could use a little positive fairy dust now and then.

I asked myself, why would grown women like myself want to play with paper dolls and to answered, to nurture their inner child. ~ Catherine Moore
The theme for this months Doll-a-mania workshop at Bizzy B's was "Spread Your Wings And Let Your Imagination Fly".
I have to be honest when this workshop was completed I felt a little sad that it was over. I had enjoy all the special shared moments and I will treasure them always.
I can't wait till the next workshop in June, it will be here before we know it. All I can say is creating Character Constructions art dolls rock.
I wanted to mention a big thank you, to my sweet friend Cynthia for the lovely Doll-a-mania workshop blog posting.
You inspire me and make me want to try harder...

Now you are proberly trying to guess, why have I created all these little tiny Character Contructions matching dresses ? hmmm...
Perhaps some tiny fairy folk want to get a whole lot of styling going on and adore purple?
Ok the answer is they are name tags, I have created for my upcoming April 2 Doll-a-mania workshop at Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap in Toronto.

Long lashes rule...
Orange and pink are the spotlight of colours this year.
Styling my natural animal print is all the current fashion going on.
It is so magical creating art paper dolls, the possibilities are endless. If you have Character Constructions art doll body parts the fun begins.
I did adjust the CC stamped hands and created kitty paws. I like when creating an animal art doll for it to be kinda believable. (you get my drift, LOL)
I still like the art doll to have that playful whimsical feeling,for example long human eyes lashes . Even though not many cats have eyes lashes like these , except my version of this Fashion Palooza.
She was so much fun to create and there will be more of these "Kitty Diva's" in my creative future.

I feel very adventurous.
There are so many doors to be opened, I am not afraid to look behind them.
~ Elizabeth Taylor
The inspiration for this art doll was a reflection of inner growth.
When one door closes another one opens, I truly believe in this positive quote of life.
