PaperArtsy Challenge #5 ....OMG this is so not me, lol!

Morning everyone,

I had a play last night with something waaayyyyy out of my comfort zone, lol!  The current PaperArtsy Blog challenge is Artdolls.  Firstly I have to be honest and say it's one form of crafting that has never interested me to include in my makes but I decided to have a go (such as it is ;D) and as I was going out of my comfort zone with topic I also decided to go the whole hog and use a mish mash of bright colours.  I was actually trying to make myself use clashing colours but somehow, I don't really think I succeeded there, lol!  This challenge, Darcy did a great intro post over on the blog on Sunday and the inspiration has already kicked off with a quirky doll from Gabrielle Price on Monday.

I used a size 10 tag, Lynne Perella stamps, Fresco Finish paints, Distress Inks, stencils and an arm and legs cut from a fashion catalogue and this is what I came up with as an entry to the challenge.

It's absolutely hammering down with rain this morning so it's taken some of the brightness from the colours when I added light to the pics.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.....  I'm off to link up and then, wouldn't you know it, I'm off to the hairdresser' the rain!

You've done a grand job here even if it is outside your comfort zone - great work. Relentless rain and wind here all day, hope your hairdo didn't suffer too much.
