☆ Paper Dolls [inspiration avenue]

Before I tell you about my paper doll, I wanted to give you a wee reminder about this months give away. As part of my year of bravery, I am giving away an original painting every month, and there is only a few days left to enter January's. So quick, pop over to this post and leave a comment to enter + and good luck!
So, how fun was this weeks Inspiration Avenue prompt Paper  Dolls? I had so much fun creating my very own paper doll.

I drew + coloured her with pro markers, and then cut + glued her onto some card for extra support. Put in some brads and voila my very own paper doll!

Bean has named her Mellia.

So after I constructed and photographed her, I decided to have a bit of fun.

You see I had all these images left over from my Life book dream page  and I thought it would be cool to have Mellia doing some stuff... like holding a teapot, sitting on a lounge that kind of thing, and then I started thinking about all the possibilities - Mellia in the faery garden, Mellia at the Koi pond, Mellia having a glass of wine, Mellia in Paris ....

Endless possibilities + so much fun in store - so keep an eye on the Mellia photo album on facebook to see what she's up to next!


  1. Kirstin,

    I love your doll and look forward to her many adventures. I hope to see more of her in the near future.

    However, your link goes to MY paper doll blog post, not yours. I look forward to others visiting and enjoying your lovely Mellia.

    1. ooops! To many pages open at once! I've fixed it now - thanks for letting me know x

  2. Hi, stopping by from Life Book. I love how you draw!

  3. I think Mellia ought to go to Paris and are you thinking of getting her a pet? Many possibilities -- Write them down. I hope you keep a journal; write all of them down in detail. I have a feeling, Kristin, that you area going to get hugh downloads of stories -- You are going to create children's books about Mellia -- just like Madeline and she's going to be a paper doll to many a big eyed little girl. Blessings Terri

  4. I love Mellia! She's amazing and I think she will have all kinds of adventures. An "inspired" idea to give her a facebook page!

  5. Mellia is just brilliant! I love that she will have her own photo album of adventures♥♥♥

  6. What a wonderful paper doll you have created in Mellia! I think you both are off to an exciting journey! Happy Travels!
