I spent a little time cleaning my art room this weekend and was inspired to get into a little hand crafting with what was laying around. I made this newsprint paper doll ( after seeing a photo of an inspirational piece in Somerset Workshop) which was buried under stacks of paper! I cut out the doll's body and face ( from Dover books) crumpled newspaper for her dress, added black roses and straw marigolds and cut out boots, hat and star embellishments from Halloween inspired artist paper. The little broom was an ornament of mine and placed her on some fun artist paper . This is my entry for the Three Muses this week where the theme is " The Printed Word".
