One of the best parts of One World, One heart for me was meeting new friends and discovering some amazing art and the blogs that go with it along the way. I've always been intrigued with altered art and constantly find myself compelled to use that venue for artistic exploration. So, it's not surprising that a lot of the artists and their blogs that captured my attention were focused on mixed media. Lately, I'm seeing a LOT of paper dolls, and I LOVE what I'm seeing. I want to make some to accompany my altered books......this is what's been niggling in the back of my mind the last few days-and my muse is getting louder and louder in her emphasis that I NEED to make a paper doll Or two, or even three, but definitely at least one. I've told her that I don't really have time right now- I'm supposed to be getting ready for a show in six weeks, she doesn't care......
