So what do you say?  Ready for some fun??
 
Welcome to week 2 of our Prima Paper Doll Blog Hop
(missed week one?..there is still time... go here)
As mentioned, our theme is "Seasons"
and this week it is "Summer".
 
For my summer project I chose to create a canvas...
 
 
I mixed two shades of blue paint and spritzed them with stamp cleaner....
it gave a "washed" look to the colors....
I used a star negative for a stencil and some bubble wrap for my background...
Sand paper was used at the bottom to achieve a "sandy" beach....
I mod podged a piece of paper onto the canvas, added a sailboat
I stamped with a Unity stamp, and some rub on's...
the doll herself was stamped on Prima ledger paper,
I rubbed some Pebbles cream chalks for her skin tones...
her dress was paper pieced......
 
 
glitter was added here and there for some sparkle...
 
To me, summer also makes me think of all the county fairs....
 
I had to make a tag and went with a county fair theme.....
Again, her body was stamped on Prima Ledger paper and rubbed with Pebbles cream chalks
I paper pieced her dress from a denim look paper...
her cowgirl hat, boots, rope and saddle are all from a sticker set....
the grand prize ribbon I made using a Tim Holtz rosette Alterations die...
I used chalkboard paper a new, just arrived today SU chalk pen
for my country fair sign.....
 
 
Hope you have enjoyed these creations this week...
and now you need to hop on along and see the lovely creations
from the other girls!!!
here is the list for you.....

Your canvas turned out so cute! I love how you used the bubble wrap for the background. I save the stuff, but never remember to use it. I also fell in love with your cowgirl, and feel ashamed that the Texan didn't think of it first! Thanks for such wonderful inspiration!

OH MY STARS!!! These are AWESOME!!! LOVE the summer time scene you've created on your canvas ... very clever! So many fabulous, creative ideas (I'll be 'borrowing' BTW) ... LOL!
But your CowGirl tag is OVER THE TOP cute! LOVE her boots (at first glance I thought she had them on the wrong feet! LOL) FANTASTIC creations my friend ...
I'm so thrilled to be doing this hop with you ladies ... looks like I need to 'step it up a bit' ... my creations seem 'blah' next to everything you ladies are making! But that's okay ... that's how we grow ... right!
Fantastic Diane!! Thanks so much for wonderful inspiration! Have a fun day!

I think the neatest thing about these stamps is that even when several of us use the same stamp, they all turn out so differently! Love your canvas! The background is so inventive..bubble wrap...genius! Your country fair girls is a hoot! Love her hat and boots!
