Paper people - soul jounal - Done

I completed my paper family todayand I had a lovely time doing them, especially as I don't DO figures ( In schoo I don't DO lots of things, sick, blood, prom dress talk before coursework is finished!!!)
I am quite pleased with them, They are a bit Sali Mali, I think, (Mags and Segsa will get this straight away!) Here is a better look at them.
I made us like those paper dollies you cut out but keeping them together somewhere at the folds. So we old up into our house really easily!
Sarah has asked us to prep and gesso 6 pages, so dutifully in between cleaning I glued in print offs of hand writing and s magazine image of a wrought iron light/ chandelier.
Wonder what we will be doing......

Nice family. I don't do dolls but am catching up on pages.

What an adorable family you have. I've fallen behind on this project but will catch up soon. You've inspired me to jump in and to make the paper people all my own.

Thank-you for the welcome Carol, sorry it's a little late. I have been checking your blog out for the last few weeks and am hughly inpressed with your journal. Maybe I will attempt one once I have got up to speed with getting my blog set up properly.

I'm from Narberth so not too far away. I was very interested to hear you go to Gorseinon. A few years ago I did do a year on part 2Creative Embroidery, but could not fit it in to life very well at the time, so I'm afraid I did not complete it. I think you mentioned Enid is finishing there sometime, any idea when? I have been weighing up doing Level 2 Machine Embroidery, I am tempted to do it on a residential but it costs, although it would be over in a year.

I came up to Swansea to see Elton John at The Liberty Stadium, it was great and what a great stadium - not too big. If I'm coming up I'll e-mail you.

Oh my gosh! Your house and neighborhood pages are fantastic! I love all the cheerful colors, and the Home is where the "heart" is phrase! Perfect!

And I love the paper dolls. Yours turned out so well!
