Asian Paper Doll Canvas
For this canvas I used a number of ideas found in "Collage couture Studio Paper Dolls." I printed one of the five dolls in the book (Kyoko) and her line drawn outfits. I cut out 2 pieces from the outfits, a top and pants. Then I traced them onto two pieces of origami paper and cut those out as well as the doll. I placed soft pads on her back for depth after I glued the top and pants in place.
The Pagoda was traced and cut from a template in the book, using scrapbook paper. The background scrapbook paper was ripped and adhered to the 12x12" canvas. I sealed the background using Beacon Decoupage. Old rice paper was stamped in red using a collection of rubber stamps. This was ripped and glued in place.
The doll was adhered to the canvas and assorted flowers were used to embellish the piece.
I had so much fun creating this piece! Maybe I will do a French one next!
