Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) Art Journal ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello and Happy February! I'm back with my latest project using the Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) collection from I wanted to feature Penny and her family, so I brought out my art journal to create this spread. 

     This collection has a lot of border pieces on the papers and sticker sheet, which I pieced together to make a frame around both pages, rubbing the edges with Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes (Bronze Age and Vintage Gold).

     The background is made from torn pieces of paper and tissue from a sewing pattern, adhered with Prima Marketing Soft Matte Gel. Then I added some Distress Spray Stains (Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, and Worn Lipstick). 

     I cut slits in the hats right below the brims, with an X-acto knife, before gluing to their heads. 

     Lots of fussy-cutting!

     Little sister Emily is the only one without a hat!

      Since Penny's the star of this collection, I included two of her outfits (the blue and red dresses and hats).

     Thanks for looking and shop Graphic 45 by collection at!
