Dye Paper Dolls to embellish your Journal

Today I am going to share with you a simple way to make sweet paper dolls to use on your journal.
You are going to need, sketch book paper, Fabre castel Pitt pens in earth tones, acrylic white paint and watercolor crayons.

First step apply acrylic white paint in your page with a spatula or paintbrush.

When the paint it's dry, sketch your girl with the pit pen.

Make her shading, starting with the darkest areas of the face and apply on top a whet paintbrush to dissolve the ink.

I have applied first the Cinnamon 189 and after Terracota 186

For the hair, apply randomly some marks with the color you choose and apply your whet paintbrush.

For the chicks a bit of pink carmin that you can smudge with your finger.

Go get you watercolor crayons and pick beautiful colors for your girls dresses.

I used two colors for each dress and activate the color with a bit of water- use a paintbrush or finger, you choose.
When it´s dry, cut them and make a beautiful journal page ;)


This is an example of one of my pages, check more here and here

If you like to make yours and send me a picture of your journal page with your name and blog, please send it to me until this friday (February 14) I will be happy to share them on my blog.

 I hope you participate with your beautiful creation!!!!!
