Dolly Dingle Visits Scott And Martin
by Darlene Ostrem really brought the paper doll theme home for us! This dressed-up diorama takes Dolly Dingle on
a trip with a clothes line full of clip-on togs! We particularly liked the
multi-media assemblage of photos, purchased embellishments, rocks, and natural
findings. It is all held together with glue and a sense of humor! We’ll admit
to a touch of bias – we liked being included in her story. Darlene will receive a copy of Terry Taylor's wonderful book, Artful Paper Dolls, generously
provided by Sterling Publishing.
winning artwork will also be
on the Vintage Image Craft Home Page for one month!
Dolly Dingle Dressed-Up in Three-D
by Sally Swift leaps of the background! She embraced the paper doll
spirit by dressing
Dolly Dingle in satin, velvet and lace. Victorian fashion details
of pink ruffles, gathered bodice and ribbon flower festoons. Most
impressive was the layered paper tole technique which compliments
the dimensional costume. The finished background and frame make this a
beautiful keepsake! Sally will receive a VIC e-book from our Cards With a Past
Bathing Beauties Banner
by Nancy Yankowski is like a sunny day at a Victorian seaside resort.
We loved the alternating flags and cavorting bathers, nicely
for the length of the banner. The
nautical blue ribbons and embellishments played up the waterfront theme
beautifully. This is a wet and witty
take on paper dolls at Beach Blanket Bingo! Nancy (a return champion
from last year's Challenge) will receive
a Vintage Image Craft
