Lilla's paper lady Tute

On Lilla's blog there is a tute on how to 'jazz up' a printed paper image into a Christmas paper doll

Here is my attempt

(Click to enlarge to see a close up of the netting skirt)
I cut her into sections. Next I cut out a hat shape, and glued a tiny peice of glittery red material and added a big red stickle. I used some cream netting for her skirt, enhanced some colours using promarkers, and as I didn't have any beads, I used stickles glue as beads, even on her dainty satin shoes. Finally I glued her back together onto thick card to make into a hanger or a tag not sure which. Lilla made hers a different way, but I didn't any craft sticks so had to improvise. I just love the elegance of times gone by - and those gorgeous evening gloves. I think she looks rather Regency don't you?

Lilla has this image and a Marie Antoinnette image too. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration Lilla

I loved this image so much that I have printed her onto material and am busy sewing on 'things' with the intention of using her on a bag - which I have yet to make!

How beautiful, lots of movement on this. I think she's a bit of a cheeky girl tho' she has mischief in her eye despite her demure gloves!

Love what you have done with your lovely lady. The net look great and I also love the colour of her. Where did you get your picture from to alter? The stickles actually look like real beads.

Just spent a wee while catching up with your blog Lottie - some lovely stuff! The covers you did for the wedding book look absolutely gorgeous and I love this little doll with her flowing net overskirt, fantastic!
