Paper Doll Tags- Julie Nutting style!

Hi - I hope you all had a great weekend!  The best part of my weekend, was I finally was able to take part in a class at Gee Gee's in Carlsbad, taught by Julie Nutting!   She had published a book that I purchased while traveling over the holidays, and is in the process of writing a new one!  I was able to get this one signed in class which was very special.

Although she has tought these tag classes in the past this one was different as she was able to focus her doll images with her recently released stamps (revealed through Prima Marketing at CHA). I felt like I was playing with paper dolls again, and we all had a blast!

Last year at this time I used my Silhouette, and cut some paper dolls and made this Heartfelt project for me Sister.  This was totally inspired by Julie's techniques, so what a joy it was to meet her, and finally take her class!

For this class we made 2 tags, and used her new stamps to create the outline.  Paper piecing created the clothes, and we inked and created little collages for each tag.
These were completed with the minimal supplies provided, I think I have a few ideas to embellish these a bit more.

But in the meantime, I think they're adorable!  And I have 2 of her stamps to do more!!  -

Thanks for stopping by-

Those stamps look fun. I would love to play with some G45 paper and the stamps. Bring them to Palomar!
