Guest Project by Paperiliitin: Tiny Art Doll

Hello there! It’s Riikka from Paperiliitin blog here today to share my first guest project! Namely I had the privilege and honor to get a lovely box of treasures from Paper Garden and created several projects using the content. 

I’m a mixed media influenced crafter. I started scrapbooking almost ten years ago and since then my style has evolved to the mixed media direction. Currently I design for Prima Marketing and also belong to the brand ambassador team of Finnabair, among others.  

As this first project I created a tiny little art doll out of a clothes pin. Even though the box was filled with gorgeous vintage papers and old book pages, I wanted to think outside of the box and use the sweet little wooden peg to create something. The shape was totally that of a ballet dancer as it seemed the pin was on pointe. 

I started the project by adding an eyelet screw to the top of the pin, so I could use the little doll as a decoration. Then I painted the top and bottom with acrylic paint, collaged some paper for the top and used seam binding to make the tutu styled skirt. I also added some fluffy hair, lace pointe shoes and a little lace crown to the doll. I recorded a video while working with the project, so you can see what I did. 


I hope you liked my first project with the box! I’ll be sharing more gradually. 
All the best,
Xoxo Riikka
