Kings and Queens

Hi everybody!

This week our theme is Kings and Queens. I wanted to do Freddie Mercury as Queen, but then I had the idea for a little queen art- doll tag,  and tried it out.
The doll has been  cut out of scraps of printed paper, and fixed together with glue spots - I decided against moveable joints. The crown is a castle stamp which has the right size to double up as a crown.
Her dress has been made from a rosette which was on a notebook that someone sent me as a present some time back. The notebook has long been used up, but I kept the rosette to use again, so thanks a lot if it was from you! The golden jewels have been added with liquid pearls, and I mounted her onto a tag made of scraps which I matted together.




That's all for today. Have a good week, whatever you are up to, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
Valerie
