Paper Saturday's Paper Dolls

I am so pleased you are stopping by. Yes it is that time again for us to link our art. I would love to see what you have created this week. If you like to share and meet other artists please scroll down and add your link.


I have been drawing a personalised paper doll each day. I can't wait to show you the completed dolls with limbs and accessories. The response to my challenge of a paper doll a day so far has been amazing. I have plenty of volunteers and last week I promised to make a paper doll out of one of you but I decided to make one out of each of you who volunteered. 

So if you can either befriend me on FB so I can stalk you and use some of your photos from your albums or if you wish you could email me the ones you want me to work from to manonvisser6@hotmail.com. Some of the dolls are going to be available in my Etsy shop very soon so don't forget to keep checking back.



OK so now it is over to you what have you been doing this week?

Free one of your sub-personalities and link up with Paper Saturdays.

For the last couple of days I have been working like mad on a challenge. For months I have wanted to broaden my art portfolio by including more paper goodies. So when the 29face challenge came up again I set myself the challenge to work on personalised Paper dolls. I am aiming for one paper doll a day. You can follow me here.

I can't begin to tell you how much fun it is to draw people I know and some I don't know. By studying the photos I have been given to draw the doll I am learning lots about that person. The process is so interesting it is almost like some of the sub-personalities come alive in front of me. To express this visually I am also creating small animations of a few of them.


Very shortly I will include this feature of personalised Paper dolls into my Etsy shop and just for Paper Saturdays I thought it might be fun to draw one of you lovely followers. Please leave me a comment and tell me why you would like to be a paper doll. I will pick a name out of the hat by next Saturday.I also hope you have some wonderful art to share with us please read what you need to do and link up.

Link up with Paper Saturdays and send a powerful message.



I experienced some technical problems last week so I am sorry there was no post for Paper Saturdays. Thank you for all your lovely messages of concern, I feel very loved! I will be catching up with all your wonderful art very shortly and hopefully things will be a bit more plain sailing from now on.


Despite the little hick ups my creating has continued behind those closed doors. I really love making different things with my drawings. What do you think of these little matchbox dolls? Would it not be wonderful to send your loved ones a message to show you care? They are available in my Etsy shop.

Paper Saturdays link up time and a little animation

The other day someone asked where Lottie was. I sadly admitted that I had neglected her a bit in the last months and look at what has happened to her. I was shocked. Don't you think that Lottie looks a little worse for wear? It made me wonder what she has been up to and by looking at her belly she wasn't throwing those cakes out. I promise I will take greater care of her and I will keep you informed about how she is doing.

Paper Saturdays link up and the meaning of line work.

Welcome to Paper Saturdays if you have come to share your art with us please scroll down and link up. 

 

I love building visual grammar with line work because there can be so much emotion in just a few lines. I know it is a little darker then my usual work but I have to say I enjoy this side of my art too.


A line is a dot out for a walk.
—Paul Klee

Here we go again another day of Paper Saturdays were you can link the art you have created this week. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us. Please scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter your link.

I have been busy working on a little sketch which when finished I played around with in Photo Shop. I love doing this and bellow are some examples of what can be done in just a few hours. I get lots of pleasure playing around with my sketches to get ideas for future projects.

Paper Saturdays link up time.

Welcome to Paper Saturdays, feel free to share your art with us this week in the mr Linky at the bottom of this post. Linking up is a wonderful way to be in touch with other like minded souls.

Again I am experiencing trouble with my Internet connection. I guess that serves me right for having pleasure in living out in the sticks. However much I love being in the middle of nowhere the situation with limited Internet is extremely frustrating with regards to keeping up with my blog and having to bend myself in all sorts of ways to get to you. Anyway I have made it it again and today I am leaving you with some sketches which I drew in order to prepare myself before I started a painting. Do you warm up before you start a project or do you just delve in?

Paper Saturdays link up time.

I am back from my Holidays and I was ready to embrace Paper Saturdays with a fresh mind and lots of humph. However as soon as I flew back home I  heard about the disaster of the Malaysian Boeing 777. I feel even more gutted and saddened then I already would as a special person in my life lost a very young family member. There are no words I can think of that will make it better for all of you who are affected instead I will carry you in my heart!



Today I am leaving you with some very emotional self portraits I painted before my break in coinjunction with a class by Gillian Lee Smith. Like I said above sometimes there are just no words. Maybe the paintings will tell you all.

Paper Saturdays, time to link up your art.

Life is still a little hectic here. Lots of moving of things and people are again much at the fore front of my daily routine this week. Nevertheless it is all good fun and it may last a little while longer. Enough of that and lets get into Paper Saturdays. Are you ready to link up the art that you have created this week?  

I had a commission for one of those cute wooden brushes I have in my Etsy shop. I couldn't find a paper with the right colour combination that was asked for so I used a plain tissue paper and hand painted the butterflies. I really enjoyed making the time to paint in between the chaos of the day I think I should make time for it each day as it has a meditating sort of effect on me. Tell me do you make time for you?

A Still Life, Paper Saturdays link up time.

Life isn't standing still for me right now. There seems to be movement in every little corner you could ever imagine possible so forgive me for not having been able to visit you Paper Saturday friends. Please bare with me and keep linking your gorgeous art I will catch up I promise but for now to calm myself down I am leaving you and me with a still life of the Mason brothers. These wonderful beasts are my studio friends and help me stay grounded.
