Never too Old Paper Art Doll

I had so much fun with my Spirelli Copper Art Doll I made last week that I decided to make another Paper Art Doll. This time I used some of my new Original Digital Frame Designs. I use the Striped Circular Petal Frame to frame her face and the Striped Square Scalloped Frame over her body. Instead of cutting out the middle of the frames, I left them intact. The face was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine. The frames were colored with Sharpie markers and the white is gel pen. The face and the body template are from my soon to be released Paper  Art Doll Templates. The "Never Too Old Sentiment" is from my Express Yourself Series.

Never too Old  was created for and is being featured on this fortnight's Anything Goes / A Frame of Mind challenge on Art With No Boundaries.

This week we are again having two different challenges at the same time, an Anything Goes challenge and a special Bonus Round challenge called A Frame of Mind. We are also offering another prize for our Bonus Round this week so drop by for a chance to win and have a look at the rest of the Teams fabulous examples while you are there. We also love it when you share your art with us so be sure to add your creations to the challenge.

Never too old Paper Art Doll is playing in the following challenges.
