I had a lot of fun creating my Martha Stewart Paper Dolls. It took me a while to create. I did this set about three or four years ago.
I got the idea as I was reading an issue of my Martha Stewart Magazine. I decided I was going to create a Martha Stewart Paper Doll set to possibly get into an issue of her magazine. One could only hope. After I finished the sets, I sent copies to the magazine.
I did get a nice letter in the form of a stationery card with hand written writing. I still have the card somewhere. The person praised my artwork, but it did get declined for the magazine. It probably wasn't something they wanted in the magazine.
But I had fun making them anyway.
My favorite set is the four page set with the witches outfit and the statue of liberty. I think I got the facial features looking the best in that set.
The other two sets are nice too, but not my favorites. One of the heads in the other sets is a little too big, I think. But there are some fun features to the set. I personally like her to do list in the set with her big head.
I just think my details are best in the set of four pages.
It took quite a few weeks or longer to finish that set. It takes me a long time to get to completion of a paper doll set.
I usually start off with my pen and ink outline. Then I get all my details and then, I slowly go in with the color.
My newest sets have very detailed backgrounds. It is just as important as the rest of the page.
If interested in purchasing the sets, I have them for sale in another post on this blog and all my other blogs.
