All Dolls Are Art is hosting a second online swap, this time featuring paper dolls. Why paper dolls? Because they are probably one of the first forms of art dolls that you saw as a child and were taught how to make. There is a fantastic book on the subject, by Terry Taylor, titled “artful paper dolls, New Ways to Play with a Traditional Form”, if you would like some ideas!
The rules are pretty simple. Design your very own paper doll and wardrobe. The doll and wardrobe should be no larger than two sheets of 8 1/2 x 11″ paper. You can use the traditional simple (ginger bread) shape, or can be as elaborate as you want! Once you have finalized your design, write your name, address and email address on both pages, and make 6 color copies. Keep one for yourself and mail 5 to AnLiNa Designs, PO Box 514, Round Rock, TX 78680-0514. Please mail no later than February 28th. Dolls will be swapped and mailed back out to you by March 16th. International participants are welcome to play!
Please note that by participating, your paper dolls will be published on the All Dolls Are Art Facebook page, here on the blog and will be featured in a future ADAA newsletter.
