Lovely Oddities

There is no beauty without some strangeness -Edgar Allen Poe 


It's rather interesting what you or I may find beauty in. Like many. We find beauty in the most strangest things. I have always been fond of little oddities. There's just something about the way they fall far from perfection that makes them -PERFECT.

It was of no surprise when I came across the Art Work of Katelan Foisy. I instantly fell in love with her jointed paper dolls.

Here you have 2 of 6 of her Victorian Inspired Circus Paper Dolls. Meet her Victorian Inspired Circus/Coney Island Paper Dolls: The Twins Crustacea. Each comes with her very own performing stage (background) that you can easily display inside a shadow box or inside a frame. I've chosen to put mine inside shadow boxes -that is as soon as I find two that can accommodate the background stages (which are approximately 17' l x 11" w). The twins measure 12" tall and Crustacea measures 11" tall.

I'm pretty sure you're wondering "WHY" there's miniature versions of Katelan's dolls on my packages? Let me explain, I just recently got into making my own DIY gift wrap sheets and was in the middle of wrapping my packages when my dolls arrived. And it gave me this idea. I took my CAMEO PIXSCAN CUTTING MAT and shrunk them to approximately 5" tall each.

For my HAPPY BIRTHDAY printed gift wrap sheet I used AMY ROBISON'S happy birthday script that I purchased via the Silhouette Design Store. Note: For Personal Use Only.
