February Paper Doll - Set 3

It's been a while, I know! Things are going to go back to normal for me soon and I should get back on a more regular schedule.

For now, I have another set in the February series!

This set of themes were more more difficult than the last two.  First up is "match".  I created leggings with a pattern of matches.  Pizza is next with a two layer shirt.  Kiss is a skater dress with a smoochy pattern.  For t-shirt I created two: a basic white and a colorful dark.  Finally, for chocolate, I added a chocolate dipped fruit border to a skirt.

I'm shooting for a Monday post so we'll see if I can manage that! Check back!

February Paper Doll - Set 2

Obviously I'm still running a bit behind.  Today's set covers days 4 through 7.  Because this doll has a wider format than the January doll, I can't quite fit as much per sheet.  Or maybe it just feels that way!

The themes for this set were all over the place! Bowl - which I interpreted as bowling and created a retro bowling ensemble. Hearts - that was pretty straightforward.  For birds I reused the pattern from the mail set on page one.  And finally, I made a ship in a bottle for "bottle".

I'm still plugging away at the next set.  I have a lot of stuff on my plate for this week so there most likely won't be a page on Friday.  Maybe Monday depending on how my tasks go.

February Paper Doll - Set 1

I didn't really mean to start February quite so quietly here at the ol' blog but I've been dealing with some stuff.  My grandmother moved in with us this fall & had a pretty bad fall at the end of January.  She's fine but it's been a lot of back & forth to hospitals and rehab, etc, while assisting in her care.  We're eager to get her back home! So that's taken up some of my time.

The other reason it's been a bit quiet is because I decided to go big with this doodle-a-day paper doll project.  I'm going to draw a new doll for each month.  It's more work, but more work means more practice and that's a good thing!

I'm working from the February prompts from @ellolovey ( Instagram and Facebook).  This is the whole list if you'd like to follow along.

Just like the January set, this will have a limited color palette and everything should mix & match fairly well.  This sheet has the first three days: tiger, weather, and mail.  I'm hoping to get a bit caught up and further into the prompts over the weekend.  We'll see how that goes!
