Bethany - Made for the Annual Paper Doll Convention 2014




I was asked to contribute a paper doll for the Raffle Room of the annual Paper Doll Convention - held this year in Richmond, Virginia (25-29 June).
If you want to read more about the convention this post  2014 Paper Doll Convention  by Anne K Donze provides an amazing amount of detail.

I sent in Bethany together with an accompanying sketch of the doll.




I also made another version of Alice to add to my donation as I felt one page with only one doll looked a bit paltry!  The original post and the background behind Alice can be found here (Introducing Alice) .





My original intention was to include a third doll and make a new version of Clarissa as well but I ran out of time!  I was going to call them my three little ABC girls but in the end I had to settle for just A & B !




I'm still hoping to find out who won my dolls and how well they did.  I believe they drew a fair amount of comment because they were sent in from Ireland!

All three dolls are based on the beautiful artwork of Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.

Hi Sharon (or should that be stranger?!),

Your dollies are beautiful, you are very talented (I struggle with padding out stick-figures!) The person lucky enough to win them must have been thrilled to bits!
( I would've been :) )

I hope you are well Sharon - it has been lovely reading a post from you _ I often think about you and wonder how you're going - especially when I see a vintage ballerina print.

Take care, love Kylie x

Very lovely dolls and I like your name for them. :) Did you ever find out who won them?

Your dolls are always so wonderful! Oh how I would love to be able to go to the convention! But any vacation days I have are reserved for our growing family.
