I finally finished the paper dolls for the 50 State Paper Doll Swap I joined on the Cricut message board. Someone kick me the next time I sign up for a swap that does not pre-list the conditions!
I had to make 50 paper dolls, 25 each from two states, Georgia and South Carolina. We were supposed to make the dolls four inches tall and include accessories.
I made this cute beach scene to represent South Carolina - We do have a lot of fabulous beaches! My accessories include a Palmetto Palm tree, the state tree, with a tag bearing the state tourism motto.
For Georgia I had a brain block. I could only think of Georgia peaches. So... I made peach farmers.
The baskets were a bit more time consuming than I had planned. I added a wheelbarrow as an accessory, with the title, Georgia - The Peach State.
I cut a fill sheet of the peaches at .70 inches. I used a copic marker and colored the stems and leaves before removing the peaches from the mat.
I will put my swaps in the mail tomorrow and hopefully they will get to Jen by Thursday.
