She has a way with numbers...

This is a paper doll I made a couple of years ago. It's about OCD. I know a person who has a touch of OCD and numbers are a big part. She was my inspiration. The body is a playing card that I altered. Her legs and arms move. You can fold up the arms and legs and her body is the size of an ATC, 2.5" x 3.5". If you look closely, I added tiny watch pieces into the collage on her body.

I've been going through older artwork and posting some of it. Sometimes it's good to look back. Art is one of those areas where I do like to look back. I usually take a picture of each finished piece. For a time I was really into making paper dolls. I sold them all - over 2 dozen of them! There is a whole world of paper doll collectors!

I'll post more this week.

I'm a fan (as of today) of this wonderful blog!
And a BIG thank you for answering my question about the deli paper. I've used several kinds of paper, but I keep looking for that elusive "perfect" surface. I've been looking for a collage group/club in the N. Georgia area, but to no avail. Looks like I might just have to start one. Thanks again for the information! :o)
