Hello!!!! I am so happy, delighted to be here!!! If you are reading, means you should congratulate yourself as we are in the last few days of MOC!!!! I have been amazed going around the galleries that are rocking with talent and amazing creativity!!! For today's challenge, we will be making a photo less page, a layout where the main feature is an Art Doll. Don't be discouraged if you have never played with art dolls, this will be super easy and so much fun!!! I promise! Think about this as a relaxed, playful collage, kind of going back to childhood and putting together paper dolls and dressing them up, just having fun. Or, you can go a bit deeper if you want to give your page a meaning that has to do with with you, your feelings, your friends, a family story, a fantasy story, something imaginary, a memory ….. the possibilities are endless!!! As simple or as deep as you want it to go, this is your doll, you can make her be whoever you would like, fantasy or a representation of whatever YOU love her to be. The key word is FUN, having fun developing your creativity by building up a doll. And to make it even easier for us, Tangie Baxter has kindly provided a template set to use to make our own doll! You can download the template HERE. Head, Torso and Arms are required. Legs, wings and crown/ head dress and any other pieces are optional. You can use elements and papers, word art or strips, fasteners, all things you can find in your kits can be used to embellish your doll as much as you like. You can add other elements & papers to the page, journaling and title are also optional, make your doll as big or small as you want, but your doll needs to be the main feature of your page. You can have another doll in your page; it can be a repetition of the main one, or a different doll, but needs to be build by you . DO NOT use ready made dolls, please. Your doll can be a traveler, a cook, a princess or a queen, a pilot or a scientist, whatever or whoever you want her to be. You can make her part of a book cover, or page one of any project, you can fill in your page or go minimalist. A note about the face: you can use flairs that have a face (like I did in my second page), or compose your own face, or use doodles of doll heads that come in kits, if you are having difficulties, let me know, tag or pm, and I will post a list of products you can use from kits you may already have The inspiration for your page should come from Vivaldi's 4 Seasons: (you can click on the high-lit name of the season to go to the music) Spring Summer Autumn Winter The inspiration may come from the images for your color palette, or the music, even both together. It can bring back a memory or just a feeling. Here are a couple of pages I made: Inspired in the Summer colors & the Autumn music: and with both color palette and music from Spring. To recap: Your Challenge is to make a page in which the main feature is an Art Doll using the template provided as a guide, using scrapping products to build & embellish it , inspired by one of ViValdi's 4 Seasons. The Rules: 1. Use the template provided by Tangie Baxter to make your doll. You must have a head, torso and arms. Legs, wings, crown and other pieces are optional. You can have 2 dolls in your page. NO ready made dolls please 2. Choose one of Vivaldi's 4 Seasons for your inspiration. You must state which season you chose in the page description in the gallery, together with your credits. 3. This is a photo-less page. General Requirements: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: 1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). 2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. 3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.Pages should contain at least 75% current The Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).
