Call this the "daughter of a paper doll" with fiber, paper, wire and bits of bling. Here's our mixed media “paper doll” for the Altered Artist. She’s not flat, like the dolls of yesterday, we’re making her 3-D. Her arms and legs can move as well. Her clothes won’t be glossy paper held on with tabs, instead they’ll be bits of fabric, lace, and trim, held on with Velcro or fiber tape.
