You know how things happen? You visit a friend and she’s made a wonderful jointed paper doll.
Then, just by coincidence, you visit a second friend and guess what? Yup! Another beautiful doll.
Then you visit a third friend and, holy smokes…she’s got an exquisite mermaid going on!
Well, it doesn’t take much more and you decide you’ve got to have a mermaid/flapper/jointed doll in your life too!
The internet…gotta love it…has a multitude of jointed doll pattern out there. I chose this one.
Made myself a mermaid. Naked of course. Hey, if I was a mermaid I’d so not want to be dragged down by seashell bras and be made a slave to dry people conventions.
Sat her up against my most favourite Nick Bantock’s “Man Descending” on my office desk.
Next I decided to make a flapper. Same pattern. Dressed her in jet beads and fringe. Stood her up against Man Descending.
Man Descending looks pretty happy to me. 😀
