SO, if you like to color, and you have a penchant for fairies, elves, magic and the like, then boy oh boy do I recommend visiting the Phee McFaddel’s website, featuring artwork by Nea Wiseman. What fun! Here are two lovelies that I colored with ArtRage Pro………

This was a very cute project and the resulting mousekins are, if I may say so myself, adorable. The original concept is from Easy Papercraft Projects by Michael Grater.
Click on the template for full-size (should all fit on one 8.5″ x 11″ paper.)
Cut out templates and align along the folded edge of a piece of paper. Trace and cut out. Fold up the lower edge of the mouse (along the dotted line) and tape the ends together to make a band. Decorate your mouse. And then play!

My mother-in-law gave us a book for Christmas, Easy Papercraft Projects by Michael Grater and we have had such a good time with it this last week or so now that the weather is getting chillier. I thought I’d share the Dancing Dollies craft here on the blog, with two templates based on those from the book and two that we made ourselves. I highly recommend the book for more templates; for not much money, it’s a whole lot of fun!

Boarace and Sowena visit France! Their costumes are loosely based on illustrations in a very fine book, Folk Costumes of the World by Robert Harrold & Phyllida Legg (gotta love all those double consonants.) Anyway, it simply a super book.
The original post/files containing the Piggums paper dolls: http://paperplayday.wordpress.com/2009/03/21/presenting-mr-boarace-and-mrs-sowena-piggums-paper-dolls/
I rendered the costumes and decorative accents in ArtRage 2 with pen and ink. I hunted down and referenced other images on the internet, so there are minor deviations here and there from the original illustrations. Accent stencils were supplied by the Art Rage forums.
Please note: Mrs. Sowena is carrying a basket full of grapes. To make these grapes fit into her original basket, include a large tab on the base of the grapes when you cut them out. Make a slit or two in the basket held by the doll. Insert the grapes with tab into the slits on the doll. Voila!
