Please click on any photo for yummy close up details!
I won this cage and bird at Brian's Holiday work party last year.
I carefully removed a front piece and sponge painted it with silver paint.
This inside card divider image was taken from a art book I borrowed from the library. Please click on it for a close up to see the subtle detail I added to the little chandeliers...
Per chance while browsing the clearance books at a local book store, I found a
I glittered up every one's costumes and even hand sewed material and trim to make up Marie's dress! I colored her hair in with a fabric marking pencil .
I made the chandelier from 2 felt ornaments that I got from a $1 bin a Michaels Craft store.

The back of the Theater shows a place behind the curtain for Marie to rest.
Those are her children waiting to enjoy tea and pastries near the fire place.
All the paper dolls are mounted to a single magnet, so they may be moved around.

~ I did not permanently adhere anything in place as I now have a place to show off future paper doll art for any festive occasion!
Hope you enjoyed "The Dance"!
