Listeners, this is the final week of our Kickstarter and things are looking a little grim… The Gals open the show with a little reminder about all of the awesome donor gifts we are offering in return for your donation. If you enjoy the show please consider donating. If you can’t donate then spread the word about the show and our Kickstarter! http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-alcohol-ink.htm
This week The Gals talked about paper dolls… well they tried to at least. There are a lot of crazy side bars in this episode, which always prove to be entertaining. Katie’s cat makes an appearance, as does Sharon’s youngest son. There is a lot of nostalgic jibber jabber, a couple of rants, and well… you will just have to listen and see if you can keep up with these to today!
While researching for this episode we found a fascinating article in Collectors Weekly about the history of paper dolls; you should check it out! It is a great read.http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/the-scrappy-history-of-paper-dolls/
Katie mentioned the free template available for download on the Enchanted Gallery and if you would like to get busy making some bad-ass paper dolls of your own be sure to check that out. http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html
Make sure you also go check out the amazing paper dolls available on the Ten Two Studios site as well; you won’t be disappointed! http://tentwostudios.com/#!/Paper-Dolls/c/5621189/inview=product15583186&offset=12&sort=normal
We have been having some technical difficulty with video editing and uploading so there are none to see this week but because the show notes are a slim on things to look at this week, here is a picture of the self portrait doll that Katie talked about during the show. Not exactly a paper doll, but it is a flat doll and shows how you can use cloth to create clothing options for your paper doll creations.
Remember, you can follow us on all the social medias! From here you only need to click the links for each on the side bar and you will be able to find us.
