    I welcome your tips and ideas CiCi!
    Have you ever found\used a fine line fabric marker?
    Making your own pattern is fine. And I only suggested that you all take a look at the other project to see how these things work. I think that bigger than 12" would present challenges, artistic and postal.

    Before I knew what art cards were, I signed all my quilt labels (cotton fabric) with a fine line Micron pen. Mostly, they are art quilts with embellishments, that I don't like to launder. However, some are more utilitarian and have been washed several times, and the labels are still readable! Now I use Microns endlessly on my art cards - they are wonderful.

    Oh that would be awesome Bluesky! I've never worked with paper clay before either.

    Micron pen goes on my shopping list!

    Super easy......I made dolls with paper clay masks...native American vibe.....pushed clay out to make a border that used an needle/awl to make holes... When dry painted with arcylic paint and beaded holes.

    If you have a doll with a hard face you can make your own mold.

    Also for face you can do black line embroidery. Look at dolls by mummysam.

    I am thinking about it. I have stopped doing atcs for a while, but love this type of thing. I would have the time, just need to see if I can find a doll in time??? Any possible links for where to purchase a plain one? Don't have time to sew it right now.
