Baby Dolls!

Greetings! I have a special Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls post for you today. We don't normally post on the second Tuesday of the month, but this month is different. With the release of the Simply B Stamps collection, the Toxic Teens, I thought it would be fun to have our children (hence, "Baby Dolls") do a post featuring their artwork. This came about since 2 of the Toxic Teens were named after my kids, who of course immediately wanted to start coloring their namesakes. Here's what my Baby Dolls created.


As I have mentioned many times before, Phoenix is always creating something. He's always got his markers out, his glue stick, and a pair of scissors. Well, all the cutting he's been doing (and I know it's a lot due to all the confetti on my living room rug) has certainly paid off. This kid can wield those crummy kiddie scissors like no one's business. And honestly, I have a hard time using them! Check this out.


Do you so how closely he has cut "Nix" out?! I am seriously astonished by his skills. And I think his coloring is adorable.

He made this card as soon as I had gotten the set originally. he was thrilled to color a character named after himself. It's tough to see in this photo, but this Nix is all cut out as well.

And here is my Baby Girl. She is in her Monochromatic Phase right now. ;) Seriously. She picks a color, and goes nuts with it. Which I think is awesome. She often goes for green, so I was surprised to see this purple version of "Rhi." She had made another card as well, but I think she gave it to my mom or something.

Of course, she needed rhinestones like her big bro, and I love the little circles she put around them. And I am very impressed by the way she colored Rhi in. Yeah, it's all one shade, but if you look at her strokes, she really paid attention to the direction of the lines in the image. This kid's got talent too!
So there are my Baby Dolls! I love everything they make, and they are so proud to show off to you. And, if you head on over to the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog, you will get to see what some of the other Baby Dolls created! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
