Paper Doll Project

I have been working this weekend on a cabinet I found at GW.  Sorry no before pics, but it started out as a wooden cabinet with a typical dark image on it.  I had no real plan, but just created as I went - but I had a page ripped from an old Mary Engelbreit magazine and I used the paper dolls to get started.  I'm not quite through yet - I think I want to put something in the background inside - like old photos or something glued to the back wall.  Then I can put some "little" finds inside.  I also found this little pup, he was rather plain, but was made for Victoria's Secret.  I thought he matched the papers and colors I used, so I decorated him to sit on top.  If there's any interest, I may eventually put it up on Etsy.  :)

Have a wonderful day!

    Rug...rug wool is usually quite thick and quite hard on the fingers but great for rugs!! lol
    So l would have thought one strand would be OK
    l used acrylic 2 stands of dk or chunky for mine but do think rug wool would be a longer lasting option..hope that helps
