 As you may have noticed,  my hiatus continues. This blog is currently on a back burner of a stove that doesn't exist for a while. Forgive my metaphors. In other words I am not currently working on this blog and will not post anything for some time.

Mrs. Frizzle 4th of July


Happy 4th of July! I designed a paper doll inspired by the character from the Magic School bus series Mrs. Frizzle.  This character was created by Joanne Cole and originally illustrated by Bruce Degan. The book series was published by Scholastic Company and the TV series was on PBS. The bases are from the different versions, TV to the left and book to the right.  The fashions are designed by me for the holiday.  I plan on doing more outfits from the books and TV series.  Please note this is fan art and I do not claim to own this character, just adapting it into a paper doll.  She has two outfits, each doll can wear, and a pair of shoes and boots.  Each doll has an earring as well, that can be placed by cutting a small slit near the hairline and pushing the tab in.
