These are some of the Caribbean Mermaid Paper-dolls that I have created.

The inspiration for these paper dolls was two of my favorite mermaid stories: "Sukey and the Mermaid" by Robert D. San Souci and
"The Mermaids Twin Sister" by Lynn Joseph.

These stories captured my imagination. I also love the many versions of "The Little Mermaid". I like Disney's version with the steel drum beat songs, and I have also seen and read more sinister versions. Another mermaid favorite of mine is Aquamarine, which is a cute teen movie, but Mermaids all the same.

Brand new paper doll blog:

This is my new blog. I will start with a few older paper dolls, then I will continue as I make new ones.

These were made from pictures of my original hand drawn paper-dolls,posed with hand made cut-outs then printed out and re-colored. The paper is crumbled, and when you play with them they have a beautiful patina, of being old and very well loved.
