Hung Up On All The Pretty Girls | A MSA Post

When I was focused on digital scrapping, I never really considered kits that had art dolls or any sort of figurines other than vintage cartoons.  And while I still have a special affinity for vintage images, I have grown to appreciate the art dolls or figures that can be used in so many different ways.
One of the things I like about them is that you can use them in place of a picture.  Sometimes you have a feeling/emotion that you want to scrap/journal, but you don't have a fitting photo.  Voila!  The perfect opportunity to use a doll/figure on the page in place of a photo. You can also use them to support a photo. Easy peasy.  And if you want, you can use the marquee tool to select only part of a figure/doll to add some quirkiness to a page or create a multi-doll collaged image.
Here are some examples of art dolls/figures that are around the net so hopefully you can find some inspiration or see them from a different point of view.  So... all the pretty girls...

And just because I couldn't resist... I've also been really hung up on this song lately, which is another reason for this post.

I hope you found something that you liked or something that gave you an idea of how to use a pretty girl on one of your pages.  Link us up if you have a pretty girl page.
