I'M A PAPER DOLL!

A couple weeks ago, I commissioned Jordan Grace to make custom paper dolls of Jon and me to start my collection of custom portraits for our home. I have been in love with Jordan's work since I first met her last September. You might have seen my post about her here or here!

Yesterday, I received my package and was completely amazed and excited about her work. Her packaging was so put together and the little dolls represent Jon and me perfectly! They are so, so cute!! I love the dainty little details. :)

 
 
 

I'm planning to put these in a shadow box and hang them up in our new home when we move in August. :) Have you ever gotten a custom piece done? What are some of your favorite artists?? I'd love to hear your thoughts and add to my new collection!

  5. Well, if you're looking for an artist for portraits, I'd recommend Kelsey-Garrity Riley. I love her artwork! I don't know if she does commission though but you could try. Far as I know, she lives in Savannah, Georgia. By the way, lovely paperdolls! If I were you, I'd make a mock video clip with it coz they are just plain whimsical ♥

  10. Incredibly adorable! :) I love the shadow box idea. Rachele of Nearsighted Owl did a portrait for me and I love it. I feel sort of hooked on personal art because of it.
