I started by using a baby photo of my Grandma. I tinted her hair and skin and adjusted the levels.
Next I chose a background from scrap book paper.
A little photo shop magic (actually a lot) and an added flower from another paper and it's done!
After doing this one, I searched Pinterest and the web. I found awesome paper doll downloads and more creative papers. I plan on actually printing some of them off and cutting and layering them and adding embellishments. What a fun way to celebrate your history in a shabby chic kind of way.
This is another one I created with my mom's photo and some paper doll clothing.
I will post more photos as I create them.
