Can you create a PAPER DOLL inspired craft?? Bring your paper doll idea to life using vintage images from VIC. Submit your craft photo, and you may win a new copy of "Artful Paper Dolls" by the renowned designer and author, Terry Taylor! FREE Victorian vintage images are posted on VIC's Facebook for you to download between June 14 and July 5. Or you can purchase ready-to-print Image Books from our VIC Store. Cut up those images and craft something cute, kitchy or expressive.
Through July 22, you can submit your paper doll vintage-inspired craft photo to Vintage Image Craft -- and the Challenge is On!! The top three winners will share adulation, international acclaim, and PRIZES!
Your project can be a card, ornament, decoration, tag, ATC, altered book, scrapbook page, jewelry, box or any other craft. Use a VIC vintage image, free on Facebook or purchased from Vintage Image Craft for your "paper doll" parts. Incorporate any techniques, including collage, assemblage, altered art, stamping and/or distressing. Digital artwork is welcome.

JUDGING: Entries will be judged on creative use of vintage images, design, color, materials and textures, embellishment, techniques, and pure whimsy. The judges are Scott Henderson and Martin Bray.
PRIZES: First Prize is a copy of Terry Taylor's remarkable book, artful paper dolls from Lark Books. Terry takes paper dolls in a dozen new directions.
