I am very excited about today's post because my favorite artist Jo James has made this amazing paper doll -Ellowynn with her owl mask - exclusively for My Owl Barn readers. I am so glad that Jo, whose I am a long time fan and an avid follower, made something this awesome for my blog to be shared with all the owl lovers. Yay!

Like most of her artwork, I am loving the folk inspired style and whimsical feel of this paper doll. Her innocent face, intricate detail on her feathers like cape and owl mask is amazing.

Assembling this articulated paper doll will be easy for even the not-so-experienced artists or crafters. Several joints allows you to pose the doll in any number of ways. The animation above shows Ellowynn in various poses with and without the owl mask, revealing her beautiful smile. This doll will look amazing framed in a shadow box for years to cherish.


Thanks Jo, you made me so happy :)

I'm curious: did you make yours sized just like the downloaded file or did you enlarge or reduce it? This is such a cute project! Thanks for sharing.
