A S-troll down memory lane


Hi Friends

This post is especially for my lovely blends ( blogger friends) Deb Ochs-LaGrone of a  A Look through my eye and for Mary Ellen Smith of  Free dearie dolls digi stamps for Deb's FB challenge Troll Bridge Challenge.

let me tell you that I had no information on the troll dolls but Deb explained it and her memories associated with the troll dolls, hence the title 'A S-troll down memory lane'. Mary was so sweet to draw a troll doll especially for me and send me a digital image, thank you so much Mary Ellen Smith !!


I hand drew the Troll bridge, added some texture paste, used water color pencils, acrylic colors and fine tip black marker. colored the digi with water color pencils, fussy cut and used foam tape to add dimension, Mary had drawn the digi image with a watering can in hand which I changed to a handbag. added some punched flowers and leafs and the sentiment is computer generated. (Psssst, Deb, do you recognize that S in stroll.....). Mounted on a textured brown handmade paper, the finished size is 20x20cm. I plan to use this for the cover page of a story book for my son's school project.


This is for the first time I tried something like this and only for both these awesome ladies, Deb and Mary !!! Hope you'll be kind in your review.....am in need of some serious reassurance !!

Please do leave your comments. I would love to read what you say and I would love to visit your blog too !!

  2. Hi Suman-Brilliant little scene-fabulous bridge and I love your colouring of it.I remember the Troll dolls!! I used to have a row of them on my windowsill when I was a child-and depending on my mood they would have straight stand up hair-or flat combed to the side-LOL! I had forgotten about them until you reminded me!
    Have a great day,Nessa xx

  6. I remember the troll dolls. I still have one up in the loft in my keep sake box. He had (I always thought of it as a boy) long wispy white hair that like Nessa I would alternately comb eit er up or down. He had red eyes too. I love your hand drawn bridge and your art work is going to look super on the front of your book your making. Thank you for entering in the challenge at Craft My Life. hugs Mrs A. (DT.)
