Mermaid Jada to ColorHere is Jada in simple black and white, ready for you to color her in however you  wish!  Included are black and white images of several of her costumes as well…..

To download: jada_bw_pdf

This way, you can use her as a coloring page.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while:  clean up a few files for people to print out in black and white and color (that’s how we’ve been making the mermaid paper dolls in my household.)  Anyway, here is Amethystine and a few of her tails.  This particular Amethystine is slightly different from the original paper doll that I released:  her eyes are closed and she looks rather peaceful……I like to imagine what she’s thinking about.

Mermaid Amethystine from black and white file  Above is an example of how Lily and I colored Amethystine today (I used my new ArtRage 2 program, but it’s the same idea as getting out the crayons, glitter, colored pens and a few stencils…..the toys need picking up and I just plain didn’t have it in me to generate another mess to pick up before I go to work this afternoon.)  Lily wanted a LOT more glitter, but we compromised my adding a bit more pink.  -LSW

The pdf’s for the black and white files: amethystine black and white_pdf1

mermaid_amethystine_introWell, we’ve got another 4 inches of snow due today, so in honor of the winter that just won’t quit, here’s another mermaid paper doll…….doesn’t she have crazy hair?  Amethystine was a very tough sell to my kiddos until I added just a touch of pink to her swirling tresses.

To print and play with your own Mermaid Amethystine, you’ll need to following pdf files: amethystine_pdf

Here are some images to give you an idea of what Amethystine looks like (pdf file actually prints to 8×10 pages, so these images here are scaled down.)

Like Mermaid Jada, Amethystine will definitely need re-inforcing with a heavier piece of paper….if you make her with just plain ol’ copier paper, she will flop over.  Also, I encourage you to experiment with making your own stand using Amethystine’s base as a platform.  Have fun!

I had to share this because it is just plain charming….I can’t decide which one I like the most because they’re all so nifty.  My daughter is very proud of the mergirl in particular:image2

It’s still cold, there’s still snow on the ground, and you can’t really do much of anything outside for any length of time.  I’ve been spending a part of every afternoon this week sitting in a patch of sun in the living room, working on a mermaid paper doll with my kiddos.  Here’s what we’ve come up with:

 

And the files you need:    mermaid_jada

Please note:  She’s a long, tall drink of water.  If you make her out of lightweight paper, you’ll want to reinforce her back with another strip of paper. 

I like the notion of using her base as a stand, but I haven’t fiddled around with it enough to give good instructions.  Input is welcome.

Also, and this is very important, you’ll need to cut two small slats in her hair for her combs and crowns because, as we all know, mermaids like their bling.  Two small slats cut just on her shoulder line should be enough to hold her tops in place.
