Dancing Queens

I really loved the advert of the late Eighties/early Nineties of the Swan lake dancers eating Smiths Chips. The dancers were delicate, poised, demure images - who then chomped in crisps and burst the bag!

The ads were unforgetable. They have influenced my love of dance and and now have sprung up in my new paper dolls.

The dolls I want to create are traditional in general image but rendered in non-traditional colours and patterns in paper.
