Heeereee's Jimmy Ray...Johnny's Brother

This is Jimmy Ray...he is Johnny Lee's brother...and he likes to play baseball as much as Johnny Lee likes to fish. Jimmy Ray is a paperdoll in a box, created for a swap over in my PaperWhimsy Group. I know someone with the initials RA is going to be very surprized in a few days when Jimmy Ray arrives at her house.

The paper doll is on cardstock and I used Prisma Pencils to color him. I had to paint the shoes white because they were printed in black and Prisma Pencils wouldn't cover.The box is just an old cigar box painted to match the background fabric which I made using Sherrill Kahn's methods from her "Creating with Paint" book. The grass and weeds are just that, except they have been dried and dyed. The baseball bat is a miniture wooden bat, the ball glove is painted wood, the ball is a miniture ball that I drew the red stitching on with a permanent marker. The fence is wooden and colored with markers then wired together. Those are just little rocks in the bottom. The ivy around the outside is silk and the green trim, both came from Hobby Lobby. Everything was glued in or on with Gel Medium, PVC Glue or E6000.
