“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

My Inner SongBird

Norma is hosting this week's drawing challenge and she chose Paper doll/drama. It has to be a paper doll with the skirt area telling the story...this is the one I made.
I don't know how to sing, not like this anyway:) it's a wish....a talent I do not have.
But I dream it sometimes....I think my songbird is in there somewhere, singing a song only I can hear, safely hidden in my soul.


  1. Such a sweet wish....and a pretty stage to envision it! This is lovely, Marfi :)

  2. inspiring me, she would be, if hung closeby. you found the drama!
    cheers for passing.

  3. Hello Marfi, your doll is(you are) obviously enjoying the song of her songbird, i love her headdress.

  4. ooooh loving Miss Songbird, such a fab idea Marfi and so beautifully drawn. Annette x

  5. so sweet! Love your creation! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  6. Marfi, this doll is a sweetheart. I love how there is an image on a skirt within an image on a skirt within an image on a skirt. Graphically very interesting.
    I love the colors as well and isn't our little songbird just singing her heart out for us all! So lovely!
    I like how her headpiece (so theatrical) tells us her WISH. Brilliant!
    Love this piece to bits, *smiles* Norma
    p.s. I can't sing either.
    p.p.s. This doll would make a nice 'kit' that you design, where the person gets to fill in the stage part themselves (the kit would have a stash of interesting things to work with...and suggestions...maybe some samples)! Ciao!

  7. what a fantastic idea! I love that songbird, the doll is lovely, beautiful coloures - it is magical!

  8. wonderfully put together to convey your meaning!
    cheers, dana

  9. It's beautiful! and I love the poetic feel to it that you gave it. It's a great to combine poetry and art.

  10. Its actually clever. And the yellow red and green worked for me. :)

  11. She is beautiful Marfi and I'll bet your songbird sings like the nightingale, my lovely friend.

    I wanted to let you know that I am having a digital scrapbook giveaway if you are interested in that sort of thing. Here is the link to the post...


    Have a beautiful week, sweetie

  12. THis is just adorable! I love her dreamy expression and how her dress opens up to become a stage for a lovely songstress! And those birds...too cute!

  13. She's quite lovely. As she closes her eyes and sings to herself, I can hear the music clearly...

  14. p.s. I think "Incipient Wings" is a great name for a blog- I just love that phrase altogether!


thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it:)
