Daisy and the mysterious photos

Daisy returns from her shooting the sky photo shoot and begins printing photos and paging through her photo album.

Daisy and newspaper article

First shoe dropped. The second shoe will drop next month when Daisy meets a mysterious stranger and her adventure begins in full.

I’ve avoided using words within the story, but the central mystery is complex enough that I finally had to throw a few of them in there.

One wall I’m now banging up against is that I really want something more like a comic book format where you can easily add small panels together and define the flow in a more naturalistic way. I’m just accepting that that’s one skill too many at the moment, but it seems to be what the adventure needs to be less clunky in the storytelling.

A question to those that are following. Did today’s adventure make sense? Does it make clear where Daisy’s journey is going to take her?



In my (almost) 60th year on earth I decided to set my fashion dolls free of their clothes and accessories and send them on adventures. This is your window onto my own adventure into a land of crafts where I have zero skills, talent or mentors. Wish me (and my dolls) luck!

  1. I think Daisy is the toddler? Nonna is her grandmother? Her mother is missing from the picture? I love the way you are doing this, by the way. I’m inspired to try something similar and am also grappling with how much text to add or whether to just use photos, so I’ll be following with interest.


  2. Yes, it’s absolutely clear, much text isn’t necessary in this case. An interesting story, and the pictures are great, I love how you did the newspaper clipping and the photo album!
    And by the way, the protagonist is beautiful, I really like these dolls 🙂 .
