Here is a sample of one of the rooms I worked on.

Here is a preview courtesy of Amazon of one of the dollhouses in the book. 
Tally Oliveau is a collage and mixed media artist and has been widely published in Somerset Studio, Belle Amoire, Somerset Memories, and Somerset Home. Tally is the president of Papier Studio, a greeting card company. Her artistic cards are sold in stores all over the country. She lives and teaches in Los Angeles, CA.

Julie Molina is a collage and mixed media artist. She has been published in several of Stampington’s publications including Somerset Studios Magazine and her work is included in 1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol. Julie lives in Los Angeles, CA.
I was fortunate to have been invited into a dollhouse group by Tally and Julie. They had the idea of getting a group of artists together to create several mixed media dollhouses. We chose themes such as an undersea house, and a castle among others. Each person was assigned one room of each house. We worked on this over the course of a year. Each month we finished our rooms and mailed them off to Julie. With hard work and determination Julie and Tally found a publisher - Quarry Books and it's about to be available in bookstores March 1. I can't wait to see it! Thanks Tally and Julie for including me in a project that was challenging and fun.
