    Jewel’s Guide to Making a Photo Story

    Hello, doll lovers! I haven’t really been able to go outside lately because my allergies are really bad, but today I thought it would be fun to show you the elements I use when making a doll photo story! I’ve actually learned more about the “why” of my methods through learning about story lately, and I can now dissect my photo stories more properly. Hopefully, this can help you make some of your own photo stories. 🙂 Doll:   First, I usually start by figuring out which doll I want to use. I strongly encourage exploring the personalities of all your dolls, and a great way to do that is through a…

    Part 6, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Tada!!!!! The last part of “The Treasure of Lady Travier” is finally here! I hope you like it: I stared at Opal waiting for her decision to either abandon me for money or to stay and sit eternally with me. “I’m going with you, Miss Catalina,” Opal nodded. I stared blankly. Why did I not feel surprised? Catalina shook Opal’s hand, “I knew you’d see it the right way.” She turned to me. “Have fun rotting, Dexter Malcome.” Opal approached me, “Dex, this is what I have to do. I’m sure you know why.” I laughed, “Yeah, of course, you just had to do this to me again, because no…

    The Presumed Princess, A Photostory

    ‘Ello Mates. Jewel here! Can you BELIEVE it is almost Christmas?! It is so exciting! Next week, I plan to post a Christmas photostory, but I’m still having trouble uploading photos, so today I’ll be sharing the photo story I had made for Natalie and Emmie’s Fall Photostory Competition. The contest was sadly canceled with me being the only person that sent in a story that didn’t have to be disqualified, but they plan to possibly do it again maybe in the summer, so please consider entering it next year if you are interested! Anyway, this was my short audition story, using the prompts of “Rose” and “Princess”: Dear Diary, I’ve had an…

    Part 4, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey doll enthusiasts! Today is part 4 of the Treasure of Lady Travier. I’m not going to tell you which choice won the vote. You’ll have to see, but I will tell you that #1 had 0 votes! LOL,  It was probably way too cliche. XD Well anyway, here it is! I slung the bag over my shoulder and laughed. “Ah! This is perfect.” Julia raised an eyebrow. “How incredibly perfect,” I mused. “What’s so perfect?” She asked. “Ah, Miss Burdett, you do not know this girl like I do. For instance, did you know she has left me for dead multiple times?” “Dex?” Opal begged. “Oh, be quiet, Opal,” I told her. I…

    Part 3, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey you! I am posting this on a Wednesday because I was honestly too tired yesterday to post, but don’t worry, you still have 3 days to comment! Last part, option #1 won, so Dexter is going to meet Opal at the Tea shop! I hope you’ll enjoy this next part! <3 I decided, if Opal could give me any more information it would be in my best interest, so I decided to meet her at the Paris Tea Shop that night. When I stepped in, there she was waiting. I sat down. “There you are.” She smiled. “I see you bought me a cup of tea…” I sighed. “I’m nice…

I hope you like the photo story! Rebecca: Hello my public! Welcome to my Thanksgiving Game Show! I’m your host Rebecca Rubin! Rebecca: We have two contestants with us today:…

    Part 2, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey people! Ready to see which vote won from last week’s part? I’ll let you read it to find out. Also, I should have thought of this before, but if ever the vote comes to a tie I’ll be asking my sister to be the deciding vote. Next week I’ll be taking a break from the photo series for some sort of Thanksgiving post. Alright on to part 2! I turned back to Opal Davis. I took a deep breath. “Opal… listen… If we have to trust each other we both have to be trustworthy… and one of us has proven not to be.” There were a few moments of silence before she…

    Part 1, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey wonderful people! Today starts the beginning of my 1st “choose the way” photo story series! If you would like to know more about how it works, I strongly suggest you read my PREVIOUS POST. I’m not going to chat your head off today, so here it is! It was not unusual for me. I had worked with high society much in the past. I always felt comfortable around those type of people, because I was a person not easily intimidated. I liked my work, and besides, France was beautiful this time of year. When the maid walked me through the Mansion of Lady Travier, I felt nothing unusual. I was…

    Info on My New Photo Series Coming Soon

    Hey Peeps! Are you excited? I am! Finally, I am going to be starting up another photo series! This won’t be just an ordinary photo series too, because I’m going to try a very original idea that my dad gave me quite a while back (maybe when I was making the 30’s!). I guess I just became brave enough to try it. I’m pretty stoked. I know what your screaming in your mind at me. I can hear it through the screen. “WHAT IS IT, JEWEL! SPILL IT!” Ok, if you insist. 😉 My Dollnotebook original photo series idea is: A choose the way photo series. This might require some further explanation. Do…
