Create with Me, Series 2: Art Journal

Hi ho art friends!

Please join me for the 2nd Create with Me series, where we are going to make an art journal from 1 piece of 15″x20″ 140 lb cold press watercolor paper and 1 piece of kraft paper the same size.¬† In the first video of this series, I’ll also explain my plan for this journal. I’ll update this post as I create new videos.

For Part 1, you need the paper listed above, white gesso, a scraper/old credit card, scissors, metal rule, awl, tapestry needles, waxed linen thread, bone folder.

Happy creating!

Stump Doll Video Tutorial

New Art Doll Tutorial featured post

Hi ho friends.

I have posted the first in a series of video tutorials on how to make a 6″ tall, mixed media stump style art doll. ¬†Click this link to go to my Freebies/Tutorials page.

I don’t yet know how many videos will be in the tutorial, since I’m filming as I make the doll and have to adhere to the Youtube 15 minute limit (‘cuz I have a free account).

Here are the supplies for video Part 1 of this project:

  • An old magazine
  • Masking tape
  • A small oval shaped item to trace around. You can freehand it, if you like.
  • heavy cardboard (not corregated – it’s too soft)

I’ll add to the supplies list as I add videos.

April 22, 2017: Part 2 has been added. In this segment: the head is made, attached to the body, and then sealed with gesso.

Happy crafting!
