Its MY Turn for the Blog Hop!! Woo-Hoo!!

Artful Gathering Event Registration is Open!

I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop!

Follow along with me for fun, creativity, and a chance to win a
$200.00 e-gift card from Jerry's Artarama!

I will be teaching my fabulous premiere video workshop at
The Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat 2012
Make Every Minute Count Art Doll
Session Two
July 15th-August 25th

Let's make every minute count in this very special workshop where you will learn how to create your own 16" free standing doll. You will begin the class by constructing the base of the doll and then move on to a lovely vintage style dress made out of layered muslin, fabric, and gauze. It will be embellished with vintage buttons, findings, and thread. You will then distress the head and arms using a Crackle technique. But that is not all! I will show you how to make the center of your doll extra special because inside the belly of the box, you will create a unique one of a kind heart centerpiece! The dolls arms will come to life with rusty springs that extend out of the box, oh so beautiful! Once all the components are finished you will begin assembling, creating a unique one of a kind ART Doll.

Cat, how exciting....YOU are the featured Artful Gathering instructor!! I love your art is nothing like I have seen before. I really like how you have added techniques that involve everything from fabric to learning a new crackle finish! The doll looks quite tall and will certainly be the heart of whatever room she is placed in. Looks like a great one to watch over one's studio. :-)
