Mixed Media Stump/Art Doll Tutorial.  This multi-part tutorial shows you how I make my mixed media art doll, using Creative Paperclay, an old magazine, masking tape and all the art and craft supplies I have on hand.  As with all my tutorials, these are suggestions, jumping off points.  I recommend using the art and craft supplies you have on hand.  With one exception: the air drying clay.  I recommend the following clays for these art dolls: Creative Paperclay or LaDoll Air Dry Stone clay.  I started making these stump dolls with Sargent’s SculptIt air dry clay. It is very difficult to: work with and get fine facial details.  It also cracks rather badly.  Creative Paperclay and LaDoll also crack as they dry but both re-activate to varying degrees, which allows you to repair the cracks seamlessly. Both cost between $10-15 for a 1 lb block, which gives me 3-4 of these dolls.

Jumpstart Journal Class pdf handout: Lesson 1: Getting Started with Backgrounds. The class pdf file Jumpstart_Journal_2015_Lesson_1.pdf includes written instructions on the techniques from the class as well as links to Teesha Moore’s youtube videos on making her 16 page journal. I really enjoyed the class and seeing how everyone created their pages. Here are the photos from the class. I have 2 goals for this class: design the rest of the lessons and make video tutorials.20150125_143717 2015-01-25 14.32.16 2015-01-25 14.33.35 2015-01-25 14.36.32
