I love on-line art classes.If you follow me you know that over the years I've taken many classes and have posted what I've learned. My friends also know that I dabble in many different creative genres. My favorite is mixed media art.
Recently one of my friends, Pam from Cloth To Creation, told me about an amazing doll artist who has posted video classes on how to make " A Shrine Angel Doll." The other amazing thing about the class is that it is free. Those of us who have paid for classes know the more in-depth the class the higher the cost.
The doll artist, Daryle Cook, has created a new site called Cloth And Clay Doll Makers. He has step-by-step videos on how to create the Shrine Angel Doll mentioned above. He also is in the process of creating another free class on making a "Book Faerie." Click on the link to see the trailer about the class.
I'm watching his videos and in the process of making my first mixed media O.O.A.K. art doll. I'm enjoying it very much. Here are a few photos of my progress so far.

Now, if all that giving isn't enough Daryle also has a fantastic monthly "Give-Away." I was so blessed to have won his March treasure. On Good Friday, I received Daryle's "Hope Angel." Click the link to visit Daryle and his wife, Katie, at Woodstown Whimsies to read about his Angel of Hope. Click here to check out the free video classes and the new Cloth and Clay Doll Makers.

Telling a powerful story and a message of hope.
By the way, my dear friend, Pam, has also made a Shrine Angel Doll. Click on her blog link above to see her O.O.A.K. doll story. Here's a clue, she loves birds.
Thank you so much Daryle for the Hope Angel and this wonderful new journey.
I'm linking this post to Pink Saturday. Beverly asked for anything pink or any Spring message. The Angel Doll carries a beautiful, powerful Spring message of hope.
