Oodles of Doodles News! Pumpkin Pretzels, Who's Your DaDa, Color Box Chalk Inks and Paper Wishes Webisode, Hat Day Witch Hat, Onsie Idea!

Hello Fellow Doodlers!

It's that time of year to post fall stuff! Woohoo! Officially "The First Day of Autumn" begins on Saturday, Sept. 22nd and I'm feeling SO ready for the holidays! I can't wait to share a list of fall and Halloween fun with you guys during the next few weeks. In our house we are huge pumpkin fans, and I'm not just talking pumpkin pie here. I've been eyeing all the fall items at the stores and it almost feels like Santa's here already! Seriously I'm that crazy for the stuff and who wouldn't love chocolate and pretzels and pumpkin ... plus the look of orange "treats"? Make-Bake-Celebrate has the recipe to tempt-your-taste-buds with her Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Pretzels and step-by-step how-to photos!
Polymer Clay Halloween Witch Art Doll (and an assortment of other figurines), by Lisa J. Ammerman, are handsculpted from polymer clay and one of a kinf dolls. Lisa doesn't use molds to make her figures - each is indvidually handsculpted. Her original works of art are intended for decorative purpose only, and are not toys.

Inspired by the "Dada" notion of making art from materials that would not typically be combined or expected to go together, and driven by a similar sense of irony and humor, this exciting book by Linda and Opie O'Brien shares their unique approach to making mixed-media dolls. It is not only a "must have" volume for anyone interested in found object art and the human form, it is a thoughtful and provocative exploration of the power, symbolism, and cultural significance of dolls and representational figures.
The authors share detailed techniques for using surface embellishments, creating faces, heads, and limbs, using molds and molding products, and building and transforming disparate objects into whimsical, inspiring dolls. Starting with a variety of substrates—a wood block, a canvas, a tin can, a book, and a box construction—readers are guided step by step through five types of doll constructions.
Complete instructions for making a box construction doll, a wood block substrate doll, a two-sided canvas frame doll, a tin can doll, and a book doll Numerous variations on each of the core projects for further experimentation An inspiring gallery of mixed-media dolls from leading artists who discuss their methods and share their very personal answers to the question: "What is a doll?"
