The Holiday season is here and I can't believe it is almost 2017! I think it's true what they say... "time flies when you get older". This year has definitely flown by so I'm looking ahead to the new year with creative anticipation. My goal is to make more time for my art in 2017. More time to just play and explore!Read More
Do you sometimes struggle with getting past the blank page? I know I do. For the longest time I thought it was just me. But I now know all artists struggle with the blank canvas at times.
One way I get past the blank page is to just start adding color. I have multiple techniques that I use to accomplish this but I am super excited to show you a fun and easy way to do this as a contributing teacher to the Just Add Color class at Big Picture Classes! This is a wonderful class taught by Jasmine Jones and Wilna Furstenberg and 15 other talented contributors (and me).
I had so much fun creating my lesson for Just Add Color. Class starts tomorrow and I can't wait to see all the wonderful color ideas. I hope to see you in class!
I am so excited to share that I was asked to be a part of the wonderful StencilGirl Creative Team! I can not wait to get started sharing their wonderful stencils with you and all the creative things you can do with them.
I am honored to be among a group of very talented and inspiring women! Please be sure and check out the StencilGirl Talk blog for fun and inspiring tutorials every week. I'll be sharing there soon.
I also wanted to share an Artsy Dori student with you that I am so proud of! My biggest reason for teaching online creative classes is to hopefully inspire people to create. Anna, from Artful Stories, was so inspired from the Artsy Dori Workshop that she has made multiple Artsy Doris! They are BEEEUTEEFUL oh my goodness they are to die for!
Here's just one of the Artsy Doris that she created and is giving away! Yes, I said giving away! I am so tempted to enter the giveaway. LOL
To enter, first head over to StencilGirl where Anna has an inspiring post waiting for you and all the details to enter the Artsy Dori giveaway. They are truly beautiful notebook covers!
I am so blown away and proud of all my students who have shared their work. It truly makes my heart happy to see all the beautiful notebooks being created. And if you are wanting to create your own Artsy Dori, your can check it out here.
On of my favorite things to do is work in my art journals. I thought you might enjoy watching me work in one of my favorite vintage journals. I started without a plan and just worked freely and went with my intuition as I worked. It's all about playing and learning and making time for art.Read More
