And the winner is?

 

Congratulations Kristin, please email me as soon as you are able. 

And to all who took the time to comment, post links to your Facebook page, thank you. 

I invite those of you who have interest my my approach to keeping an artist’s journal to please sign up for my class. This is a video intensive 5 week (possibly 6) class that really picks apart all the different aspects of having fun with art supplies, layering techniques, drawing and painting.

I would love the opportunity to work with you and to explore what you and your visual voice has to say. I will ask you to buy yourself flowers too! This is an added benefit of taking the class if you ask me! We all deserve pretty things to look at (and don’t worry, I have also taken loads of gorgeous photos for you to work from as well.

So please, sign up for my first journaling class today! I look forward to it!

Dream Journals

Dream Journal, new online class offering

I am putting the finishing touches on my first on-line journaling class Dream Journals and boy would I like to see you there. We will learn to use watercolors, resists, we’ll draw, paint, play and create journal pages that are richly layered and dynamic. All techniques covered in the class are taught in my book, Dreaming from the Journal Page, but that isn’t a required purchase. I do hope you might though!  The class stands alone, but also compliments and expands upon what is contained in the pages of the book. And beside that, we will be working in community with one another, helping and encouraging one another as we go.

The daffodil above, is an example of dry on dry watercolor painting, which is covered in two long videos (so far there are over 12 videos in all, more to come). Arrow to the left demonstrates the use of frisket as a resist. I will get you layering, building, drawing, painting and making pretty pages, using easily approachable techniques, in no time flat. I will get you drawing with fun and memorable warm up techniques, and if you have ever been heard to say, “I can’t draw”, you’ll prove yourself wrong.

And in order to get the word out about this new class offering, I would like to give away at least one spot in the class. 

Here is how it works:

1. Simply comment on this post to put your name in the hat.

2. To double your chances of winning, link to this post on your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, or your favorite social networking site. BUT, you will need to come back here and leave a second comment with a link to your post, for a total of two comments in your name. You are responsible for this (please don’t link to me on Facebook, as I won’t be able to keep track of that, the comments here are the easiest way from me to keep it simple) .

So please help me get the word out, will you? I will announce a winner one week from today, July 10, so please check back. Thanks a bunch.
