Good morning lovely friends!!
Its time for a giveaway!
I am super excited to be one of the teachers in this years 21 Secrets art journal playground. and my mind has been racing with all of the possibilities of things I could teach. When Connie asked me if I would be one of the teachers in 2013 I was over the moon and immediately started thinking about what I could share with you all.
I am not specifically a journal artist as I normally work LARGE but this past twelve months, much of it spent on the road, I have been spending more time in my journal AND I was lucky enough to attend a weekend workshop by the awesomely talented Orly Avineri who is, in my humble opinion one of the most exquisite journal artists around!
Here is some of the work I did at her workshop. If you ever get the chance to learn with Orly DO IT!! :))
You will love her!
For my 21 Secrets class I decided to offer you a class titled "One thing leads to another": as that pretty much sums up how I work, whether on a gynormous canvas or an itty bitty scrap of paper I play and I play and then I wait to see what comes. Sounds like fun huh? Yesterday I played with no expectation of outcome and ended up with.......
some flowers in a mug....
an elephant to add to my growing collection....
and a slightly crazy eyed owl.......kind of how I was feeling at the end of this three hour painting frenzy!
SOOOO this week I've been filming like crazy, taking you on an inside tour of my studio
and in a way, taking you on an inside tour of my head! Well at least my creative process :))
Be warned! I don't do pretty letters, I don't use rulers
but I do use my heart
and my intention is to help you use yours.....
Oh and to end up with pretty hands like this!
I wont spill the beans on everything I am offering but we will be looking at the beauty of your very own unique mark and how to express it.
I hope you'll join myself and Connie and all of the other awesome teachers in 21 SECRETS beginning next month!
This month Connie has generously offered me one FREE class to give away to a lucky winner here on my blog!!
