Autumn is my favorite season of the year! All around us the leaves are turning gorgeous colors and the wind has a little nip to it. We will be deep in winter before long!
The best way to beat the winter blues and fill your days with joy is to do ART, right? So to make sure you are all stocked up for the chilly months ahead we are having our annual 5 DAY long SALE!
The brilliant part about our classes is that they are all self-paced, downloadable and you get lifetime access. So no worries if you don’t have time now – your classes will be waiting for you!
With the holidays just around the corner, our classes make the perfect gift for a friend or relative OR think about creating ART as gifts for those important people in your life. Nothing could be more special!
I’ll look forward to seeing you in class!

Happy Friday! On this gorgeous summer day, I’m excited to share with you that the lovely and talented Galia Alena asked me to be a contributing teacher to her new online Photography workshop – Camera Craft! Of course, I accepted!
Here’s the workshop description straight from Galia…
Camera Craft is designed to help demystify your camera and the technical side of photography, empowering you to follow your inspiration, and make expressive and beautiful images. It is photography 101 and it is so much more. I want the participants to walk away feeling like they have enough of a grasp of the technical stuff that they can really let their creative voices sing. Between all the samples and the guest contributors you wont be able to help but be inspired.
I’m so very thrilled to be a part of this AMAZING course!
Photography, as many of you know, played a huge role in leading me back to my creativity. Essentially, it led me back to what I love – ART – and for that, I’ll be eternally grateful to this magical art form! The class will actually be divided into two 5 week modules – “The Art of Seeing” & “Into the Light”. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR BOTH.
The Art of Seeing starts 31st of August
Into the Light starts 26th of October
As a contributor, I will be sharing a few tutorials on some of my post-production editing, including a peek into how I edit photos on my iPhone! Super fun and addictive I assure you!
Galia has an incredible line up of contributors including, Misty Mawn, Danielle Cohen, Stacy de la Rosa, Liz Lamoreux, Jeannette Le Blanc, Erin Faith Allen, Eileen West and Ashley Fincham!
To learn more and sign up go here. If you happen to purchase from my link it would make my day too!
Thanks so much again for all your love and support!

Hello there! Hope all is well with you.
Today, I finally found a teeny bit of time to work on one of the lessons from the Kim Klassen Beyond Layers class and I must say, it was so very delightful to have a moment of creativity! Our assignment for today was to use this lovely photo (provided by Kim)…
and rework it however we choose, using textures, layers and any other editing goodies. Here are two versions of mine…
I used Photoshop for my editing, layered several textures and used some fun brushes to get these effects. Of course, I had to add a French label to the bottle in the first one! ;) Okay, I hear my Claire-Bear waking up so I gotta leave you but I promise to be back soon!
p.s. Thanks to Kim for all the inspiration and encouragement. If you are into photography and you haven’t been to Kim’s blog, I highly recommend you visit!
