FREE Mixed Media Art Journaling Video

Hello my creative friends!

How’s the week treating you so far? I meant to get this to you yesterday but I’m afraid I got a little tied up wrapping the videos for the Paint & Pixels Online Workshop! I’m SO excited for class to begin! Not too much longer now…Sept 14th! If you haven’t checked out the info on this Mixed Media & iPad Art class yet…go here for more info.

So anyways…today is my birthday and in the theme of celebration, I wanted to give you a special treat! I’ve made a lovely FREE  Mixed Media Art Journaling Video for you – documenting my creation of the spread below. It’s full of teaching and tips to get you creating in your art journal too! Plus, my little studio kitten, Leo makes an appearance. He is quite the art admirer. ;)

I’ve been exploring Art journaling recently and it’s been so enjoyable. What a wonderful way to explore, experiment and play all within my beautiful vintage ledger.

Create Art on your iPhone

Hello! How is everyone doing?

Life has been hectic around here but it’s all good! I’ve been busy working on getting my first online Mixed Media & Encaustic class launched! It was a fantastic success and I am so beyond grateful to have a wonderful class of artists! You should see the work they are already creating! Blows me away!

But…I’ve also had other things in the works!

The lovely Jeanne Oliver has invited me to create a new class for her abundant online creative network and I couldn’t be more pleased to oblige!

So, I’ve decided to create another digital art class – but this time for the iPhone – called Mobile Art Magic!

static1.squarespaceSo what’s all this about you might ask? Well let me tell you a little about the class

Our iPhones have become an integral part of our daily lives. We carry them with us at all times – we don’t leave home without them! So…why shouldn’t we be using them creatively too? You can make beautiful, rich art right on your iPhone! Sure you could play Candy Crush….OR you could use your passion for Art and create something you love!

Expand your knowledge of color, experiment with composition and use your own photography to compose stunning, layered pieces of ART! Print them out and hang them on your walls!

Here are a few of the creations I’ve made using only my iPhone!

From landscapes to self-portraits! Don’t underestimate the power of that iPhone in your pocket!

This one week course will give you the knowledge of which apps to use and how to combine them to achieve gorgeous results!

I’m so excited to be launching this class on Jeanne’s wonderful network.

Early Registration will begin July 7th, 2015 and the class will open September 21, 2015!

Much love to you all! Keep creating!

She shares all about how she uses the iPad to not only create gorgeous digital art but how she incorporates it into here artistic practice as a learning and exploratory tool.

Her teaching video shows you how she takes a sketch from her easel, into her iPad to make corrections and changes and then how she applies that new knowledge back to the original sketch! Very cool!! Go take a peek!
