Traveling journals update

Here is one more Journal, stopping by my house in its travels.
This one is from Ilona in Germany. Serious and pensive, like those photos from the 1800's when people should not smile at the camera.

And this is the page I made for Mary in Canada, the 5x7 journal: A bit quirky and has more texture.

Goodies!

Couple of weeks ago they had a gift bag at Aaron Brothers, so when i went to get paint, I ended up with a bag of goodies! I had been thinking of trying the indigo color from Golden, but I was hesitant, it is too dark. Well, now i have it, and for free! :oD
SO awesome! Just look at this yuminess:

 
There was also a larger sample paper but was too big for the pic. But there's ACEO size paper, a filbert brush (my favorite!) golden samples paint, a Pitt marker and coupons.
What I bought was the turquoise Lumiere, top left. 

Don't forget to enter my Giveaway for a chance to enter a free spot in any of my online classes, ends September 6th!

Are you getting my channel videos?

Tutorial: how to get YouTube videos from your subscriptions:

With all the changes YouTube made recently (and most likely will happen again), you probably noticed that you are not getting the videos anymore.
I made this tutorial so you get notifications on your inbox again.

As you go to your YT channel, click on the left panel. If you are visiting from a cellphone or mobile devise, you might have to click on their "see as website" link, found t the bottom of their screen.
Once you are in the left panel menu, click on "Subscriptions", it will take you to the list of channels you are subscribed to.
Then manage your subscriptions by clicking "Send me updates". Which will send to your email one notification per video, per channel.
You can decide "All activity" or "Uploads only", to get less emails.
Of course select my channel!   ٩(^‿^)۶
And that's it!

I do not post too many videos, in fact I am planning to do it more often, as time permits.

Party Hat Class




Now open!
The Party Hat class, which went live for the Soul Food lessons months ago, is now being offered separately, to watch at your own pace!

This class has a little bit of everything and the fun part of an online class is that you can watch it over and over.

What is in this class? 

    -Texture techniques.
    -Different ways to add color and paint.
    -Making a face from scratch.
    -Lesson on making stylized hands.
    -Use of different Mediums.
    -Fun with templates.



What do you need?
-Fast internet connection.
-Acrylic paint, mediums and brushes.
-Assorted templates and patterned paper.
A full list of materials will be given after joining the class.



How long is it?
It depends on each person. You can watch it all in one day, or take it easy and watch spaced for few days.Then watch it again if you like.

Where is it?
We will have our own space and registered members will have access and an invitation via email to the site after Paypal payment.



How much is it?
Only $46.00 USD.
Price might increase in the future.  Because of the nature of online classes and workshops, no refunds after the class has started.



To purchase: Click on BuyNow button (here or in the side bar) 
 Email me (top menu button)  to let me know you purchased the class. Sometimes paypal takes a while to send me a note. And check your junk/spam folder in case my email lands there!

Last of the Soul Food

The awesome live lessons of Soul Food are finished.  The rest will be self paced for those that joined, and I have to say, it was a great experience! From every point of view!
I made a little cartoon drawing for the ladies that took us all in this fantastic trip:
 Mystele, Heather and Jeanette.


I will be offering my class from there soon! Keep an eye for updates ;o)

Face in the World updates

My faces came back!
The 1st one on the left is Melissa's. The other 2 are mine, back from their travels overseas:


And this is what I added to the one I will mail this week: a crown and turquoise neck decoration, plus gold details. I also sealed the hair with medium.


I don't think I posted the one Anita started? It was mailed last week, I added more hair and a few touches to lips and eyes. I am planning to make a video slide with all of these ladies to see them transforming :oD
