looking back in my blog archives – I realized that I don’t put up blog posts like this very frequently. if my research serves me correct, my last ‘in progress’ post was in 2015! needless to say, I’ll work on sharing photos like this more often…
this is a small sampling of art journal spreads that are deemed ‘in progress’. each of these spreads are at various percentages of completion, but in my mind they are not done. from here, they will either be finished, forgotten and returned to later on, or abandoned in their entirety. only time will tell…
good morning, and happy friday! it’s finally here…my latest online class SPIRITS is now live and available for purchase! hop on over to my Etsy shop to snag a seat in class. a few other quick things to note:
+ SPIRITS is available at a discounted rate for this week only! starting may 6th, the class will return to its regular price.
+ Class bundles that contain SPIRITS will also reflect that early bird rate, again – for this week only! so take advantage of that early bird price for extra savings when you purchase bundles.
+ Be one of the first 20 students to enroll in SPIRITS and you’ll snag one of these! – UPDATE: THIS IS NOW SOLD OUT
alright, so there you have it. whew, I can’t believe it’s actually launch day and I’m putting this class out into the world. as I’ve mentioned before – Spirits has been a real labor of love (and my BIGGEST CLASS YET) – so I’m beyond happy right now to put it out there for all of you…
I’ll see you in class…xo
***UPDATE: wow you guys! the ‘spirit pack’ giveaway was gone in under 3 minutes! thank-you so much to those who set alarms, were up early (or in a weird time zone), and have purchased the class…your support means so much!! xo***
I just wanted to pop by here to remind you that my new online class SPIRITS arrives tomorrow morning in my Etsy shop at 8:00am pst! as I mentioned in the announcement post, I’ve got that ‘spirit pack’ giveaway for the first 20 students who enroll in the class…
The first 20 students to enroll in the Spirits class will receive a free ‘Spirit pack’ via snail mail. This includes a hand painted trading card from the artist (featuring a ‘spirit’), a die-cut sticker, fun packing tape bits designed by Roxanne, and a mini art print! (while supplies last, limited to the first 20 students only)
with the launch of SPIRITS, there will also be more online class bundle options available. these new bundle combos will also reflect that lower early bird rate for Spirits! basically, buy a bundle this week during the launch of Spirits to save more moolah and snag another one of my classes (like Creatures or Lyrical, or both!).
I’m so absolutely thrilled about this new class, and cannot wait to share it with you all. hopefully I’ll be ‘seeing you’ in class tomorrow!
no april fools happening here – I’ve finally put together a legit artsnacks unboxing video! hop on over to my youtube channel to watch me open up the box and create a journal spread with the supplies…
enjoy, and happy weekend! xo
happy monday! I just wanted to let you know that if you’re in so cal, I’ll be teaching two in-person workshops this weekend in the south bay. these classes are being held at a private residence located in el segundo this saturday & sunday. here’s a look at the line up:
saturday, march 25th – 10am-4pm
Art journaling meets illustration in this mixed media workshop “Cacti”. This class takes you through the process of creating a two-page art journal spread that uses succulents and cacti as a visual focal point. Through guided step-by-step instruction, you will build up a mixed media foundation layer using ephemera and acrylic paint. With a foundation layer complete, the class then further explores: planning a composition, the use of a split-complimentary color palette, observational drawing, and unique illustration techniques using both acrylic paint, ink, and/or watercolor.
“MINI ART JOURNALS”
sunday, march 26th – 10am-3pm
This art journaling class takes you through the process of creating a miniature, two-inch, mixed media art journal. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by binding and constructing our mini journals by hand. Once our mini journals are assembled, the class will then take you through a variety of individual techniques, prompts, and illustrations to apply within each 2-page spread! At the completion of the class you’ll have a fully altered mini journal featuring eight different miniature art spreads…
space is limited, but there’s still a few open seats! I would love for you to join me. shoot me an email to scope out the supply list and get more info: email@example.com
+ not local or cannot attend in person? join me online! I’ve got two online classes that you can join at any time and do at your own pace: ‘Creatures‘ & ‘Lyrical‘. and yes, the rumors are true…I have a new one in the works 😉 stay tuned!
as promised, I’m bringing you some photos and a video tour of mini journal #9! hop on over here to watch the video…
+ reminder: this fully altered mini journal, along with 3 others, will be available for purchase in my etsy shop TOMORROW MORNING @ 9am PST!
***UPDATE: THESE MINIS ARE NOW ALL SOLD!***
+ check out this vlog on my youtube channel, where I explain the backstory on this spread and how I know when something I’m working on feels ‘done’!
