Hello Friends! Whew, what an odd day, firstly it was nearly 70 degrees, I woke up at 5:30am and turned on the news and the weather man said it would be 68 today! Well I hopped out of bed, got the coffee started and jumped in the shower because there was no way I was going to miss a second of a warm spring day! I decided I wanted to paint something springy so I did a rose in watercolor, and shot a tutorial of course. But, something funny happened to my tutorial during its journey through cyberspace, it changed from a 17 minute drawing and painting tutorial to a 48 minute jerky video with no audio, it was the weirdest thing. I have to say it was probably much more relaxing to watch me paint without the yammering on though. I asked a few people to watch it to see if it was just me but alas no, the problem was widespread, unfortunately it was already live when I noticed this so I made the video private in hopes that the video would fix itself (it’s the same philosophy I have when my car acts funny, leave it be and hope it works itself out LOL!) but it was clear that the team of highly trained monkeys that keep my YouTube channel running were unable to fix this so I rechecked my video (fine on my end) and uploaded it again. So here you go, let’s paint a rose and this time I mean it! 😀
Also today I worked on illustrating some flowers from past videos. I had a couple of viewers ask for digital stamps of the flowers that I have demonstrated in my free painting tutorials and I thought it was a great idea so here is my new Spring Flowers digital stamp set:
Currently I only have this up at MyGrafico. I have been having some trouble with my Shophandmade shop (me, technical difficulties? no way.) and my team of highly trained monkeys are busy maintaining my YouTube channel currently so what are you gonna do right? I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial despite having to wait for it. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
