…And this time I mean it!

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!

  1. Thank you soooo much! I tried downloading pics of bleeding hearts from the net to trace and none of them looked right. Now I can try again. I love the cyclamine too. Heck, I love them all! I just painted a rose and it was the best I have ever done. Even Hubz gave it a thumbs up. LOL


  2. I tried to watch a video yesterday on youtube and it did the same thing you describe that happened to yours.When I watched it at the source it was ok.


    1. I had to re send the video, it has happened to me one time before and I think my computer lost power when it was uploading, glad it is working for you Emilie:)


      1. this was someone else’s video. I never had that problem with any of You tube videos before. i have to watch and pause while I work with them so I download.


  3. You make everything you do look so easy. Your flower is beautiful! After watching your video, another video came up that caught my interest. It was a tutorial on “fun things to do with your hot glue gun”, which is right up your alley. She made faux enamel dots by making a circle with her glue gun, and painted them with sharpies. You can even paint them with nail polish.


    1. I have a video doing the exact same thing from 5 years ago LOL! I used alcohol ink to color mine though:)


      1. I  probably still have that one. Love those ideas. My son couldn’t figure out why I have so much nail polish when I don’t polish my nails. What nails? lol


Tell me what YOU think!
