Let’s Paint Lupines!

Hi friends! Wow, it’s Friday! I had such a busy week! I taught 3 art classes at my local library in collaboration with my town’s Olde Home Week (you know it’s fancy when you add an “e”!) Both watercolor classes were packed which was so nice, I hope my students return next month when OHW is done. This was my first idea for class but I was not happy with it…

So I reduced the size and went with a simpler plan for a class of beginners and it was good I did because every one finished in the nick of time, right before the librarian was about to kick us out ha ha!

Do you want to try it? Here is the card tutorial.

Go ahead and flip the orientation and make it bigger if you like. I posted the larger photo in case you wanted to give that a whirl. The larger one has more of a focus on a couple flowers in the front but it is pretty much the same thing. I had the children’s watercolor class make the bigger version with focus on the flowers and they did fantastic! All my students did, I really hope the join me again next month. Thanks for painting with me today and til next time happy crafting!

Learn to Paint for $1!

Howdy folks! I am so excited to share some news today! I am now offering painting packets at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. I love to paint and I am happy to share what I know with you. My first offering is a lovely birch tree painting that anyone can paint in an afternoon:

You get a multi-page PDF file with 20 step by step photos and simple, clear instructions. You can print it out or follow along on your computer screen. In addition you get  a hi-res jpg of the finished piece so you can print it out and study it while you paint. Normally my painting kits will run between $3-$5 but since I want everyone to try this I am running an introductory special so you can snag it for $1.

If you do give it a try I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
