Sample Journal

Hard at work on the Nile Journal... I wanted to share page 1 so here it is...  I hope this gives you a better idea of what the class will be like.  And yes, I promise you can do this without having ANY ability to draw!!

New Class Series

I am working on a new series of classes that I'll be teaching at Stamp Your Art Out in Blue Ash in the Spring.  Have you ever seen those beautiful travel journals created by artists, a combination of drawings, watercolor paintings, and written travel memories?   Here is your chance to travel through time to exotic places without worrying about dysentery, bandits or extra baggage fees.  I'll teach you tricks to add drawings to your journal without being able to draw!  Our journals will come to life by combining tracing, collage, watercolor, stamping, and many other techniques.  We'll fully immerse ourselves in our fun destination and learn something along the way! 

Watch for more information....

Too many holidays

Another great kid quote, this time from my 6 year old nephew, Jack...

My sister, Allison, said her boys were telling her how they learned about Hanukkah at school and how it started this week on Thursday.

Jack:  "There are a lot of Holidays this week, Mom."
Allison:  "What other holidays are this week?"
Jack:  "Well, Monday was a holiday."
Allison thinks about it for a few minutes and then has to give up and ask, "what was Monday?"
Jack:  "It was an online holiday, Mom."
Allison:  "You mean Cyber-Monday?"
Jack:  "Yeah, that's the one!"
