Greetings my wonderful subscribers,

Are you ready to celebrate Spring with me! It’s Day One of our Spring Fever!

Spring is such a beautiful time to refocus your energy. While winter is reflective, Spring can be a time of fresh ideas, renewed energy and luminous light! It’s also a great time to show yourself love! So today I have a fun self-portrait collage project for you.

This was my lesson for Lifebook 2016 and it was such a delight to create! It is all about self-love and it’s entitled “Be Your Own Angel”.

Today, it’s yours in its entirety! I hope you enjoy…

***Please note this is a mixed media encaustic project but you can totally skip the wax layer if encaustic is not your thing!

IF you do choose to add the wax, I highly recommend you do this on a wood board or rigid substrate. I originally did this on heavy watercolor paper which made it rather fragile.

SPRING FEVER - DAY 2

 

Good day my fine creatives,

Hope you are all doing well! Let’s begin our Day Two!

Spring is such a magical time to get out in nature! Full of singing birds, flowering trees and baby critters! How can you not love it!?

Being inspired by nature is often so incredibly vital to artists. One artist that is also one of our fabulous guest teachers is deeply moved by the miracle of nature and this is seen in all she creates. Today, we are sharing the bonus lesson from her wonderful class, Upon Healing Wings!

I hope you enjoy creating with Donna Marie Buchanan

SPRING FEVER - DAY 3

Hello lovely friends! Did you enjoy that beautiful video with Donna Marie yesterday? So inspiring right? Let’s get going on Day Three!

Spring is a time for the celebration of life and throughout history it was a time for festivals of flowers and dancing! It makes me think of ballet dancers in soft pastel colors! So I thought, what a perfect day to share a full lesson from my class, Lovely Dancer!

SPRING FEVER - DAY 4

Hello there my friends,

I do hope your week is going well! We are already on Day Four of our Spring creativity celebration and I’m feeling rather playful today! I think we should take a peek into the fabulous class by Yvonne Morrell!! What do you say?
 

Let’s do some one line drawings with her! One line drawings and blind contour drawings are an excellent way to loosen up and freshen your portraiture style plus it’s really fun!

Hi there gorgeous artists,

Well….here we are - our LAST DAY of our Spring Fever! I hope you have been enjoying the free lessons and getting good and inspired! Today, I’m bringing you my mini lesson for Let’s Face it 2017!

This is a really fun mixed media encaustic portrait lesson and I do hope you enjoy it! Again, if you are not into encaustic you can skip the wax layer!

Hope you enjoyed that! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much for following along with our Spring Fever celebration. It has been so much fun to hear your feedback and see your creations pop up in the Facebook group!

This is the last day to enjoy the sale but I will keep these pages up for the entire month of April so take your time with the free tutorials!

Much love and gratitude to you all! Wherever you are in the world, no matter the season, I hope creativity is blooming in your life.
