My Color is Beautiful Art 2015 Blog Hop

*Please note art does not reflect what will be taught in the workshop, just samples of some instructor pieces.


Welcome to my day of the Blog Hop.

Words can't describe how excited I am about the up coming  My Color is Beautiful Art 2015 Mixed Media Workshops, hosted by Tiare Smith.  I, along with 7 other incredibly talented artists,  will be teaching an online workshop.  This is a first for me and I can't wait to get started. These workshops will be chalked full of colorful and creative projects backed up with a lot of positive energy and artistic empowerment.

 I love carving my own stamps. It's extremely satisfying to bring a sketch to life, in the form of a stamp,  There is beauty in the sometimes chunky and imperfect lines. I'm so happy that I will be sharing the  the art of  basic stamp carving with you.  For this workshop, you will receive a list of supplies and a drawing of what you'll carve.  I'll go over the basics of stamp carving, then show you a wonderful technique for using the stamp you carved.

Here's a few of  my favorite hand carved stamps.




Registration begins November 11, 2014 and the workshop starts in February 2015 (stay tune for the schedule line up)'.  I'm giving away a seat (that's all access folks) for the small price of you leaving a comment on my blog between now and November 11th. The winner will be announced on November 12th.   Click here to register.

Below is  a list of the blogs hopped before me, these women are amazing so please be sure you visit their blogs to see what they are teaching.  For another chance to win, visit Tiare's page. 



Next on the blog hop is Tiare Smith, she's up tomorrow, be sure to stop by.  Thanks for hopping through.

Until the next blog...enjoy!
