New on-line class available now!

Finally my new on-line class is good to go! Yay! I'm so excited to share this with you :-)

 Here's the blurb....

In Journal Soup 2 we will continue our messy, playful, mixed-media journey in loose-leaf art journaling, or as I like to say, journaling outside of the journal ☺ Come and join me on this colourful art journaling adventure.
As the title suggests there'll be a bit of everything ... painting CHECK! drawing CHECK! mono printing CHECK! how to draw faces CHECK! whimsical houses CHECK! how to make an owl CHECK! step-by-step printable worksheets CHECK! downloadable background and collage sheets CHECK! self-paced learning CHECK! Oooh, I'm so excited to share this with you :-)
You will sent a link to a PRIVATE group on Vimeo where you will find 8 videos of 6 pages covering 6 different techniques, because as the name suggests I like to flit around from one technique to another. Why stick to one when there’s so much to enjoy? 

Videos are suitable for beginners and experienced alike. All pages are filmed step-by-step with extra on-screen instruction. You will need some basic computer skills and a high speed internet connection.
After purchase you will receive an invite via e-mail (PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL BE TO THE E-MAIL LINKED TO YOUR ETSY ACCOUNT) to the private Vimeo group. Vimeo is free to join and register as a member. Click on the link to join the group, and there you will find all of the videos plus a forum for comments, or for asking any questions etc. Please allow up to 48 hours for the invite to arrive (although it will most often be sooner). Although the videos are not downloadable I am aiming to leave them on Vimeo for a minimum of three years (till Sept 2017) although hopefully indefinitely, so there is no pressure for you to rush and complete the class ... just self-pcaed learning.

Journal Soup 2 differs from Journal Soup 1 in that each page is a separate video so it should be a little easier to find your way round. It is also bigger and better, and comes with lots of extras. The videos run for approx. 10 mins to 30 mins, almost 3 hours in total in manageable chunks. You will also be sent a pdf with details of all the pages and materials required, 4 step-by-step instructional handouts (designed by me) to assist in your drawing of houses, faces and people (yes, you CAN draw!) Also included are 2 x digital downloads of backgrounds and 2 x texture photos for you to use in your collage. Everything should arrive automatically from Etsy and then you just need to wait for the link to Vimeo via your e-mail...

I'm having a little give-away on my facebook page so go check it out! 

All the details can also be found here. 

Look forward to seeing some of you in class :-)
