Will be continuing the hobbit-style house colored pencil on Saturday @ 9pm. Friday we will do a paint-along, if we have enough participants!  Doesn't have to be paint, can be any media you decide to use (pencils, watercolor, even crayons!).  I present an idea, and you use your imagination!  Give it a try if you have the time!

Paint-along starts tomorrow at 9pm EST. Your inspirational pieces are going to be following the Valentine's theme I've had going this week. SO...plan to have on hand whatever your favorite valentine colors might be. Some will choose RED, others will lean towards pinks, but you choose whatever you'd like to use. Also, the medium can be acrylics, watercolor, colored pencils, whatever you'd like for this week. Since I didn't get this out earlier, I want to make it easy on everyone for their supplies. Questions? Let me know! And here's where to find me:

Decoupaged Heart for Your Special Someone!!

Just finished a stream on Twitch!  This lovely little piece is actually made from paper mache, purchased at Joann's, then decoupaged.  Covered with the lovely metallics, this piece turned out pretty special.  I hope you like it.

I also hope you will join me tomorrow evening as we do a paint-along session.  I will post the supply list this evening : )  (And, I'll try to have it much earlier for next weeks session.) Tomorrow evening, 9pm EST, hope to see you there!

New Paints Ordered!

I don't know if you have seen yet, but Deco Art has some new paints out, and I haven't gotten the chance to try them yet!  Just put my order in for them today, so I'll let you know when they arrive!

They have some new Chalky Finish paints, some awesome new colors, that I can't wait to try.  You can't go wrong with the Chalky's, as they make everything look just plain awesome!

I've also been getting my deck ready to re-do.  Of course, this involves a bit of cleaning ahead of time, so I am doing this in-between these lovely storms we've been experiencing here lately in the South. (WHERE are they coming from!?)

I mentioned the deck because Deco Art has a new line of Color Stain paints, I am I hoping they will look GREAT out there!!  I can't wait to see what they look like.  I'm thinking of a mosaic-style painting, leading a faux rug painting right into the front door...well, we'll see!  (I'll show you as soon as I have it done, too!)

Anyway, I just wanted to touch base and let you know that I am still around!  You'll be able to see MORE of me, soon, as well!  I am going to be starting up a channel on Twitch Creative!  where I will stream LIVE!  So, if you have any suggestions for projects you'd like to see me do on there, or ideas, please send them to me!  It is interactive, so you can ask me questions while I am streaming.  I'm very excited about this, and can't wait to give it a try.

Also, I will be capturing my video streaming, and put them into video's for YouTube.  So, if you can't catch me live, you'll still be able to watch the videos.

Have a great day my creative friends!!  And, stay tuned for my schedule of events, to be posted soon!
