Let's Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I hope you had a restful and healthy holiday time! We had a lovely time (mostly) of plenty of ups (Christmas, yaaaay!) and downs (my 11 year old car literally died and we were forced to go out and buy a new one the same day...turns out you can't have 3 kids with no working family car ). But alas, we are pushing the drama behind us and away we go into the new year!!
I am kicking off 2019 with fresh new splashes of inspiration as I begin to reach outward to other artists more and more to see what they're up to and see also if they'd be interested in sharing their talents with US!! The first artist on my list? James Burke!!! He is Australian (now living in the US), extraordinarily talented (that's an understatement) and said YES when I asked if he would share some of his ideas with us on YouTube (OMG!!!)! I can honestly say, after doing this collab, I can die a happy girl. I'M SERIOUS!
Yesterday he shared with us a REALLY FUN mixed media collage (art journal) technique on YouTube! With a fun mix of tracing paper, collage elements and Posca Pens (with a few loose watercolors thrown in for good measure) he shows us how to make some REALLY funky and FUN pieces to create on canvas in our art journals!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
