Hey Mixed Media Society member!! I'm SO excited you're here!!
❤️️Watch this week's Newsletter Hello Video from ME!!
If you've been following along with new lessons lately, you know we've been playing around A LOT with Tombow Dual Brush Pens in the Skin Tones Classroom! I don't know about you, but I've totally been loving more time with my Tombows!
👉Last week I released the 1-Hour lesson above and hope you enjoyed her! If you haven't had a chance to do this one yet, don't worry about it!! You are NOT behind. She will be right here waiting for you whenever you get around to it :) And... just so you know you get to use pretty much all the Tombows in the pack with this project!! Love it when that happens :)
👉This week, instead of doing a demo on YouTube with tips about how to eliminate streaking in Tombows, and which mixed media art supplies play nicely with them, I'm doing a PRIVATE video and only sharing this info with YOU!! Enjoy!!
First Club Happy Hour!
👉If you didn't join me this past Friday for our first Happy Hour (reformatted Office Hours), I'm hoping you can join us for the next one!!
Catch the replay here.
We went over Permanent vs. Water-Soluble art supplies, and specifically what happens to BOTH between layers 3 and 5.
We also discussed different ways to PREVENT smearing. I also did a live demo to test how Pan Pastels, Gelatos and Pentel Pocket brush pen reacted in the Hamburger system.
👉Need the link to your FREE eBook version of The Hamburger System for your own practice at home?
Here ya go! (how much does it rock being a club member?!)
I LOVE FREE STUFF & GIVING IT AWAY!!

What Else is Happening in August?!
As I shared last week, during the month of August, we'll continue our skin tone studies, but transition over to watercolor!!
You'll be receiving lessons from me, of course, but we also have not one, but TWO stellar watercolorists who will be guest teaching!!
The Celtic Collective's very own Lucy Brydon
and someone I've been fan-girling over FOR YEARS...
Yes the same Polina Bright who makes the watercolor brushes I use exclusively now! (By the way, if you want to grab one for yourself, enter the code KARENCAMPBELL and get 10% off your order!
Do be patient with delivery time because these gorgeous watercolor brushes ship from Australia. Trust me -they're SO worth the wait!!)

Let's help you get settled!!
The last thing I want is for you to feel overwhelmed.

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.
