Bonus project for Lifebook

I'm so thrilled to let you know that I'll be doing a bonus project over on the LIFEbook online class. You still have time to sign up. This particular project will post sometime in August.

Bunny Party
heal from within
create your own party with a bunny
eat cupcakes
pick tulips
reach out to those in need
wrap your magic scarf of love around them

treat each day with magical eyes
seeing wonder in the small
sprinkle hearts
and light your candle of love

MATS Class

When I got the email from Beth, (a sweet, creative friend who I met at "An Artful Journey" back in 2010)
that she was hosting a an online class with the amazing Lilla Rogers as our fairy art
God Mother....I knew that I wanted to sign up. MATS is short for "make art that sells". Its really all about exploring areas of the licensing arena and which one you feel that your engaged to create for. It was really helpful in helping me decide what I area I was most drawn to. I think I had the most fun in the wall art design piece. Simply because this was more in line with my comfort zone and how I'm used to working. But the other exercises really pushed me into new ways of thinking and how you can take bits and pieces of your art and create something pretty magical in photoshop that lends itself to the product better. 

With the children's book cover and the pencil case design, I feel I grew in ways I wasn't expecting. I cannot say enough great things about the class. And guess what there is a part 2 to this offering....Make Art that Sells - Part 2! - starting in October.

I have met so many inspiring artists in the MATS Facebook group. Their work is out of this world and everyone is super supportive and cool.
