This Girl Can Teach!!! Suzi Blu

Here is my first drawing using Suzi Blu's techniques

I have been a teacher of creativity and painting for many years...and I recently signed up for a class at Suzi Blu's Les Petit Academy...and blown away i am!!! A little unorthodox, but Suzi Blu is so right on in her teaching methods...I am taking the Goddess & Poet class now and there is still time to join in the fun!!!

And for a different take on faces come take my Art of Doodle Portraits class that begins August 9...I will teach you how to draw a doodle face in less that 10 minutes!!! I also teach PhotoShop classes for Mixed Media artists and Bloggers, Creativity classes and the Business of Being an Artist. My other blog for artists learning to make a living doing what we love.

2011 Diary Project

I am participating in the 4th 2011 Diary Project. You can too!!!

New size: 8½" x 7". Each date will be designed by a different creator and will be printed on a high quality, opaque, recycled paper. There wil be 2 dates in each page, 3 notes pages, 7 address pages, 12 months pages, 1 introduction pages, 1 year pages, a 2012 page, and 7 positive message design. Total: 208 pages, with 397 different designs. Some covers will have a design, and some will be plain, to decorate it as you like.

There will be also the CD version that will contain the complete pdf file, ready to print, with instructions.

With the CD, you go to a photocopy center and you ask for the quantity of book you want, with the paper of your choice, the cover color of your choice, the color spiral of your choice.

New for this year

The book will be printed with recycled paper and some will have a design on the cover.
