So excited about today.. for a few reasons! Remember a few weeks ago I posted about how grateful I was for the people and opportunites I met in California while I CHA? Well one of those lovley women was miss Jo Packham, Editor of the magaigine, of Where Women Create and founder of the Creative Connection Event ( oh and a bazzilion other accomplishments i don't have to mention!). Jo is just simply AMAZING. One thing I LOVE about Jo is her laugh. Honestly.. she just lights up a room and is so happy to be around! She is also simply brilliant! I want to be Jo when I grow up! If you haven't checked out her amazing sites.. you have to. It's booming with creativity and inspiration!
Well besides getting to meet this wonderful lady.. she also invited me to be a guest on the Where Woman Create Blog! I was sooo honored I about fell out of my chair when she asked me! So today I am guest on her blog! (thanks to her assistant Paige, for helping me with all the text and photos! YOU ROCK!). You seriously have to hop on over to her blog for two reason.. one: because I get to share with you my creative journey from the past 12 years .. and it's been a long one! lol but more imporantatly.. Jo is giving away 3 spots into my upcoming e-course, The She Art Workshop! And if that's not all, each winner will receive a $35.00 gift cerfiticate to the brand new Scarlet Lime mixed media SHOP! (which debuted yesterday!! YAHOO). So make sure to check the Where Woman Create blog today.. to get entered to win!
But before you go.. I have a few other things I want to share! (just three.. and I will be quick i promise!! :)).
First of.. if you haven't been there yet.. make sure to check out the New shop! So many fun things there for mixed media art.. and for the She Art Workshop!
And speaking of the She Art Workshop.. I know I have been teasing you all week about the She Art Workshop Sneak Peek!! For those of you taking the e-course or those of you still on the fence.. I hope you will enjoy this fun little vidoe I put together for you... hope it helps you get excited and inspired for this class to start!
p.s.. thanks to my baby brother for helping with the music and sound! All the music you hear is his original art! AMAZING! love you baby bro!
SO if you are still on the fence about taking the class.. you can read ALL about it here!
Now one more thing before you go! I have to share with you the art piece I created this week. I thought a lot this week about how crazy life can be sometimes! How sometimes you put something into action and it just turns into something bigger than you even hoped for! My word for this year was "leap" and I feel so free right now.. living that dream!
So I created this canvas.. and since i really loved this week's Monday Moodboard: Fresh Linens ... I kept it in the same color scheme.. and with the same feel.
It's a linen dress.. hanging out on the line to dry.... on a peaceful, sunny day
I also was inspired by my Thrify Finds from yesterday.. the lace on the vintage nightgown I found and the print on the linen skirt..
I covered the canvas with vintage paper and then washed over it with Memory Mist to create a light airy background for the dress to lay on. I feel free!
Well ...thanks for letting me share! AND THANK YOU AGAIN to Jo (and Paige) oh for having me as a guest on the Where Woman Create blog! So honored! And V.J. just love you bro.
hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
