First of all, many thanks for everyone who signed up for the She Art Workshop No 2! AND seriuosly.. thank you to everyone who posted last week on my blog post about Beautiful Heartbreaks.. wow.. reading everyone's stories and heartbreaks.. was soul filling.. if you know what I mean. ALways brings things back down to reality for me! I got so sick on friday.. strep throat and seemed to be doing better by saturday night (On antibotics) but then sunday came and wow. .it was like I was hit in the face with it all over again! so sorry if any of my vidoes from this week, I sound like a frog! lol such is life!
Julie Balzer is one amazing girl. I had her on a while ago and featured some of her art, books, workshops etc. Recently she came out with a line of stencils with Crafters Workshop.. and HOLY COW! can you say LOVE! of course I ordered just about every single one of them for our store.. (you can see THIS behind the art video (on our new fall suplies) where i show how I use a lot of them in projects.. )
But then a few weeks ago, she asked me to particpate in a blog hop this week using her Triangle Stencil along with some other very talented girls!
Of course I SAID YES! and it wouln't be christy style.. if I didn't do a how to vidoe on my creation right? Here is a look at what I did..I have had this on my mind latley.. and the words really have rang true to me for several reasons " she found trust in the unexpected". I talked last week about a hearbreak I was going through.. and its amazing how God seems to put people in your life exactly when you need them.. so I created this piece for her. I talk more about it and her in the video...
On this part of the canvas I used the stencil as a guide to doodle on some fun triangle art.
dont laugh at me in the video.. I kinda get a bit sidetracked a few times.. haha.. that's me! oh If you love this stencil, we do carry it in our shop HERE.
Okay.. so I know I have talked alot about workshops latley.. But guess what? I have a brand new mini workshop.. just in time for the Holidays! (mini on time and mini on the budget!)
