Christy Tomlinson... The She Art Workshop

Christy Tomlinson

Is a 3 week e-course the begins February 28th! In this workshop, I'll be learning how to create unique and detailed  "she-Art" girls, as seen in Christy's art and mixed projects. I will also be taught how to create backgrounds, textures, and layering styles on canvases and other surfaces! I am beyond excited to be taking part in this class. 

I have stacks of canvas, bottles of paints and at least 3 mason jars of brushes to play around with. I have been searching around for oodles of goodies to play with. A friend even brought me a vintage newspaper from France that is dated 1941! I can't wait to use pieces of it in my work.

Christy's work has inspired me for ages now and when I saw this chance to take a course by her, I couldn't jump quicker. 
I'm positive this won't be the last time I chat about her and her workshop.
Have you ever taken a workshop? Did you enjoy it?

Another gal that I am constantly listening to is PINK.
There is something about how raw she writes that strikes a nerve within me.
I love sitting back on my bed or at my desk and cranking her music while I create.


I am beyond LOVING this woman's voice!
The jazz blues range she has and I admit, her English accent draws me in as well.....stunning.
I've been playing her videos steady for the last few days now and just picked up her cds over the weekend
Have you heard her? What do you think?

Kim Klassen's PhotoShop Skinny- Mini

As I have mentioned a few times over the last little while, I'm trying to really LEARN all I can about my camera and what I can create with it. I have been taking photos everyplace I can imagine. Different angles and so on. A friend of mine told me to check this website out. She thought it would be something I'd find highly useful in my new passion. WOW....was she ever right!

Simple instructions on how to use Adobe Photoshop to add texture and depth to my photographs.
I am quickly becoming addicted to textures. OH MY! There aren't enough words to describe the fun that can created. I will be sharing my own photos soon showcasing the tips and steps that Kim shared. I am so excited.

Take this course......not only is it incredibly easy to follow and's FREE!


Guy's Frenchy's

I've been working at Guy's Frenchy's for just over a month now and LOVE IT! The hours work perfectly for me and the gals are fantastic that I work with. I sort clothes right now and in the next few months will be trained for on cash too.
