Mini Journal Video Tutorial:  What do you get when you mix the new Art to the 5th Art Fusion Stamps with Art Pops™ Cards?  You get a cute little mini journal that you can drop in your purse, the perfect gift to share or keep near the phone or computer for note taking.  Hope you find it inspiring!

Journal Bound Workshop - Showcase your gathered mail art stash within two uniquely styled and bound journals. Get those mailed treasures out of your bins and into an artful display - journal style.

Together we will travel a step by step approach to creating a colorful grungy cover in my signature messy style. Then we will bind our art-filled journals using a simple and creative system that once quickly learned can be used repeatedly to create handmade art journals from here forward.

Don’t have a mail art collection? I will demonstrate an alternative using found papers. Beginners are welcome and encouraged in this workshop as each process is fully demonstrated to accommodate all skill levels. I even include downloads of my designs for your use.

So many possibilities, so much creativity. Pack your bags, we are Journal Bound!

Snap & Share Workshop - From Phone or Camera to Project - this video-based class gets those lovely photos off your camera roll and onto FOUR artsy mixed media photo projects perfect for display or gifting.  I will share with you the process I use to prepare my photos to send off to my local printer or print at home and/or my favorite online sources.

Step-by-step video tutorials take you through the process of creating these four artful projects. Follow along in my style or in your own - your choice. These projects are especially designed for any skill level. Beginners will be comfortable while advanced students can take off and make these as detailed as they desire. This class is for everyone, yes, YOU!

You've Got Mail...Art! Workshop - Imagine opening your mailbox and finding a splash of color and pattern.  This is no ordinary envelope! You pull it out to reveal a work of whimsy and art sent by someone who clearly holds you dear.



You've Got Mail…Art!


In my largest and most requested class, we will explore Art That Travels. From a quick anytime project to mail art that transforms into a hidden gift, we will create fifteen pieces of art requiring postage. This workshop is improvisational and free spirited…with a more non-linear approach. You will see my entire process while I "think" through steps and change my mind and direction as new ideas come.  Be inspired by file folders, fabric, recyclables, paint, photos, envelopes, catalogs, patterned paper and cardboard in wildly inventive ways.  You will never look at mail the same way and you may never send another naked envelope again!



Join me in this MEGA class containing 18+ videos, painty project downloads I have created just for you, and inspiring links.  You will soon be creating joyful moments at mail boxes all over your corner of the world!
