If that has you interested in what all these teachers are doing, come back here and register for 21 Secrets Fall to take in all 21 wonderful classes including mine where I do a class on Image transfer techniques with collage and paint!
It really does not take a lot to make me happy - really it doesn't! I find more and more that I am more interested in shopping for art supplies than I am for clothes for the house for my son. It's always about finding something new and interesting.
So last week, I hit the jackpot. You may not find this super exciting but I really did. I couldn't wait to get home and "play" with my new things.
Here are the pictures and I'll explain after.
No no - I am not joining the fashion industry lol lol
Here is the real reason I bought it. It is full of all kinds of sketches of girls in different poses - in fact - 300 different poses
(Not sure why they did them so light but that's why the pic is like that) So now when I want to draw my girls - either in my Watercolor Girls class or even my Paper Pretty Girls class I can have a reference to go to to draw them in different positions. I can draw them in 300 different positions lol lol.
The other great thing is that I bought this at Home Senses (Home Goods equivalent in the US I think) and I paid a whopping 7.99$
The next great find was this below:
Now I know - you may be saying okay what is it? It's a little box made to look like a file drawer (although it looks like wood here it is actually cardboard) and inside there are 30 index cards - which look very vintage, and there are 30 little blue envelopes for each card.
So what am I going to do with these you say? OMG I am full of ideas - I can use the cards individually in a collage, I can use them in my journal, I can include them in my Paper Kits for my kit club members, I can then use the box for filing, I can make postcards from them (sew on bits of fabric or just collage over the text) Lots and lots of ideas.
This find - wait for it - was a whopping 5.99$ - at Home Sense again!!
So the October Paper Kits are gone out! Have I told you how I love making these? Have I told you all the nice emails I've received from the members of the Kit Club on how much fun it is to receive one of these kits at their door every month?
Here are a few shots of the October kits that went out. If you are interested in becoming a member and you want to receive one of these kits each and every month right at your door (yes snail mail - yaaaaaaaa !) head over here to my Monthly Kit Club Page.
Just sorting through what I will include this month
All together now!
A few shots of the individual kits!
Oh yes and I meant to mention - I am not really much for themed kits, ie this month Halloween - so my kits are not Halloween inspired but I did include a small little Halloween token !
My one exception is Christmas! I will absolutely do Christmas themed kits in November - so that you can have everything in time for Christmas!!!
