“Got Teens?” Workshop

My friend and co-facilitator for the Teens Art Journaling Workshops – Susi Vasseur will be hosting a workshop series called “Got Teens” – it’s all about Navigating the Teen Years.

Join other like-minded proactive parents to discover:
• New ways to connect with your teen
• How to feel empowered as you elevate your parenting skills
• How to enjoy those important formative years
• The benefits of sharing ideas and solutions with others

It starts May 28th – if you live in the Lower Mainland you might like to attend Susi’s workshop! Click on the above link to find out more and sign up.


Where’s Violette?

On May 26th at 2 pm I’ll be demonstrating Art Journaling at Opus Art Supplies in Langley It’s free – you’ll see me lettering, creating colourful backgrounds, collaging as well as incorporating photos onto the journaling pages.

On June 1 and 2nd I will have a booth at the B.C. Home School Convention at the TRADEX in Abbotsford, B.C. I’ll be selling my Teens Dream Journal DVD as well as some pendants, cards and bookmarks.  I’ll be chatting about art journaling as well!  Come out and see me if you can. There will be lots of booths there as well as some awesome speakers.  I’d love to meet you.

    Hey Violette! How cool that you’ll be demo-ing at Opus! I’m hoping to come and watch!

    In your next youtube video I would like to see you work through the steps of building a journal page like you’ve written about in Journal Bliss. I LOVE that book, and I would really love to see it in action! (I’ve seen the Visual Journalling Setp by Step, but I feel that there is more in the book than what is shown in that video)

    Hi Violette,

    You continue to inspire me to get a move on and do some art!
    I’d like to see you demonstrate face drawing. I want to see you do that so I can follow along whenever I try to draw faces.

    Thanks for a chance to win. It would be great to have the Follow Your Bliss pendant. It would help me to remember I ought to do just that!
    Love, Ethel

    You make so many fun paintings of female characters – how about a video of making a whimsical paper doll? Or a video actually showing you playing with art with the kids? That could be fun! It is hard to think about something you haven’t already done – you’ve done so much! 🙂

    Since it is Spring, and Summer is on the horizon….something outdoorsy? Maybe decor for the yard…or taking indoor furniture and painting/embellishing it outside on a pretty sunny day…crafts that can be done outside… or sharing more creative ways to brighten the outdoor spaces……the sky is the limit!!

    Hi Violette,

    I would love to see you do lettering, both with a pen and a paintbrush. Your work is always so colourful and inspiring, it’s always a joy to see, thank you

    Hi Violette,

    Love your art, bought your book and think you are one of a kind
    I would love to see you working on a bigger painting. Not that i don’t love your journal pages but i am very curious how you would tackle the big canvas.

    From the Netherlands with love

    Hi Violette!

    It was our wedding anniversary yesterday so I wasn’t here to post – but this morning when I saw your post about the May giveaway, of course, I had to chime in! I would love to own your lovely pendant and receive your adorable greeting cards! Merrill & I were dreaming once again about buying our ‘dream house’..and I mentioned to him, it’ll be my dream house when I can use paint in wild abandon like my friend Violette’s home! I can’t wait & we are looking at moving back to WA to do just that! Love your videos, too~!

    Sorry I needed to post what I’d like to see in your next video – I like the idea of watching you create your angels with mixed media – watercolor/ink or something like that – I love your sense of whimsy too.

    I have another idea thanks to your recent post. How about a video giving organizing suggestions on how to clear-up and organize your studio!

    Hi Violette!! The Follow Your Bliss pendant is just gorgeous. In your next youtube video, I’d love some step-by-step instruction on face drawing…and then possibly even step-by-step instruction on how to draw a cute little cartoon girl like your You Can Do It girl!
