Happy Friday my creative friends!

After all of that worrying about technology the 21 Secrets LIVE spreecast went off without a hitch!  I was worried that i would have too much time on the 1 1/2 hour spreecast and not enough art work to share……as it turned out I had to quickly glue down some of the elements at the end of the show as we were swiftly running out of time!

This is what i came up with – Random art journal piece!  I ended up adding the words and shading later on as there wasn’t enough time to get to the details.

I wanted to show how you you could add dimension to characters by using pencil crayons.

I don’t know about you but i have difficulty talking and drawing at the same time so i had to have some rough sketches done up ahead of time to ink in while Connie was interviewing me.

A workshop and help for Aspiring Authors!

Connie is a brilliant teacher and facilitator – i just wanted to give you the heads up about her newest class – Painting the Feminine

Marney Makridakis has done it again – she’s partnered with Marc Allen to help aspiring authors – Do you have a book inside you? Check out this free video about writing a book proposal, by two creative publishing leaders – take a look here! Just to let you know that i am affiliate of Marney’s programs so will receive a fee if you decide to buy this program. I only recommend programs that I believe in.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

21 Secrets LIVE spreecast today!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is the 21 Secrets LIVE spreecast and I’m the guest artist for this week.  Hooray!spreecast

One of my challenges is technology. The thing is everything is changing so quickly in the world that it’s hard to keep up.  I think it’s easier for young people to keep up but it certainly is not impossible for more mature people – *ahem to get the hang of things.

So here i am in the above photo this morning with a goofy pair of headsets on trying to get the sound and lighting down right before the show this afternoon.  You see the window lets too much light in so I had to  put up a sarong on the window – too much light means washed out face.  I have a fear of messing up so hope all goes well.  I had Mr. G help me last night with the headset and he was having difficulty connecting the speakers and getting the sound right.  He was pretty frustrated which made me worried since he’s a techie guy Smile

I think we got it right………..so fingers crossed! 

I’m assembling all of my supplies and books so they can be accessed easily during the spreecast – I’m upstairs and my supplies are downstairs so it’s a bit of a schlepp if i forget something.

Because I have difficulty talking and drawing I’ll be sketching out some ideas so i can ink them in on camera.

There is so much stuff, ideas and life stories that i want to share – I’m sure I won’t get to all of them! 

I thought I would share my story here to demonstrate that it’s good to “feel the fear and do it anyway” in life.  You stay stuck if you let things like technology or not knowing how to do something prevent you from accessing your dreams!

See you later alligator!

21 Secrets LIVE!

 

Hello Creatives!

I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful celebration – an art journaling adventure. There are so many things to be grateful for and the amazing connection with other creatives made possible by the wonders of the internet is one of them!  Yay!

21secrets_LIVE

21 SECRETS is turning five years old this 2014 and we are throwing a special workshop to celebrate our ka-tooties off!

Come join a group of past 21 SECRETS teachers in 21 SECRETS LIVE!–you don’t have to find a hotel, break the bank on airfare, or even get out of  your pajamas! 

Starting January 15 your host Connie Hozvicka of Dirty Footprints Studio and a past 21 SECRETS teacher will meet every Wednesday at 6pm EST for a LIVE! video broadcast where you can art journal along with us in real time, ask us questions through a chat format, laugh your hiney off, sip margaritas, and feel like we’re right there with you in your studio LIVE!

Can’t make the LIVE! broadcasts? No problemo! Each 21 SECRETS LIVE! broadcast is recorded and available for all members to keep and return to again and again!

But the party doesn’t just stop there–we’ll keep the loving going in a private Facebook group and Flickr gallery too–so you can share your work, give and receive feedback, and be a part of a heart-centered supportive community of Artists!

HOW IT WORKS

  • Each workshop is geared towards getting us art journaling LIVE! together as a community–please do not fret over what supplies you need–bring what you got and what you can afford!
  • Each broadcast will last 90 minutes where the teacher will art journal LIVE! from their studio sharing what they are doing, answering questions, and chatting along with Connie and YOU!
  • As a live participant you can use the chat box located on the Spreecast platform to dialogue with us and the 21 SECRETS LIVE! community.
  • There will also be an optional private Facebook group  and Flickr gallery where you are welcome to keep the conversation going once the broadcast is over and post your art work.
  • Within 48 hours after the broadcast you will receive a downloadable PDF to keep that will list notes from the broadcast, information about the honored teacher, and a permanent link to the broadcast that you can refer to again and again.
