Painting Large and an Art Journaling Spread...

Happy Monday!

I have been working a bit more on my large painting. Here is the progression as of late:



I'm at the point with it now where I need to decide if I want to stay with bright and bold, or tone everything down... I must ponder...


I also had the chance to record an art journaling spread this week! I was in the mood to work a bit more simply with just some colored pencils and such. 

Enjoy!







Thanks for stopping by! And, stay tuned as I have an extra post going up this week of something really fun...

Art Museums, Documented Life, and Oversized Painting...

Hello there!

We have been enjoying a membership to our local art museum and I was even able to scrap about it this week!





This layout includes the lovely goodies from both 28 Lilac Lane and A Flair For Buttons. As always, you can find links of my FAQ page.

I also got started with August in my Documented Life Project...

And finally, I have enjoyed painting LARGE! Here is a progression thus far...
Please note, I left much of the background in the photos so you can get a sense of scale...






That's all for now! But, lots of fun things are in the works... stay tuned!

July Pages, Documented Life, and More Bible Journaling...

Hello, hello!

It's been a fun and crafty week around here! I completed my July pocket pages...





And, I may have gone a little button crazy on some of this. But, how can I resist those gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane goodies! (Disclosure, I am fortunate enough to work with them and you can find links to buy the gorgeousness on my FAQ page.)

I also added some fun FLAIR! (Also on my FAQ page)

Earlier last week, I had the pleasure of attending another bible journaling class. This time, I made a fun tag, inspired by the lovely crown stamp set of the month. I ended up incorporating it into my Documented Life Project too!
And this cutie little birdie from Buttons Galore and More...(find that link over on the FAQ page as well)

 
Also, I am just starting to do some oversized painting and will share some glimpses of that soon!
Have a great week!

Want a few more details?
Here you go...

With this course, you will receive instant access to the following:
  • One intro video discussing my favorite art journaling supplies.
  • FIVE video segments that add up to one completed art journaling spread, start to finish, voiced in real-time.
  • That comes to a total of 6 videos, with just over 2 hours of video content.

  • Ability to download videos to your own personal computer or compatible device for permanent archiving and viewing.
  • One exclusive art journal spread that is only available to students in this class and is guaranteed not to be shared elsewhere.

  • And, what I hope, is an abundant amount of inspiration!
Questions and Answers:


How are these videos different from what you already post for free on YouTube?
  • My YouTube art journaling videos are typically presented in high speed, with no voice over. The videos presented in this course are shown in real time, with narration, including in-depth explanations of my process and artistic choices.
What supplies do I need?
  • I encourage you to take this course regardless of the supplies you currently have! The tips and ideas should provide you with plenty of inspiration to get you started, even if your supplies are limited. That being said, I do realize it is helpful to know more than that. So, the supplies that I use in the course are:  white acrylic paint, white gesso, prisma color pencils, gelatos, crayola portfolio oil pastels, graphite pencil, fude ball pen, white signo pen, krylon clear spray, dyslusions art journal, various brushes, and a craft store watercolor palette. 
  • The classroom page will contain a detailed supply link list
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
  • While I feel this class is an extremely good value for the price, I would not want anyone to be unhappy with their purchase. If that is indeed the case, please contact me directly and we can work together to resolve any issue you may be having.
Speaking of price, how much is the course?
  • Only $7! 
How do I buy this course and access my materials?
  • You may purchase this course in my ETSY SHOP HERE. Upon purchase, you will be sent an email with the PDF download. This PDF also includes the private classroom page link as well as the video passcode. If you have any difficulties with the email, the links, or the PDF... simply email me (soaphouse@gmail.com) and we will resolve any and all issues asap!
What if I have a question that wasn't answered here?

Thanks so much for your loyal support and I look forward to seeing you in class!
