Jump into Summer! Creative JumpStart 2017 Sale

Summer begins next week and maybe you are looking for some inspiration this season? If you missed Creative JumpStart 2017 this January, it’s not too late to take advantage of the online workshop. For the next week (June 16-23, 2017), I am running a 20% off sale on CJS17 for those of you who might need a little JumpStart to your mixed media projects :)

Creative JumpStart 2017 features 27 downloadable videos by leading mixed media artists. The videos are downloadable until November 2017 and once downloaded, are an invaluable resource when you need some new ideas.  Although you may have missed the fun and excitement of playing along in real-time with the CJS community, you will still have access to the CJS17 Classroom where you will find material lists, artist bios, and galleries of project images that Jumpers uploaded during January.

Enjoy the sale and I hope to see you in January 2018 for the next Creative JumpStart!

Jumping with Joe – A Video Conversation

I had the pleasure to video chat with Joe Rotella  and we talked about his creative process, how he envisions a story for each of his pieces and how he looks at different material to create certain parts of the story.

By the way ….sometimes it takes several takes to just do the intro for a video- check out how Joe and I giggle silly about me not being able to pronounce anything right
