It's a blog party

As I have mentioned before, I took Lilla Roger's Making Art that Sells course in the month of October. One of the great benefits of the course, was the Facebook group where all my fellow classmates could come together.

Now that the course is over, we decided to do a blog tour. So today, I have a few extra special guests stopping by! Give a big welcome to the Mats 2A participants.

Before the course, I did a lot of urban sketching which is a great way to get sketching and practice different techniques. But having done that for over a year straight, a few things became certain – sketching in the winter in Canada is COLD! At minus 20°C, there are not too many pens that will agree to work and good indoor spots are limited. They are looking to hibernate for a few months!

This is where Lilla Roger's course came in. Looking at markets such as bolt fabric, home decor, gift, etc., has given me some new directions. I've realized, it's nice to have a project to work on.

So what have I been up to the last 4 weeks since the class ended?? I have dusted off my portfolio, including a new monthly newsletter signup. I have uploaded my coffee design (wk5) to Society6 as well as my wall art (wk4) design. And now I am starting in on some new designs which hopefully I'll be able to share in the new year. It's going to look a bit like Santa's workshop in the new few weeks around my place as I get everything together!

Danielle McDonald, who I am co-hosting the blog party with today, made this wonderful video about her experience doing the course.
