First Video Demo!

Hey everybody! Over the weekend I worked on my first video tutorial and posted it on my facebook page on how I paint with water color pencils. I painted one of my Stampavie Winter Collection stamps and made an ornament out of it. It was sooo much fun! It's not perfect- out of focus and very looong. But hope you'll check it out anyway. You may have to squint your eyes some and fast forward a little, LOL. It's not about having it all right the first time, it's a journey and learning as I go.

Not sure if any of you know this, but I work alongside my husband Mike. He's a graphic designer and he's the one who takes my artwork and turns it into something that someone can actually use. Also, he is a very talented artist himself. He sits silently in the wings allowing me to get all the credit. Mike inspired the filming and edited the video for me. An amazing jack' of all trades, Mike is not afraid to try something new.
I love video how-to's because "we" creative people are visual learners- we learn with our eyes and our fingers. My very best teachers were the ones who actually sat down and took the time to demonstrate.

Can't wait to work on some other projects and to share more of the fun things I have learned with you:)


  1. Stunning creation love the tip on working light to dark this is where i have been going wrong and ended up in the bin each time, with markers i go dark to light, awesome tutorial huggles Pops x x x

  2. You make it look so easy. Anything that I ever tried to do looked like a Rorschach test when I was done. Even my Mom didn't keep my artwork when I was young.
