{ Inspire Lovely }

Inspire Lovely class

Hi love :)

Thank you for your patience with me and this pretty class I've been talking so much about. I am beyond excited to finally share with you the details of my first on-line art class, {Inspire Lovely}. This is a free style course that I've designed with you in mind. If you've wanted to add some grunge to your style this is the time to learn :) I can only promise that: you will have fun painting, splattering, and layering your heart out. I've designed the class in a way that allows you to better understand where I draw inspiration from and how I use my everyday to inspire lovely art on paper.

{Inspire Lovely} is a week of love & whimsy all in an on-line art class starting August 1-7.

Class includes the following:
* 7 days of rockin' "art school" style classes (I loved art school, i know you'll love it too!)
* 7 Inspiration Board photos to inspire your creativity
* 7 Art sketches with detailed instructions + photos
* 7 photography prompts
* 7 journaling prompts
* Printable PDF embellishments designed exclusively for "Inspire Lovely"
* Video techniques (including spray paint, layering with style, using "white space", splatter and watercolour effects)
* Access to private art class blog (will be up for 2 weeks after the class ends so you can work at your own pace)
* Access to one-on-one access to instructor via private e-mail.
* Sharing techniques and my personal inspiration lists and places.
* A PDF of the class will be sent out once the class ends. Will include photos and detailed instructions you can reference at your leisure.
* A sweet giveaway! I love giving things away :) One Belladrummer etsy shop certificate worth $15. xoxo

The class is SOLD OUT :) Thank you!

Kits come with printed embellishments designed exclusively for {Inspire Lovely}. Each kit includes lovely papers, handmade embellishments and thrifted fabric swatches.

EDITED: All kits are now SOLD OUT! Thank you :)


Disclaimer::::::::::::
Notice that I wrote "art class"? :) Don't fear! This has to do with my silly pet peeve #239: The term "Scrapbooking". I didn't want to use the term because I really don't like it. I don't consider myself a scrapbooker because I like expressing myself as an artist. It's much more open and creative I think :) Less manufacturer or product driven. Which when I'm creating something I never worry about what brand I'm using etc. I don't think you need a special name brand or product to be inspired and creative. :)

Mr. Handsome had this to add to my class description: "This ain't yo grandma's scrapbooking class." He's funny AND cute. hahaa. ( no offense to super cool grandma's who scrapbook ). I love grandmas. xoxo.

And just for fun, I'm giving one lucky person a free ticket for {Inspire Lovely}!
Just let me know what your favorite color is at the moment.
Mine changes a lot but I've always loved black :P I know... but hey it's a pretty rad color.

I will pick a winner this friday!

xoxo
