Summer Fun and Adventure



This is a first for me to run a sale on my Etsy products. I love to create art, eBooks, textures, etc., but like most creatives it stops there. Then I was reminded that my friends and customers deserve a thank you for their support and the best way to do it is to offer a nice discount. So from today until May 31, 2017, I am giving you a coupon for 20% off of everything in my Etsy shop. Just apply this code at check out.   ZC4EMS1

There are eBooks with instructions for creating textures with CitraSolv and using them for unique art and mixed media art, art journal and collages.  If you live in an area where you cannot purchase CitraSolv then I offer digital textures that I created with this process, You can print them out and use them for collage, or backgrounds for your creation. They are also great for digital art like the piece I created above on my iPad. As an added bonus I'll send you the texture I used for the digital art for free with any purchase during this sale. Remember the sale ends May 31st! To learn more about these eBooks go to          http://artistebooks.blogspot.com

Have fun this summer and create something with CitraSolv®.

Flowers in Bloom



Atlanta is at its loveliest this time of year. Flowers are in bloom everywhere. They inspired me to paint this flower bouquet on my iPad using the Procreate app. Since so many people have asked me how I do it I am thinking about creating a short video class about it. What do you think?

Making Slideshow Videos




video

As I get older everything takes a little longer and more effort to do. As many of you probably know I have written another eBook using CitraSolv®. I am totally fascinated with the textures and other things I can do with CitraSolv® and I love sharing my techniques in the form of eBooks. It’s my art instructor mentality. I made promotion videos for my other two eBooks, but I really dragged my heels on this one. It turned out to be a lot shorter, but some say it’s a good one. What do you think?

You can learn more about this new eBook at www.artistebooks.blogspot.com , or to purchase go directly to my Etsy shop

BTW you don't have to have CitraSolv® to benefit from the information in this eBook!

New eBook: How I Create CitraSolv Contemporary Collages





My new eBook, ' How I Create CitraSolv Contemporary Collages" is finally finished and is for sale in my Etsy store. I am adding a limited time free bonus of 6 digital CitraSolved pages worth $4.25 that you can print and use with most of the techniques in the eBook. This is great for those of you unable to obtain CitraSolv. The fee bonus offer ends January 31, 2017 so I hope you take advantage of it.

Learn my techniques for creating contemporary collages using CitraSolved papers and other materials.

This eBook will show you how I create these collages and I will share links to other artist’s videos that have inspired me and the techniques that I have adapted in my own collages. 

There are 26 diagrammed collages showing the techniques I used.

In this eBook there is a chapter about composition and my thoughts on the subject which I call ‘Intuitive Composition’.

I share some transfer techniques that I have not used in my other eBooks!

I will show you how to finish your collage including using Cold Wax. You will also learn how to mount your collage on canvas or frame it.

The collage techniques I will be showing you could also be done with other papers that are not altered with CitraSolv®. If you can’t buy CitraSolv you can buy digital CitraSolv® textures at my Etsy store and can print them and use paint instead of CitraSolv® in the ways I use CitraSolv® to remove the inks on the actual textured papers. 

There are assets of templates and copyright free images that you can use as well! 

You can see the table of contents at my Etsy store

If you love collage then you will enjoy this eBook!
