NOW CLOSED!!!!!!!!!! Ever After 2018 - Blog Hop & Give Away!


Hello lovely people!

I have some wonderful, exciting news! I am going to be teaching
on Ever After this year! I am super excited to be back on the Ever After team for the third time, I love the vibe this class has, it is always so much fun!!!!!!!!
And even MORE exciting news is that I can give away 1 space on this magical new collaborative
art course! Keep reading if you want to find out more about Ever After  and if you want to find out how you can win a spot! :)

First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven't heard about it yet!
“Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by
Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 14 popular mixed media art teachers who
will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND they will also divulge all
their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own
unique voice as an artist! :) Yay!

You can find out all the details (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE 
My chosen fairy tale is 'The Jungle Book'. My lesson will be inspired by this
fairy tale, I have some fabulous ideas cooking! I've not fully developed my class idea yet, but I'm
excited to be sharing all my wild and whimsical ideas and techniques with you, much like you can see in these paintings below:


Registration opens on May 15th 2018 and the class begins on July 1st 2018.
So if you want to start your summer drawing and painting fairy-tales, exploring your own personal
story and style and hang out with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, be sure to
join once registration opens! :) Keep this page bookmarked so that you can sign up the moment it goes on sale! :)


Now then, onto the give-away and blog hop! :)

  18. Congratulations on being part of Ever After 2018. You must be so thrilled. Your works is soooooo inspiring. I would be so grateful to win a space on Ever After. I live in a world that is anything but a fairy tale at the moment so being part of Ever After will mean that I can escape to a magical world… Even if it is only for a short amount of time. It would also help develop my own style so I may break free from the prison I am currently caught in. I will send out heaps of positivity and love so that it may bring me the opportunity to join you. May you have a blessed day. Lots of love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx

  32. I used to love fairy tales. But last September my daughter passed away suddenly. Right now the world is just painted black. I saw your auction and all your pieces reminded me of her, of how much she would love to have one, at her room, along with Tam’s. So I could not bid as she is not in this world anymore. Love your work, though. I made the “queen of cosmos class” for her.
