Creative JumpStart - My Interview with Nathalie

Hi everyone, just popping in to post the video of a fun little Skype interview that I did a week or so ago with Nathalie Kalbach. We talked about my project for Creative JumpStart, how my travels inspire my work, finding time to be creative with a full-time job, and lots more! I hope you enjoy it :)

 

You can learn more or sign up for Creative JumpStart - we've already started, but videos can be viewed and downloaded through December, so it's not too late to join in!

 


Creative JumpStart 2017 Sneak Peek 1

Have you signed up for Creative JumpStart 2017? Last year was my first year, and I was so impressed with the variety of projects and how inspired I was to create and try new things as I watched the videos! 

If you've been thinking about it, I thought I'd post a little teaser that may (or may not!) push you over the edge ;)

The theme this year is Mix, Match, and Master, and we're mixing styles and supplies in our projects! I'll give you a little hint... mine is mixed media assemblage, and I even added 10+ minutes of bonus video demonstrating how I made the focal point of this piece (you should also be able to download the bonus video.)

Here are some fun facts and figures about what you get with Creative JumpStart:

Hope to see you there!
