In the CLASSroom – Guest Post (& GIVEAWAY!)

Hi crafty peeps! I am BEYOND excited today as I have something thrilling to share. I am guest posting on Ellen Hutson in the CLASSroom today!! If you don’t know who Ellen Hutson is, she is the owner of one of the premiere online stores for paper-crafting, mixed media, art supplies…and more!

I am sharing a mixed media piece AND a step-by step tutorial over on the CLASSroom today. This piece is filled with so much prettiness. A Bloom Girl, two colors of Texture Paste, beautiful Basic Greys papers, flowers, Gelatos®, and a super lovely quote to inspire you.

Here’s a peek!

LisaAdametz-ColorfulSoul-BlogPeekIsn’t even the sneak peek dreamy? I am so completely in love with using Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils with Jamie’s Bloom Girl stamps. They are a match made in heaven.

But wait! There’s MORE!! Ellen is sooo generous! To celebrate my inaugural guest post on the CLASSroom she has generously offered up a GIVEAWAY for all of my readers!! Isn’t that fabulous?

  3. Bernadette says:

    Gorgeous work of art, Lisa! The instructions are great! I admit, though, This is an art form I am a bit timid to try at this moment. However, the more I read up on this technique, the better it will become familiar to me! The only item I have in my possession from this generous giveaway is the gel medium. It would be fabulous to win the rest! Congratulations on your “first” appearance in the CLASSroom! You’ve done a great job!

  43. Marilyn Peter says:

    THANK YOU so much for this wonderful tutorial!!! I have only just purchased some Mixed media products and one of the Bloom Girl stamps yesterday for my Grand-daughter who has never done any sort of this art before (neither have I, we are going to learn together), she has a few problems at home and she spends a lot of time with me. She is interested in art and drawing and I thought this sort of funky (her expression) art would suit her! I have a lot of scrapbooking products (but none of the products you have used), we are going to dive into the world of Mixed media together head first!! Your tutorial is just what we needed! Gorgeous work!

  44. Carol Held says:

    This is amazingly beautiful! Your generousity, plays right into your quote! Thanks to both you, and EllenI learned so much by viewing this canvas process!

  45. Donna says:

  48. Karen Andrews says:

    Lisa…thank you so much for sharing your talent. I am interested in doing some mixed media artwork and these stamps and Gelatos look amazing.

  49. Cynthia Scott Moore says:

    It was my new years resolution to begin my art journal. Your mixed media project is such an inspiration! Love your work.

  50. Christy Q says:

    Such a fabulous tutorial, Lisa! I so appreciate it whenever anyone takes the time to break down something step by step – especially when it is something that is completely new and “artsy” to me. Your project is amazing and I love how you layered different media together to create something that looks so seamless!

  51. Eileen M says:

    Wow, that is a gorgeous piece of art! I hope some day to try mixed media, but that’s a few years off, due to over commitment in many areas of life. Thanks for sharing!

  52. Lisa, thank you for the step by step tutorial on the CLASSroom blog post. I am so new and wanna try mixed media :) Your post is very helpful! Crossing my fingers and would love to win this pack :D THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  53. terriavidreader says:

    You are such a talent, but I’m not sure this is for me. I’m stuck in a rut probably, but my thing is just cards, and very simple ones usually.
    Never hurts to stop by and see something totally different!

  54. Pat says:

    Thank you for sharing your lovely piece of art

    Thanks so much for sharing all the great technique tips!!

  56. vicdd says:

    thanks for sharing
    and thank for the chance to win

  57. grandmabelle07 says:

    I enjoyed your artwork with the Bloom girl but more important is the advice that you offered. Basically, to stop “sweating” our art. I get so wrapped up on how it looks and have to be reminded it only has to be liked by me. I am not doing the art for approval but for my own personal enjoyment. I have the bloom girl stamp and do want to try your techniques. Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies!

  58. Josie Lombardi says:

    What a truly wonderful piece. I truly enjoyed learning the techniques and also the chance to win. Thanks for your generousity.

  59. Renee V. says:

    Beautiful piece!! Is the giveaway still open? Thought it was through midnight tonight
