one step closer.....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKTxy9HaPQQ


    I have cut my hours at work so that I have Friday's off. My goal with that is to teach myself how to make videos and start teaching on-line classes ( can you say... it's about time? ) ..... so sign up ABOVE where it says online classes  - don't forget to leave me an email address. Because my goal is January to start a lettering class to end all lettering classes. But for now... i'm gonna keep practicing on you all with these freebie ones. So let me know what I can improve on or what you like...

    So today was my first attempt. My video is now up on my You Tube channel - HERE! Yes, it's true... i have a you tube channel. You should subscribe. It's LINDSAY OSTROM.... not the Lindsay Ostrom that is the food blogger called "A pinch of yum" - although she is younger and cuter than me. Just type in LINDSAY OSTROM in the search box, or click HERE!  This sweet little pumpkin is the project that I taught..... Pretty Little Doodled Pumpkins. I showed how to draw this little pumpkin from start to finish.... however it was too wet to do the colored pencil detail so, in the video... I said I would post it here.

    So, how i finished this piece was by adding the scribbled detail in colored pencil and then put the piece together. I sewed the water color pumpkin card onto some black and white polka dot fabric and then sewed that piece onto a deckled edge piece of grey handmade paper. I added in some fluffy bits and pieces of lace, burlap, tulle and some fabric strips. Last was the hanger. I love to buy those fun wire hangers at the craft store. I keep all sizes in my craft room so that I can easliy add an art piece to them. I punched holes in the handmade paper and tied the piece to the hanger with torn strips of fabric. I hope you guys try this on your own. Please email me a pic if you do and you love it! I would love to see what you do....

    Stay tuned for my next video. Not sure what I will do yet.... but it will be simple and sweet and in touch with the season. Happy Fall!!!

Final product is beautiful. You can always use a heat gun on your videos if you need to speed up the drying time, I love how you took time to make the step outs to show how to draw the pumpkin and leaves. Very detailed and very good.

I missed you last Friday when I had shopping to do at Benny's...however Congratulations on being "One Step Closer". Love your videos of the pumpkin and sunflower. It has given me a lot more confidence to scribble and not be so precise and exacting all the time. You are the Best Miss Creator of Cuteness!!!
