April 2018


I just found out about this event. It is my first time attending, I’m not sure if they had one in the past, I couldn’t find a review, but it is free so I thought to give it a try and I signed up. The workshop officially begins April 23rd and runs through May 4th. Each day you’ll get an email with links to the two sessions of the day. You’re free to do as many of the sessions as you’d like, from all to just a couple. They give a list of supplies per class, but you are able to use whatever supplies you have on hand. Please come back I’ll post my sketches late on.  Sketchbook Revival here I come! **All sessions will be available until May 18th so there is plenty of time. I think this means that you can not download the classes.

Either way, I wanted to share with you my take on this in case you are curious or you want to join. I have enjoyed Bloom and Fly a lot, the camaraderie and the intense infusion of inspirational posts that come daily are amazing. Many creative people working constantly, it is equal to a “brain freeze” in an artful manner. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed as it is hard not to spark ideas of your own and have a traffic jam. The range of skills vary and I sometimes feel like a pre-school girl, but I’m happy to know that I can grow and achieve pieces that I feel proud of, even when I’m also capable…
