A little update on the online class.

Based on a couple of emails I got I just wanted to add this....please feel free to ask any questions and I will be happy to share.  The best place for the questions would be on the Tutorial Page that way everyone can see the q and a.  Also please do not feel silly about making a small donation.  I would love to have the time to do more.  I really enjoyed doing these but as you can see I have nothing up on ebay now and really need to get back to painting.  Blessings.

Online Class ...How to work with Crackle Paste and Transferred Images.

I just uploaded an online video tutorial of how I work with Crackle Paste and Transferred Images. I broke it up into 10 short segments to make the videos digestible. I am providing these free of charge as I am so grateful for all the free info that is on the web these days. However, I have posted donation buttons all over the place :). If you want to encourage me to do more tutorials please donate as they take more time than you can imagine to edit and upload. If you already do videos like this then I am sure you already know and I am preaching to the choir!
