Printmaking Class Work.

This is just a little something I was playing around with in my Printmaking class. This print was made using my hand carved vinyl plate and water soluble ink. After printing I coloured it in with pencils and markers. This was a practice before printing on good paper with oil based ink.
***Linda (Serendipity), this post is for you =D***

In other news:

You can now find me on Pinterest. And yes it is addictive.

You can still enroll in Life Book, the year long mixed media course that I will be guest teaching in.

Hope you're having a wonderful day.

My Interview & A purchase from Juliette Crane.

The lovely Deborah, from Scat N Style, has featured me and my artwork on her blog. You can read my interview here. Wow! Can you believe it? The universe is so good to me at the moment. I must have done something right, somewhere along the line.
Deborah is a Jazz singer who's blog is dedicated to music and art appreciation. There are many interesting interviews on her blog, so grab a coffee and read through a few on them, maybe even mine.
You can find her on facebook also, where she mentions my interview.

Don't forget it's not too late to enter my Life Book Giveaway, if you haven't already done so. 

I have another secret....................and yes, it is as awesome as the last...........stay tuned for this one.

I hope life is treating you well.

Just thought I'd show you what arrived in my mailbox.
How beautiful is this. I brought this from fellow Life Book teacher, Juliette Crane. She has a beautiful selection of prints and original artworks in her shop. You can view her post on this and two other gorgeous journals here. She didn't have them long, as they sold like hot cakes. I was one of the lucky buyers and LOVE it.

Life Book - I am teaching with Tam. Giveaway coming.

So much for the suspense.  I just can't contain my excitement any longer. Drum roll if you please...............

I am one of the teachers of Life Book. Yep. You heard that correctly. (High fives all around)
Life Book is year long mixed media course, created by the talented and wonderful
Tam "Willowing" Laporte over on her ning site. 

"Life Book, a celebration and honouring of YOU”

I will be joining Tam and at least 14 incredible art teachers, who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU, on this Awesome course. Themed around self-development and healing, you'll be creating a minimum of 2 loose mixed media art journal pages per month (through a minimum of 2 lessons a month) which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)!  
You get a minimum of 26 spectacular mixed media lessons (videos & PDFs) plus loads of extras for less than $100. How cheap is that. And if that hasn't blown your socks off, on signing up you get to choose one of Tam's other online courses, at no extra cost.  
(I should be hearing the words 'WOW!' by now)  
So please click the link below, so Tam knows I sent you.

I will be having a giveaway in the next few days, so keep an eye out for that.
Till then,
Kyles =D
