New Facebook page – Sharing Botanicals :o)

I have started a new Facebook group page for my classes. ¬†Many of you have asked for a place to share you work and be able to ask questions when you feel stuck between sessions. ¬†So I’m going to try the Facebook forum and see how it goes. ¬†It is for student’s in my classes only….it is a place to share with me and with fellow classmates between classes. ¬†So for those of you who are on Facebook search for the group page “Sharing Botanicals”and join us. ¬†I will visit the site frequently and try to help out with helpful hints and tips. ¬†You can also enjoy each other’s work and questions. ¬†Have fun and be inspired.

I will also be share things I am working on during the summer break and beyond :0)  I will still continue to post all updates on my website as well.

Those of you who are already on Facebook I took the liberty of inviting you into the group….you can delete your invitation if you don’t want to be part of the group…no worries :0)

I hope the rains have finally ended……phew…..what week!

I am working on a giant strawberry inspired by a website I think you will all enjoy!¬†http://workshop.watercolourswithwow.com¬†it is by a talented botanical artists Anna Mason. ¬†She has many wonderful videos on technique…enjoy ūüôā
