In my watercolor split group, we've been talking about classes a lot - the crafting community loves to learn.
I have taken a ton of online classes in the last few years. It's amazing how much is out there.
I love Online Card Classes for crafty classes. As a matter of fact, there's a new one coming up - all about shiny things - check it out.
I am taking a watercolor class right now on the Jeanne Oliver site.
And Creative Live has some photography tutorials I want to take - that's something I have wanted to make time for and just haven't done it. I love that they have free classes so you can try before you buy. They even have ones geared towards Instagram panoramas etc. So much to learn, so little time.
One of the things in the watercolor class I'm taking though is experimenting with different kinds of washes to get the effects you want - like clouds, or fields, etc., so I've been playing with washes a LOT.
I thought it would be fun to use mini washes in the hexagons from Honey Bee's Sweet as Honey stamp set as a color wash experiment. I knew I could get a fun, colorful abstract look for those and the jars with some no-line watercolor. I love how bold and warm it all turned out.
I met the owner of Honey Bee at CHA and was so thrilled - she's such a sweet lady and she has GREAT ideas. So creative. I had ordered from them when she first opened, and I remember how sweet and adorable her packaging was. I have a soft spot for all things bee, so I knew they had to be great people. :)
So I'm playing along with a blog hop today with them and the MISTI design team peeps - who you all know and love!
Be sure and leave comments everywhere for your chance to win some Honey Bee and My Sweet Petunia goodies! My Sweet Petunia will be giving away a mini MISTI, and Honey Bee will be giving away a $45 shopping spree.
Here's the list of hoppers - buzz on by! :)
