Wow! That is all I can say after the second day of Creating a BJD doll with Apryl Jensen. She shows such a simple way for creating such amazing dolls. I can’t wait to get mine done.

Today we covered the torso, hands and feet. Tomorrow we will put the doll together, get some paint done.

How to Make Ball Jointed Dolls with Apryl Jehnsen. Today was our first day of this course. People loved Apryl’s style. She created a pixie face.

Not without some issues. We had some streaming problems out of our control. But tomorrow she will recap and move to the next phase.

By the end of the How to Make Ball Jointed Dolls course, people will have learned how to build a full doll.

Day 1 was fantastic and people learned a lot. Today she will add the landscapes to the animals.

if you missed this one it is a good thing you can still get the mixed media watercolor animals on demand and have lifetime access.

Just saying.

We started today the Mixed Media Watercolor Course with Kenzie Galbraith. She makes gorgeous animals that look amazing on a wall and even on a tattoo.

Plus she uses all kinds of cool pencils, gouache and watercolor.

This first day she is teaching people how to draw the animals. She started with the grid system and some other two options of drawing the animals in an easy way

Talk about a huge success! Deanna Baugh rocked the house. Thousands of people from all around the World came to see  Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom live online course.

No questions were left unanswered and she showed how to weave a beautiful scarf on the rigid heddle loom.

She showed a nice selection of options to weave on the rigid heddle loom. She loves to make dish towels and a lot of our audience does too. That never crossed my mind.

Jodi McRaney-Rusho is on the third day of her course Fusing glass for the Holidays. So many ideas, so much covered.

She started with Halloween today and a Fused Glass Skeleton that glows in the dark. Then a fused glass skull that is really cool. Incredible that you can make these things with fused glass.
