Welcome to the whimsical girl classroom!

In this self paced class you will learn to create step-by-step this adorable whimsical girl.  We will cover backgrounds, choosing papers and colours, drawing painting and detailing our girl!

This lesson was featured in Kara Bullock’s Let’s Face It workshop in 2016.

If you have not already you are welcome to join the private facebook group “a journey for the soul” where you can share your artwork with others taking my classes, and gain feedback and ask questions.

resources – vintage imagery

You can obtain vintage imagery from a lot of great sites on the web, these are two links for
websites I use a lot and find they are an excellent resource.
Their images are royalty free public domain images.  Just type in the search field what you
are looking for (eg. “sheet music” “script” “handwritten letters” “roses” “butterflies”).

I use an inexpensive colour laser printer to print out all of my papers on regular copy paper.
Alternatively you can have them printed at your local copy store.
