New Techniques and Free Classes

So its Friday and I was going to do something for Link Love over at Daisy Yellow 's blog but realized that was set up for blogs and not videos.  I found some great videos when I was ill that I wanted to share with all of you.

In this video the people at GelliArts show using gel medium as a resist. Just one more way to use a gelliplate. They also use distress stain instead of paint which I liked because I have some of the stains but don't use them that often.  I love finding new ways to use old supplies.

In this video I.K. Tolbert show how to make prints with some glue and cardboard. It looks like a fun technique.

This is a step by step journey through creating a portrait in charcoal.

My friend Kelley made this video showing how to make paper fortune cookies.  They are so cute, I know I will make some soon.

In this video you will learn how to make a strip of tickets without using a die and its so easy.  I wish I had seen this last month.  There was a ticket swap in a group I belong to and I really didn't want to buy a die to participate. Now I know I didn't have to.

Free Classes 
I know that you all like a bargain so here is one for you.  A coupole years ago I offered 2 online classes. They were called Mixed Media 101 and Bodacious Backgrounds.  The first covers the basics of mixed media and gets you started on your own art journal and the second is all on backgrounds.  I am making them available free to anyone.  Here is the link to both sets of classes.  Pass on the information to anyone you think might be interested.  Have a great weekend!


  1. Great video sharing. I am half way through trying glue and cardboard prints, this reminds me I need to finish!

    I have shared video over at Daisy Yellow's link love, I don't think she is strict about it, more about the sharing and connecting. :)

    Very generous to offer free classes as well!

  2. {Jumping up and down} Thank you, thank you, thank you Kate for the online classes and videos. I can hardly wait to start the Mixed Media 101 and the Bodacious Backgrounds is just the icing on the top!! Thank you for sharing the incredible videos on the GelliArts and techniques. Have a great weekend!!

  3. Kate, you're amazing! Thanks for all the videos and a huge thank you for the FREE classes. You're always so generous with your art and your techniques.

    PS - I hope you're feeling better.
