MPS FREEBIE, 50% OFF SALE AND NEW RELEASES



Hi friends,

I hope that you are all having a wonderful summer, that you had alot of fun road trips and vacations and some good old fashioned BBQ's or maybe just some well deserved relaxation time. In between my dogwalks I have been doing alot of drawing and also some digital coloring again and I've been having a blast with coloring some of my new and old images.

Its been SO HOT here in Southern California, especially last week, since our summer usually heats up in August and September the most. I've been dogwalking by the beach alot this month  and have been inspired by all the kids running up and down the sand, so cute! They helped inspire my new digital stamp set called, "A BEACH DAY" now available at my Etsy shop here it is:


A BEACH DAY

Happy Summer! I hope you are all enjoying your "Christmas in July" creating and are keeping cool. A few weeks ago I stumbled onto a website called Creative Live, if you havent been there I highly recommend it, I am so hooked. 

Its full of art classes of all different types for all different levels and also have lots of professional classes for artists who want to sell and market their art. Some are also free at different times and they always have classes on sale as well. 

I took a class called, "Become A Working Artist" with Lisa Congdon who does a number of things as an artist; licensing, canvas painting, writing and teaching to name just a few. What an inspiration, I highly recommend her class!

I have a few things to share with you, first I have a new rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called, "3 WISE MEN" available now!

I have also been working on some sketches and some digital color work. I am trying to update my portfolio with some childrens book illustrations and have been playing around with illustrating, "Cinderella" below are a sketch and colored sketches.

I also am posting a little, soon to be a stamp set, sketch  called, "A BEACH DAY" that has been really fun to work on. I will chat with you soon, I hope you enjoy your weekend:)

Hugs,

Michelle

MPS NEW "COFFEE FRIENDS" DIGITAL STAMP SET




Dear Friends,

I hope your new year is going well so far. I've been trying to get creatively cranked up again after Christmas and being sick thru most of December with a bad cold but feel great now and ready to start off 2015 with some new work to share with you guys.

I just listed a brand new digital stamp set at my Etsy shop, its called, "COFFEE FRIENDS" and was inspired by my coffee friends that I meet with at Starbucks and of course my great love of coffee, which is actually more of an obsession sometimes since I cant seem to live without it most days:)

Also, this set will be available in rubber soon!

Any how I hope you like it!

Hugs,

Michelle
