Getting Ready for Chicago, CREATE 2012

Miniature Watercolor Palettes
Everyone loved the miniature watercolor palettes that I had at the Irvine, Create.  I decided to provide even more of them for my classes that I am teaching at the Chicago CREATE.  This way, if you are new to watercolor painting and want to try it without the big expense of buying all new products, you will be able to borrow one of my very cute mini-travel palettes.  These miniature palettes have a variety of colors and hold an amazing amount of paint.  I used empty 1/2 pans that I buy through Daniel Smith Art Supplies and fill them with my choice of colors.  If you find you love watercolor painting, consider purchasing my Watercolor Traveling Kit also available through Daniel Smith.
Here is what Jeanne emailed me about my new Art Journal On-the-Go, on sale today for only $11.97!!!  "Thanks so  much - you are a wonderful teacher. I really appreciate your quiet manner and practical step by step approach. I have assembled - and actually used! - my teeny travel journal kit. It is SO fun to just pull it out and play. It's truly portable, and the way you explain about yours and how you use it made it easy to tailor one for myself. I have even begun making and binding my own custom made books.  I have used it on the plane, in a restaurant, at the doctor's office in the waiting room and to ease the quiet hours at the hotel when I'm traveling for work."  Thanks Jeanne!
