Chantal Salmon - So beautiful! Thank you Andrea!26. August 2015 – 21:36

Kirst - Hi Andrea,
Someone advised me to look at your workshops and this was the first video I watched from you. I really enjoyed it, it inspired me. You have such a quiet voice, I like that as well. Thanks for this video, and I consider buying your online course Furry Friends now (but first I have to check my savings 😉 )27. August 2015 – 12:30

Evelyn Akel - I just fell in love with your art journal page ! Your work is so beautiful ! And I love cats! My next art journal page will be a cat, and your video was such an inspiration !31. August 2015 – 13:42

Art-Fun at the Beach

There’s nothing better than spending some time away from your everyday-life – even if it’s only 2 or 3 days – spending time outside, seeing different things, doing different things – if’s just so refreshing and inspiring. We just spend 3 Days at the baltic ocean – our favourite place to go for a short-trip […]

Cheryl Billmyer - I love all of them!19. July 2015 – 17:25

Melinda Tate McCall - Love the outlined one? Makes it pop more!19. July 2015 – 20:31

Ruth Guthrie - Yay! I love this. I’m on a beach kick lately and have been sketching lots of fish. Can’t wait to try this.19. July 2015 – 21:53

Elaine Bossingham Edwards - This is so pretty! I love the blue on the shell. It really makes the piece! Thank you for sharing the video. You spoil us with free stuff :) Catch you on Periscope!19. July 2015 – 22:35

Gwen Casteel - Love them both…20. July 2015 – 00:21

Angela - I loved it!!! thanks for sharing the process!!20. July 2015 – 01:02

Rosalind Whitesides - I think I like the outlined version best. It seems more vivid and jumps from the page! The one with the title is nice if you were using it to announce a class or something like that. But just as a piece by itself, I like it without the words. Thanks for the great tutorial!20. July 2015 – 01:19

Merri Nielsen - Hi Andrea!

Thank you for another wonderful tutorial! It’s beautiful! You are so talented!

Of course all the versions are awesome but my favorite is when you outline in pen and add the cross-hatching. Just stunning! I also really like the lettering.

Thank you again!!

Merri20. July 2015 – 01:20

Carrie Peel - I prefer the outlined version, though all are gorgeous! I’ve always outlined everything- it just makes the colors brighter and more vivid, in my opinion. An art teacher once told me not to use black, that it wasn’t “natural” looking, but I guess I just don’t care if it looks natural- I like a whimsical look better anyway!20. July 2015 – 14:17

Cathy Gomes - Definitely the cross hatch version! Thank you for sharing your work. I love it!20. July 2015 – 16:17

Claudene Moore - The watercolor is beautiful!…but your whimsical style is amazing! It’s fun and has more depth. I’m already a very happy student of yours, and I absolutely love your creativity and style. Thank you for sharing this…it’s so inspiring!21. July 2015 – 17:27

Amanda Schofield - Hi Andrea, thank you for the video, it was amazing! I love the outlined version the best, it is so rich23. July 2015 – 08:00

Judy Corona - This is beautiful. I was hoping you got my email. Could you let me know? Thanks!24. July 2015 – 20:49

Nancy Dale - Everything you create is so amazing. Thank you for sharing your art with us! I hope your 2015 is going really well, in all possible ways.26. July 2015 – 12:41

Chantal Scheffel - I love them all, but with the outlining it speaks the most to me!!3. August 2015 – 10:01

Cristỉña Gàbriella - Yay! That’s exactly what I wanna paint in watercolors! Just because it’s summer, baby! Thanks for posting this lovely page, Andrea! <35. August 2015 – 16:07

Kat Rogers - I love how individual your style is, with the little scribbles in ink over the more traditional watercolor. It’s a really great technique for doing quicker sketches, I’ve found (lol, I lack the patience to ever be a real watercolorist, but a quick wash and ink over it works well, even with a less skilled artist than Andrea….)20. August 2015 – 05:03

Gisele Cabral - What i love about summer is sitting outside and sketching, or reading a book. The peace all around me, and the magic of nature, that comes back after a long cold winter.

Leslie Foley - I love summertime because I always travel to Mexico City and spend 4 to 5 weeks with my parents where all the food and cleaning is taking care, I just relax and eat great food , visit family, visit museums ( they have more than 350 different museums to choose from) and I like to take art classes over there, one time I actually took a class on the Academia de San Carlos the same place where Friday Kahlo used to teach. I also love to go to plays and movies over there. Mexico City never slept and it is just a never ending of fun. thanks so much for this opportunity I just found out about you a couple of weeks ago and I’m enroll in one of your classes .

Briah - I don’t like summer. I have a chronic illness which get much worse when it’s warm. So in summer when it’s hot, I stay inside the house, curtains closed, trying to keep it inside as cool as possible. Spending my time reading and doing creative stuff. I only go outside for a walk at night. Elderly people here go to Spain in winter to escape the cold. In my case it would be great if I could spend summer at the North Pole sketching some polar bears.

Leigh-Ann - We have just finished Summer here in Queensland Australia. Even in winter it is pleasant to sit outside -find a sunny spot out of the wind and create some art.

I have never been and look forward to the cultural spectacular – vibrant colours and delicious foods.15. May 2015 – 00:31

My youngest is graduating from high school so I am starting to imagine my well deserved “me” time. Grabbing my summer school art bag to go will be fun. Hope I can win the free class! Thank you for all the inspiration.15. May 2015 – 01:39

Kristin Brown - This summer we are taking a bunch of mini trips close to home. Sometimes we forget to enjoy where we live. But they will all be someplace we have never been! What I enjoy most about Summer is the warm days, beautiful nights, and being outside with my kids!!!15. May 2015 – 02:50

Lynn B. Stubbs - I hope to travel to Spain and relax in the sun. It’s been a long winter and it will be great to just chill out and spend time with friends. Maybe drink a Mojito or two and stroll along the beach.15. May 2015 – 03:05

Will de Boer - I like to win a space in the summerschool, because I can use some creativity. During my holiday in Switserland I broke my leg at three places.

Natalie Godfrey - My summer starts June 11th with my niece graduating from high school and we are all going to Universal Studios in Los Angeles.15. May 2015 – 05:11

Jutta König - I will travel to the German North Sea coast, to Nordfriesland. I always write and smash in my travel journal in the evenings then, art journalling would be quite great and funny as well and a great addition! I am more the spring lover, but in summer I love being able to sit outside of a café or restaurant and seeing lots of good-humoured people :)!15. May 2015 – 06:13

Melfina - This summer I hope to have 5 days with my hubby to a small beautiful greek island, and traditionally we are having a week with the whole family and friends to a summer house close to Athens where we live and work. What I most love about summer is relaxing on a sunbed on the beach after swimming, hearing the sound of the sea and reading a book or watching art videos! It makes me feel so peaceful and happy!15. May 2015 – 06:29

Susana Santisteban - Hi Andrea, I am living in Munich so, I will try to spend my summer with my family in Madrid :-) there is nothing most amazing than visiting the family, seeing how big are my two beautiful nieces :-). What a love most about summer is the SUN!!! you know that Germany has not that much :-) so for me the SUN is like an injection of energy :-). Well, that is it.
I take the opportunity now to tell you that I do love your work. I took the FACEcinating Girls Class and I enjoyed sooo much. Because of you, I start painting and get knowing this amazing world about Mix media art, handmade cards, etc! I really thank you for that. My life is more interesting now than before :-) Aufwiedersehen :-)15. May 2015 – 07:10

Titic Dulu - Every summer (at least a week) we spend on the beautiful Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea and enjoy the sea and sun.15. May 2015 – 07:12

Kiki - I’ll spent almost 2 months by the sea in Chalkidiki Greece.Not totally relaxing but taking care of various… issues. What’s not to love about the summer is the right question lol! I love the sun,the sea,the sand under my bare feet,the sound of cicadas on the very hot days and maybe even a small summer storm. Thank you for the chance to win a seat. I’m sure it will be an awesome class! Off to buy me some neocolors now :)15. May 2015 – 08:28

I would love to be a part of this art journaling class!15. May 2015 – 09:03

Evelien - I’ll spend my vacation in Koblenz this year.

May 2015 – 09:07

Pam - In the summertime? Well when I first moved to Scotland from Australia many years ago, my husband said ‘just remember, there is no summer is Scotland.’ So now I am grateful for any day when the sky is blue. It may seem mad, but we are hoping to spend time camping and walking in the far north of Scotland this non-summer. It would be great to get some inspiration from this class, for those times I am sitting in a tent in the wind and rain!15. May 2015 – 09:10

Carola Lugtigheid- Lindeman - This is so great. This year I am spending my vacation in Kroatie. I can’t take lots of art suplies with me so this is the solution. Looking forward to it15. May 2015 – 11:02

Maria Tsakiridou-Konstantinidou - I love summer and my holidays in my country, Greece! This class must be real fun!15. May 2015 – 11:47

Donna Davenport - I usually stay close to home because of my pets. I live in Texas so the one trip we use to make every summer was going to the beach. The Texas beaches are not as elaborate as the west coast or what I’ve seen of the east coast but it’s a beach, it has sand and waves. When my adult kids are able to go it’s fun because they enjoy the beach as much as I do. My husband isn’t a fan of sand. We haven’t gone in a while and I miss the beach. My husband seems a little more willing to go now because we just don’t go anywhere otherwise. I love summer because I love the warm of the sun. I don’t care for the cold. I always feel it’s a season of fun weather I go anywhere or not. My one child that is still in school has a break and we able to do things locally even though it’s not a trip away from home. We don’t have the hustle a bustle of school activities. We can sleep later in the mornings if we like. I would love to win a spot in summer school. Learning to be creative is important to me so It would definitely be something I would look forward to.15. May 2015 – 13:23

April Lopez - We will be spending time with our new grand baby boy, as much as possible.15. May 2015 – 13:57

Caroline Duncan - oooo… sounds like a great and fun workshop! Our summer trips are usually 3-5 days in length up to the mountains of NC, VA and TN then in late summer after schools start, we go the coast for a few weeks since we don’t have kidlets and while the weather is still great beach weather. :) Crossing my fingers and toes, I ‘ll be the lucky one to be chosen!15. May 2015 – 14:21

Elaine Edwards - I’m looking forward to staying at home for most of the summer. The highlight of my summer will be attending a Donna Downey class in North Carolina. Woot Woot!! I’d love to win a spot in this class!15. May 2015 – 15:00

Artistami Eva - Hi Andrea, I haven’t been on vacation in a while now, but I was intending on doing so this summer. I am caregiver to my mom and last year she underwent two surgeries, and one was straight away after being diagnosed with colon cancer. Although she is not clear of it, she is stable. I intend to take her to Puerto Rico for about a month so that she can visit with the family, it is one of the things she most desires right now, then to Florida. This class came along just in enough time to take with me as I can just sit back and relax (very much needed and with what I so love. ART!!!). I am praying on relaxing, after the stressful events of the past two years. It can only get better.
Oh, and I want to thank you for this wonderful Art Journal Summer Class. I am grateful for most of the teachers in which I have had the pleasure of taking classes with, and have their books. And I love the excitement of getting to know about new artists. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. I can’t wait. Thanks again.15. May 2015 – 15:09

Rosalind Whitesides - Hi and thanks for the chance to win. I am going to Israel this summer and already need a suitcase for the supplies I want to take. I love the weather in summer and the casualness (don’t think that’s really a word) of it.15. May 2015 – 16:16

Eva - Hi Andrea, I haven’t been on vacation in a while now, but I was intending on doing so this summer. I am caregiver to my mom and last year she underwent two surgeries, and one was straight away after being diagnosed with colon cancer. Although she is not clear of it, she is stable. I intend to take her to Puerto Rico for about a month so that she can visit with the family, it is one of the things she most desires right now, then to Florida. This class came along just in enough time to take with me as I can just sit back and relax (very much needed and with what I so love. ART!!!). I am praying on relaxing, after the stressful events of the past two years. It can only get better.

Beth - Hi, I love summer especially when I can get near water. I spend time at a primitive cabin that is close to a few beaches and I go camping. Would love to learn how to pack light. So many supplies and so little time! I am starting to incorporate drawing everyday and that is packable but I miss my colors. Love this type of summer school. http://www.breakthroughtoglory.com15.

Gaglio AM - Hi, I don’t travel during summer time and I don’t even take holidays at that period. Why? Because travelers are coming to “me”. I live on the French Cote d’Azur therefore summer time means “high season” for me and a lot of work. This said, I would love to spend my free time looking at the videos of the summer school. That would really be “my summer time” moment.
Thank you for offering one post for free.

I’ll be spending my summer on my back porch, alternately playing with and avoiding the splashes of my wild (soon to be) 3 year old. I’d love a lesson or 20 on how to make my art projects so portable so that I could bring them out and work on them while he plays! I love the warm nights and all of the outdoor activity options of summer! I hate winter, and feel like I come alive when it gets warm again!21. May 2015 – 00:54

JudithAnn - I love the open road so the hubs and I will be traveling in the gypsy wagon (RV), going where the wind and whimsy takes us.

Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot in the Art Journal Summer School!27. May 2015 – 13:40

pelArgoNNiA - Hi Andrea and thanks for the chance to win! I’m Anna from Sweden and summer is just about to start here. The days has gotten really, really long (sunset at 9.55!) and we have had temperatures up to like 18°C (yes, I know. It’s not a lot!). This is my favourite time of the year. Everything is so green and I start to feel alive again after the long, dark and cold winter! I love the long days we have in summer. Apart from spending time in our summer cottage we plan to make a trip up north to watch the midnight sun.
Have a nice summer! I hope to spend it with you! 😉27. May 2015 – 20:43

Christina Betts - Awwww so wonderful that you are giving away a spot!! Yippee!!
Both my husband and I are self-employed and summer is our busiest time! But we make sure at least twice a week we are finished work by 3:30 and then we drive to “Marks” beach… hahaha… we named a tiny beach after my hubby’s name! LOL We live only minutes from the lake so the drive is quick! Then we relax and enjoy the sunshine, water, and nature… it is very relaxing and just what we need for our busy schedule… Thank you for the chance! xoxoxo30. May 2015 – 00:01

What I like most about summer is the being in the sun, cooling off in the water, sitting in the shade with a nice breeze hitting your face and a refreshing iced tea in your hand!! THe kids playing outside waiting for the ice cream truck to drive by. Watching the boys eat their ice cream as it drips down the side of their hand. There are just so many things I love Summer!!

THank you!
Carmen30. May 2015 – 23:23

Barb T. - I live in a colder climate so Summer is very short here, so I look forward to it all year long. Not too many big plans this year. Just taking care of the kids while they are home from school, visiting my family, and maybe later this summer traveling out of town and staying at a hotel for a small vacation. I also have some flower gardening to maintain and watching the birds and hummingbirds. Would love to win this giveaway, thanks for the chance!31. May 2015 – 03:12

Ready for some Tea and Cake – and some artsy Inspiration?

I’m super excited to be featured in the new Blog Series “Tea and Cake with Gracie” on the Blog of wonderful Tamara Laporte (click) … if you haven’t checked it out yet, I’d be super-happy if you would jump over and take a look … Gracie had some very interesting Interview Questions for me and […]

jasmin - Liebe Andrea, deine Artjournal-Seite war mal wieder atemberaubend! Ich wünschte, ich könnte ein paar Jahre vor drehen (ohne, dass ich dabei älter werde natürlich) um dann schon mehr Erfolgsschritte mein Eigen nennen zu können.
Dein Interview war sehr inspirierend und motivierend um einfach zu starten. Ich kann es bei meiner 7-jährigen Tochter sehen, die malt einfach drauf los und hat in ihren wenigen Jahren schon so dazu gelernt. “Just do it” sollte ich mir vornehmen um dann nächstes Jahr auch in meinem “Artjournal” blättern zu können und den Lernprozess zu bestaunen.
Vielen lieben Dank, dass du uns an deinem kreativen Prozess teilhaben lässt.
Kreative Grüße
