The House of Art

Gesso Relief on Journal Pages
March Video on the above technique is up at The House

March content is up at The House of Art! I'm honored to be included among the amazing group of artists featured this month as we explore the use of Texture in our Mixed Media work. Just pop over to see educational videos from LK LudwigSusan TuttleJournalartista, The House's creator Emme and Me as we explore various ways to create depth and interest to our projects. You'll also be able to read several artist's takes on the subject of "Allowing yourself permission to be a Student" throughout the month.

So, what is The House of Art? It's a new Mixed Media online community in which articles, videos and forums are posted on a monthly basis. And the best part? It's totally and completely free. That's right, all you have to do is sign up to become a member and gain access to all the education and discussions: you can post your work, meet other artists and find a friendly place to hang your hat . . . Oh! And there's also an amazing giveaway this month (I don't know how Emme does it): sign up to win a Graphics Tablet from Monoprice! How cool is that?! You have until the end of March to try your luck . . .

So check out the videos - mine is on creating Texture with Gesso Relief - and have fun! And if you do watch mine, make sure not to miss the final few seconds. . . just sayin'. . .

Hi Kristin, Those journal pages are delicious! I've gone to the House of Art site, entered the giveaway and put the new button on my blog. It still has some bugs I guess 'cuz I wasn't able to find your video and some of the catagories weren't loading. Can you help me find it?
