Spiffed Up and A Fresh Look

Did you received our latest news letter, Creatively Speaking, this week end? Yes, great. No? Then you can subscribe in the right hand column here on our blog.

I’ve had such a difficult time trying to get emails out this fall. Some of the email providers just won’t deliver emails from me.  Called me spam, imagine that. I’m still working on getting the email problem worked out, but, I have switched the news letter to a different format, using Mad Mimi. Don’t you love the name. So you should be able to receive our news that I’ll send out about once a month.  Watch for upcoming events, workshops, and juicy tips and techniques from my blog.

Meanwhile we’re finishing up our paintings for this year and making plans for 2015.  We’ve adjusted the schedule so be sure to look for the updates.

You’re may be finishing up ornaments so here is a finishing tip that I like to use.  I paint the edges of my ornaments with a Krylon Leafing Pen. This gives me a beautiful finish.  I can even create a border on the edge of my ornament if I like.  I’ve used the Krylon Pen to finish the edge of the chickadees.

To finish the Pheasant below I wiped the edges with DecoArt Metallic Lustre, Iced Espresso in this case. This add just the right touch for a finished look. This is especially nice if you have an embossed surface.

Just a last note:  You are on our email list because you requested to be there.  I don’t solicit emails from anywhere.   If you don’t want to receive our newsletter you can unsubscribe on the newsletter. When you mark something as spam you stop everyone on that email provider from receiving the emails, and they might want to be able to receive emails from me. So just unsubscribe. If you are getting emails from me that you don’t want to receive, let me know and I’ll be glad to remove you from the list. Thanks much.  Liz
