Road to Radiance Day 8- Joanne Sharpe!
Artist today is the infamous Joanne Sharpe! I first found Joanne on Youtube, then in a Strathmore card making course! I loved her instantly. She was humorous and totally made EVERYTHING super easy! She connected with me most because she gave me BASIC supplies as a foundation. Supplies which are accessible from just about anywhere.. even a local pharmacy. She also added to my ART PEN fetish!! She introduced to pens I had never known, Koi water colors, Peerless Water colors. She made me realize that my dark shell in appearance actually held a ABUNDANCE of COLOR ready to explode!! My favorite COLOR by name may be any hue of purple.. but my heart BLEEDS for NEON any and EVERYTHING! She taught me to embrace my handwriting.. Which isn't so terribly bad! I don't own a lot of written stamps or sentiments. Joanne helped me build the confidence to embrace our imperfections in not just lettering but also doodling! I am not a carefree doodler.. I am so focused on the perfect picture.. or as close to it as I can get. Joanne has taught me several times to let it be loose.. frame it.. and let it go.. I have had MANY a FUN DAYS with watercolors and and waterproof pens. Below is my cover my journal.. to one class I took with her based on her book The Art of Whimsical Lettering .
