About This Course
Loving Tree I Am is a two part course.
Section one – is actually part of a collaboration with Larissa Russel from Creative U – A Year In Color. You learn how to paint this beautiful watercolor and create a simple Zine. This section has only one video, but it is over an hour long. I may eventually break it down, but for now this is what I have. 🙂
After I finished the painting with you, my mind went into a different direction as to how this piece could be made into a little more fun!
Section two – you will be making a blank book/journal from the same painting. I show you how to add extra colors, using color pencils and pan pastel. Then you embellish it with wire, fiber and textured paint. You learn a very simple book binding technique to finish your book. This section is broke up into parts so you get a better point of view.
Skills needed: watercolor painting, embroidery, wire-working skills are a plus!

What techniques will I learn in this course?
This is a watercolor project. I show you the basics with using watercolor paints. The second part of the project, I show how to stitch on paper including french knots and straight stitching by hand.
Will I need special equipment?
You will need a sewing maching or you can hand stitch together the entire piece. A scanner is preferred, but you can use your camera to take a clear photo with a little extra skills. A printer is also needed to print the Zine. Camera, Printer, Scanner are all optional if you do not wish to make the zine.
Where can I buy my supplies?
I provide a downloadable supply list with links to where I typically purchase my own supplies. Many times, Amazon has what I need. I do my best to keep your cost down as I know art supplies can be costly.
About how long will it take me to complete this project?
With any project, time varies on you and where you live. I live in California and paints dry super fast. Typical time, I would say this project can take 1 to 2 days. When I work on projects like this, I can be done in about 4 hours. But again, it depends on your skills, location, and how fast you like to work.
Is there anything else you teach in this course?
I do show you close ups of making certain stiches by hand.
What if I get stuck and need some help?
I am here to help you with any issues you may come across. I do have a day job so certain times of the day I may not be able to assist you right away but I will do my best to respond as quickly as I can. You can contact me by email anytime.
I can also help you through Zoom in real time if needed.
