Happy Tuesday! Here’s a little trick I used when painting a Christmas sweater on my son a couple days ago for my Christmas cards! I love that he still lets me do this! This year I used a lot of fun stencils to speed up the process, and finished it all in 1 hour and 20 minutes (photo below). Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Happy Tuesday! Today I’d like to share a great tip that I learned from my artist friend Linda John! I’ll show you her cool trick for making super easy snowflakes without using any stencils or even a brush!
Happy Tuesday! Today I’m going to share a simple little thing that I do to kick it up a notch at parties with “custom” table coverings! What do you do to show your clients that you’ve customized your offerings to their party? Share in the comments!
Happy Tuesday! Since my team and I will be painting some fun feather designs to complement our owl bling this week at the MN State Fairgrounds, I thought I’d do a little tutorial on painting feathers! How do you use feathers in your designs? Please feel free to comment and share your own feather related designs and tips! Thanks so much for stopping by!
It’s Tuesday! Today I am frantically prepping to run my Glitter Glamper booth at the Kickoff to Summer event at the MN State Fairgrounds, so I decided to resurrect an old video! Check out this video for my tips to create a perfect Yin and Yang…they are much harder than they look and people often ask me how I paint them. Watch to see what I do!
Last week my website host was malfunctioning and I was not able to share my tip here on my blog, so below is last week’s tip. Unfortunately WordPress seems to let me down often, so if you check my blog again and find nothing on Tuesday at 10, be sure to check out my Facebook page as I’ve had the best luck so far getting my scheduled posts to show there! Thanks so much for watching!
Happy Tuesday!! Today I’d like to share how I like to keep track of how many kids I paint at a gig! Keeping track can be really useful, especially if you are just getting started and aren’t sure how many kids to tell future clients that you can reach in an hour. Knowing this will help you better estimate for future gigs! It also can be very helpful to have this number in your back pocket, in case a client comes back later complaining you didn’t reach everyone. You can tell them exactly how many you reached, and compare that to the number you promised them in your contract.
This week I came up with a fun idea for some headband balloons that I have been calling “head huggers!” These are SUPER easy and fast to make, and there are SO many possibilities to mix them up with different characters! I put together a little tutorial, and I can’t wait to see what YOU do to take this idea to the next level! Be sure to share your own creations…we love to see your work!
Since the standard heart shaped cat prints that so many twisters love to use have been hard to come by lately, I thought I’d try something different! The cat heads I used on my kitty head hugger I purchased on Amazon. They come with cardboard ears and a roll of glue dots. So for parties, what I did was cut apart pieces of the glue dot roll so I had short pieces with two dots each, stuck them in place on the ears, and then when I need to attach them at a gig, I can just peel off the backing and stick them on. I think they look pretty cute, and a great alternative to the heart shaped cats!
