Over the past two weeks I have been enjoying all of the artwork with Christmas themes which have been shared on facebook. So I have invited 13 artists and artisans to share their Christmas art works and a bonus how to video from Fiona Stolze, in porcelain painting, oil painting, decorative art, botanical painting, embroidery and more. I hope these artworks inspire your day…and maybe you’ll create a Christmas artwork yourself! The following artworks are in no particular order.

Thanks Sonia for the opportunity to write for your beautiful magazine, I had a lot of fun putting together this tutorial on organza and silk ribbon roses on a handpainted background.
Here is a free series of tutorials I have done for any of you who are interested in a detailed explanation of how to hand paint on fabric for your ribbon embroidery. In these tutorials I have painted violets onto muslin fabric, using acrylic paints.

Are you tired of painting the same old thing?
Maybe you’d like to try something new and experiment a little, but don’t know how?
Have you ever wanted to know how to create a contemporary piece of artwork or dabble with textures and gold leaf, but are too scared to make a mistake?
I’ve created an e-Seminar which will help you develop and brighten your colour palette, loosen up your brushwork, and play with texture pastes and gold leaf to create a contemporary feel to a painting. You’ll learn something NEW!
Even if you have limited experience in painting, you will be able to achieve great results with this e-Seminar, due to my step-by-step method of painting in acrylics. See one of my student’s past works and comments.

How do Live e-Seminars work?
During LIVE e-Seminars, you’ll have me on the screen in REAL TIME, teaching you with my video demonstrations every step of the way in a small virtual classroom.
You will get a seminar booklet with more instructions and painting guides for you to use on hand during the seminar…it is yours to keep!
There is an EXCLUSIVE facebook group, created just for my classes so that you can share your progress, chat with other students AND ME during the seminar period, for that extra support and sharing of creativity.
Also, there are great discounts on materials by our e-Seminar sponsors and giveaways!
The BEST thing, is that you can learn from the comfort of your home, anywhere in the world!! All you need to do is check the date and the time zone you live in to attend the seminar. If your timezone is not there, contact me and I’ll get back to you shortly.
