This week marks the end of the current design team 6 month term, that also means the Lulu Art store is now 6 months old, in fact our first day of sales was 23rd August, 2013. I don’t know about you but this past 6 months has gone by in a heartbeat! Applications are now closed for the new team and we will be making an announcement and introducing them here on the blog and on facebook within the next few days. An amazing amount of talented girls applied and I’m so excited by the talent out there.
Now who’s ready for a bit of colourful jewellery? In this weeks design team article Monika shows us how to make a selection of pendants using some recycled kids puzzle pieces and some copic markers. Watch the video and find out how to make yourself some colourful pendants.
This week I am delighted to show you this fabulous piece by Cassandra called Full Bloom Beauty. I love the colours Cassandra has used in this piece as well as the techniques she has used. It’s so full of life and texture, just lovely.
Happy weekend to you all!! As you probably know by now Lulu Art moved premises in the last week or so and I’m glad to say that the new digs are fabulous. We’re fully unpacked and there is lot’s more room to move and expand with the possibility of workshops in the future. Lot’s of exciting things in store for the business in 2014!
Todays design team item is from Anne Cahill. Watch Anne as she shares with us her entire process in fast motion video! What a treat to see the whole project from scratch, every brush stroke, every technique. Fantastic!
How are you all this week? Getting ready for Valentines Day? Celebrating having some art time now the kids are back at school? Whatever you’re up to I hope you find some time to check out this weeks design team piece by Robyn Wood below. But first I just wanted to let you all know that we are currently taking applications for the next Design Team. If you think you’d like to apply please see our post on our facebook page which has more information.
Now lets join Robyn as she makes a colourful accordion folder and a set of artist trading cards to fill it. The folder is coloured with Dylusions and Heidi Swapp spray inks and a simple salted background technique gives lots of beautiful texture. If you haven’t tried making ATC’s before, Robyn’s simple steps will guide you through the process using our collage sheets.
