|Here we go kids...I promised all month long that I would dish out some AWESOME specials, giveaways, sales and more throughout my "Grand Opening" so to speak of Sweet Repeats Studio Shoppe, Art by Jodi Ohl so let's continue the momentum of this POST (hurry time runs out on the 5th to enter)and keep the fun going! What's up next? As some of you may know, one of my creative partners is Gail Schmidt of Shabby Cottage Studios and Creative Workshops|
|Fun with Faux Encaustic|
Heck...since you are here right now....let's not wait until October first kiddies...let's start the sale now!
How do you take advantage of this special? Purchase any two workshops of the three and you will get a REFUND for 1/2 of the second workshop. Our shopping cart doesn't allow for bogos but this is one way we can work around the system! This gives you a savings of $22.50 off the regular price of one of the workshops. That's a hard deal to beat especially since the work shops are OPEN ENDED which means they are a self study course throughout which you can watch the videos over and over again at your convenience (if you are like me and up at 3:00 am...you can watch the videos and create alongside of me:) The workshops are guaranteed to be up for at least one year so you will have PLENTY of time to take the courses and work through all of the projects. Click on any of the above images or links to read more about the classes. *Remember this special is off my classes only and will end on October 31st.
I'm going into day three of my new job and I can tell you that life is crazy, chaotic at times, exciting, a little stressful (mostly because of all my to-dos), and through it all I'm still loving it :) I would hope so with only three days into the adventure...lol...but I digress....one of the BIG events I've been preparing new work for is the Norcross Art Festival in Ga this weekend (October 1st and 2nd). I am THRILLED to go back for the second year in a row. Even without an art show, the town of Norcross is delightful and charming, add 135 or so artists and a festival that is top notch, well you have all the makings of a fantastic time. Featured here are two of my new pieces I'll be bringing to the show which are slightly different then my current work...I do like to play with abstracts every here and there and these pieces contain all the facets of my style (texture, layers, slightly grungy, edgy,) but in a more subdued color palette. Okay so I did add some pops of bold colors but who's counting! ;)
This is my favorite of the new pieces, "Baby Gemstones" 12 x 12. I love the little delicate bubbles appearing as well as the rich texture that begs to be touched. What does the change in 'programs' say about me? Not sure...lol...maybe its just saying that a girl can change her 'wardrobe' every here and there...sometimes we need to change our direction a bit to find the best route to get to the place we heading towards in the first place. Not saying I'm going in this direction forever, it's perhaps a 'rest stop' along the way as I take a breather before moving on to my next collection. Ya...that's a good way to put the change in direction. It's welcome rest stop along the way. I hope you love it as much as I do. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop in my booth and say hi this weekend! I better get going...still lots more to do. I may not sleep for 4 days friends! Someone PLEASE bring me some coffee!! xoxo Jodi
