July's Fever: 2 Shows, new lines and a lot of travelling!

Hi there friends!
This was one crazy month: I was rambling through Canada, teaching classes, then moved to USA to Salt Lake City and Atlanta where we were showing the latest Prima releases and promoting my new Art Medium Lines: Art Basics, Art Ingredients and Art Extravagance! 
Those of you who are interested in detailed photo-relation from the classes or shows may be happy to visit my Instagram profile here (it can be watched online, no registration needed!) or go to my official FB page where I uploaded all of the photos together.
I'm really grateful for this amazing, crazy month: I've met so many wonderful, friendly and talented people on my way who gave me so much love and encouragement to go on. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart: students, hostesses, helpers, friends. You made this "time away from home" really special to me and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

I assume you are wondering what I was doing for so long?
I can't tell you all - It would take a novel to share all the stories I remember from that trip, but I can show you a fun peek of what we were up to during Sierra Pacific Summer Show 2014 (also called  Mixed Media Madness...) in Salt Lake City, USA.

I was lucky to be asked to introduce Scrapbook.com followers to my Art Medium Lines which resulted in 2 sneak peek videos listed below for you :)




 Of course I was both excited and extremely stressed, so I hope you will forgive me all the mistakes, funny spelling, grammar...and so on ;)
I know you would like to learn more about Art Mediums too - but please, be patient a bit longer!
We are all working on the website info, booklets, videos and far more interesting content for you - and it all will be launching through August and September. I promise, I will keep you updated!

Here is the first video - short description of Finnabair Art Mediums by Prima. 
They will be shipping to stores in mid-August!



And below you will find a sneak peek of product demo I was doing both in Salt Lake City and Atlanta.
I hope it will help you a bit in getting familiar with my new "babies" :)



Huge thanks to Scrapbook.com for creating these videos! You are the best!
Again - sorry for any mistakes, but believe me - it was a huge pressure... I think I wasn't breathing at all!

I hope to hear back from you - what do you think about the idea of Art Basics and Art Ingredients? Do you like the choices for Art Extravagance Line? What else would you like to add to these Art Mediums?
Don't be shy! :)
Sending warmest hugs to you all

Looking forward to your new lines coming out. Excited to try out the 3D Gel Medium. Love the colours of the Art Extravagance line, very user friendly as they will go with everything :)

Glad you are safely home, it must be so hard being away from home but on the other hand it must be exciting to meet awesome artists and teach and show your new products to your followers. I love the look of all the new products, what I love the most is the fact all of the mixed media products are together, its so nice to see it all together. In the future seeing more texture products will be nice, I love mixing my glitters, sand or beads, into pastes to make my own pastes. I am camping at the moment so I can't watch the video's but I can't wait to get home to see them. Kezzy :-) xxx

Gloria Stengel said...

I love the idea of the glass glitter and mica, etc. to add to the other mediums. And the jars are so big! Lots of use without being stingy! {smile} I cannot wait to see all of it in stores!

Wendy Morris said...

PocketSize said...

Wow, that stuff is amazingly awesome! You did a great job in the videos, not to worry. I really like the Art Sugar and the Graphite Texture Paste. Yum. I like the smaller stencils, too.

nicoleqmullen said...

The videos are great, and I love the new lines, love the colours included in them and can't wait to try them out!

Kezzy said...

Wow wow wow, back from hols and at last got to view the videos. Wow there isn't nothing else that a mixed media artist needs, you have thought of everything, the gorgeous modelling pastes, the extravagant texture pastes are bliss, the beads, sugar, glass glitters, mica flakes are lush. The black resist canvases, the gesso including clear, the crackle pastes and chalkboard paints. Truly amazing, cant wait for them to reach the uk shops. Thanks for such an amazing line of products. Kezzy :-) xxx

Kelli said...

Your new babies are wonderful and I can't wait to get my hands on some of them!!! Thank you for a phenomenal class at Donna Downey Studios this summer!!!

sara j said...

You did a WONDERFUL job in the videos...no umms, ahhs, just good information on some cool products. I am particularly drawn to anything which might resemble fairy dust (the fine glitter) and that platiunm crackle looks divine. I have no idea how I will use it, but I'm definitly going to be using it! Thanks.
