Some Sneaks and some Deets on my Online Class!

So I still have 4 layouts that I have to do by Wednesday, then 
hubs is off to China & I am playing single parent again, with 
my son's birthday coming up over the weekend, so things are 
beezy, beezy around here & not much hope of me coming up
 for air any time soon!  Anyway, I just wanted to share a 
couple of sneaks with you here and give you an update 
about my online class.

My problem has always been TOO MANY IDEAS, not "not enough" 
so it's taken me a good while to decide on how to actually 
get started, and I've finally settled on 
how to add that extra oomph to your layouts with
 painterly effects.

The class is going to be aimed at beginners and beyond, so no 
worries if you've never splodged any paint on a page as yet.  
Of course I'm also bearing in mind that not everyone (in other 
words "internationals" like myself) may have access to all the
 new-fangled products out there, so there will be lots on offer
 for  those that can only find a bit of paint, gauze and found items.

I won't be hosting it here through my blog, but via a separate 
platform. I'm still in the planning stages & am not the fastest
 worker on the planet, preferring to be thorough, but ultimately
I'll be offering 3 separate videos, 2 technique based ones then 
finally a layout to put those new-found skills into practice.  

Thanks so much for all the feedback I received!  
I'm excited & looking forward to learning a new skill myself - 
how to get my ideas across easily on video - at last!  
A dream come true for me :)
