This is our monthly e-newsletter where I catch you up on what we’re doing at Createful Studio—and what I’ve been sharing over on the blog lately.

Monthly Round Up: What we made in Art Fix Classes Lately


We've made some crazy fun artwork in the studio in October:

Mixed media art journal pages featuring hand-built focal images, Artist Trading Cards, which we strung into into gorgeous mobiles, and then paper cloth and plaster cloth—which most of us are still working with to create unique art pieces, from books to hangings to canvases.

YOU SHOULD join us! 

This month we're creating "13 Layers" mixed media pieces, collage with photographs and some paper/fiber weavings...all instruction is provided as most art supplies. Registration details on OUR MEETUP SITE (and below).



What I've been sharing on the blog

What's a blog if it's not useful, entertaining or inspiring?  I share stuff I know and think about and learn so that you can dive in more deeply into your own creative life.

I completed all 31 ink sketches for the national/international Inktober 2017 challenge this month and shared my creative journey here and here and here.

Learn everything you need to know about Gesso in It's not paint (or is it?) It's Gesso

Demystify the differences between kinds of glues or mixed media in Which Glue Again?

I shared a personal October wrap up—a blog ritual I hope to do every month going forward, This Month in My Creative Life

Finally, in my new creative series, Diary of An Art Journal, you'll find my Diva of a Diary talks instead of me—and shares insights into the magic of art journaling that even I don't understand. You'll find the latest installment in this admittedly zany idea of a series here.

On the Createful Studio Calendar


I am offering TWO Saturday Art Fix classes in November instead of the usual one: November 11th and November 18th, both 1:30-4:30pm and both covering the popular 13 Layers Mixed Media piece. There are still a couple of seats open, I believe. Register on our Meetup Site.

During Thanksgiving week, there will be a Tuesday Art Fix class but not a Thursday class.

The studio will be closed December 14 - January 2nd. Art Fix classes will resume beginning Thursday, January 4th.


The December Art Fix class is on the calendar for December 9th.

The next Open Studio is Sunday, November 19th, followed by the last Open Studio of the year, December 3rd.


Keep up with Createful Studio on our website Calendar. Art Fix Saturday and Open Studio dates are scheduled several months in advance.

Tuesday and Thursday Art Fix classes are scheduled every week unless otherwise announced here and on Meetup.
