Hello!! I hope you are doing good and are enjoying the crisp January days!!
In my latest tutorial we will be making these gorgeous Standing Hearts!!
They are a celebratory standing ovation for your own heart, thanking it for all the beats it has given and the beats yet to come!
It is a promise to look after your heart with good food and exercise, and to protect it from harm, whilst keeping it open to all the goodness that life has to offer!
I hope you enjoy making this heart with me, and I would love to see your version of the Standing Heart!!
Here is the tutorial video
Hello everyone!! I hope you are well and enjoying the very first days of a new decade!!
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year as I think every day should be a opportunity for newness!
Can you imagine how good it feels to wake up in the morning and step into a new you? So that by bed time you have become a slightly better version of yourself?
That one step can be a great journey all of its own.
Maybe you have decided to start arting for the first time?
In this video I can show you how to use simple watercolor pencils to create some colourful bookmarks!!
I hope you have a go at making them and please do share them in the Facebook group!
I didn’t use references for my fishes but if you need some ideas to work from here is a link to a Pinterest search for colourful fishes
Hello everyone! I hope you are well!!
Today I finished a new sweet girl painting, she was inspired by my niece who has beautiful golden brown hair and green eyes.
I had lots of fun painting her, from creating a layered background, drawing the form of the girl as well as adding details.
All of which I will be able to show you in a free video tutorial for this painting which will go up on my YouTube channel here YouTube Joanne Seale
I cant wait to see the sweet girls that you create too, please join my new Facebook group to be notified as soon as the Video Tutorial is published.

Hello! I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday and welcoming those cosy autumnal days? It can be the best time of the year, a time of change..
Today I would like to share with you some of my paper designs that are in fact gift boxes! I began creating these when I got my Silhouette Cameo paper cutter which I love dearly.
It inspired me to design paper cutting templates and fuelled a desire to start collecting paper.. I now have shelves and boxes full of exquisite patterned paper and high quality crafting papers.
I create the templates in Adobe Illustrator and the Silhouette Studio Designer software, these are then exported as vector SVG files which can be downloaded by other paper crafters who cut them on their personal machines.
They can be filled with goodies and used as display pieces, I hope you enjoy them :)
It’s time for October’s Art For Your Screens!!

I’ve just finished creating this delightful whimsical horse in watercolours, I layered the transparent layers of paint to make a dreamy floaty background then sketched a very whimsical floaty horse, I used opaque gouache for the highlights and watercolour pencils for the details.
The caption ‘Be Free’ was added in a mixture of gouache and watercolour and was inspired by the carefree and playful pose of the horse.
I think of it as a reminder to be playful in real life, as this can be very freeing, make time for play! :)
