Ever After 2017 Blog Hop and Give Away! *Closed*

Hello everyone!

EA2017-ITEACHONEAI have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Ever After this year! I feel so thrilled, honoured and HAPPY!!! And… I can give away 1 space on this magical new collaborative art course! Yay!!! Keep reading if you want to find out more about Ever After and if you want to find out how you can win a spot!

First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven’t heard about it yet. Ever After is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by the amazing Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons AND their hints and tips on how they developed their own style. That sounds great right? And from my own personal experience I can tell you: “It is not just great, it is AMAZING!!!”

ea2017-mariellestolp2I took this course as a student last year and it was a life changer. Not only did it help me find my own voice, but it also gave me the courage to start pursuing my dream of becoming an artist. Since Ever After 2016 I started posting my work publicly on Facebook and Instagram, I started filming tutorials for YouTube and now – one year later – I am one of the teachers… Can you believe that? Please pinch me because I can hardly believe it myself! 🙂

For my lesson I have chosen to portray one of my very favourite characters from Harry Potter: the unique, open-minded and sometimes brutally honest Luna Lovegood. You just have to love Luna! I will be sharing with you my love for whimsical characters, watercolours and the things they can do. Just to give you an idea of what to expect, I have included below a little protrait I did of Queenie Goldstein from Fantastic Beasts. Now this is just a journal page, not a finished piece and my lesson will be way more detailed.

  3. Hello Micki, I have taken many online courses and see so many great artists. I see I have learned much more about media than find my uniqueness. I am hoping this class would bring something out from me that I havent tapped into yet. Thank you for the oppourtunity.

  4. I know Harry Potter but never read the books so I don’t know all the characters…Luna although sounds interesting maybe I should read them. lol
    thanks for a chance


  5. Thank you for the inspiration… How amazing it must feel to have been a stubbornly a year ago to know be a teacher on the class WOW!!! I am so excited to see how this goes, I would absolutely love to win a spot on Ever After 2017. I love Hermoine xx


  6. Luna is awesome, but I also love Hermione (and have dressed up as her for several Halloweens).


  7. I’m already following you on instagram and am a big fan of yours! Lifebook 2017 has rocked my world and of course I can’t resist all the fairy tale lessons! I have brother rescue cats … a siamese with a lightning scar “Mr. Potter” a ginger kitty “Mr Weasley” and the newest addition to the family a rescue lab/coonhound mixed named Dobby… so really I can’t choose.. I feel a kinship with Hermione Granger…. if we had a girl pet, that would have been the name. 🙂 Shared my fb page.


  8. I’m so glad you’re going to be a part of this course! It’s really hard to choose a favorite HP character, but I like Bellatrix Lestrange (a little dark yes). Thanks for a chance to win a spot. 🙂


  9. Shared! Marielle, your work is so beautiful! I’m so grateful you are teaching in Ever After this year! My favourite HP characters are Hagrid and Hermione.


  10. Its crazy, but I have watched most of the Harry Potter series but I don’t have a favorite character.


  11. I thought i shared this blogpost, but FB automatically adjusts to your newest blogpost. How can I share this one?


  12. Hi Marielle. I love your gorgeous artwork! My fave Harry Potter character would have to be Harry himself – loyal, reliable, brave, who wouldn’t love him?


  13. Hi Marielle, I love your art and can’t wait to see your lesson in Ever After! It’s very hard to choose just one favorite character from the Harry Potter series – I love so many. But I guess I would have to say Harry is my absolute favorite. 🙂 I shared this post on my Facebook and already follow you on Instagram. 😉


  14. I love hearing about all your recent art successes! Congratulations! Picking my favorite Harry Potter character is tough- I love so many of them. If I have to choose I’d have to say Hermione and Luna are two of my all time favorites.


  15. I love your art and love Harry Potter, I almost didn’t enter because I had such a hard time choosing a favorite character… silly, right? lol I have to say I love Ron. Also already following you on IG. 🙂 Thank you!
