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.

  11. Je hebt dit zo verdiend! Volgens mij heb ik het al een paar keer gevraagd: ben je al uitgenodigd door Tamara. En nu is het dan zover.
    Je hebt een prachtige, tedere, eigen stijl.
    Ik wens je heel veel succes!
    En Harry Potter… Ik ben de enige op de wereld die geen grote fan is geloof ik 😂 ik heb wel een paar films gezien hoor, samen met mijn dochter. Dus laat ik dan maar kiezen voor Harry zelf, vooral in zijn jonge jaren 😄

  12. Oh no! I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan (hope this doesn’t automatically disqualify me 😳) so I asked my daughter who her favorite is. She said Neville Longbottom – so I guess that’s my answer too 😬😊

  20. It is hard to pick a favorite Harry Potter character- So many loveable characters! But, I think my favorite was Mrs. Weasley. She was always taking care of her kids and any other in her path, especially Harry. And she was strong and loveable.

  24. I like a character that keeps me guessing and Snape does that for me up until the very end. He chose a difficult path in his life out of love which I can relate to. Can’t wait to participate in Ever After.
