Really great quick class with a lot of useful tips for beginners! Thank you!
Very basic but really well explained.
This was a great class! It really helped me see how to do upstrokes and downstrokes. I was getting pretty frustrated and I feel much more confident after watching her courses. The free drills are very helpful as well. I highly recommend following "The Lemonade Store"

Paper crafts, lettering, brush lettering, and watercolors are my jam. I also love working with beads and crystals, as well as crochet and other needlework hobbies. So, you could say, I dabble in lots of things, because creating makes my heart happy
