Collaboration with Glowbiotics

I am very excited to see this project come to fruition! I was asked by Glowbiotics to create 2 designs for their new cosmetic bags. One has a deeper vibe with the indigo succulent and other is much brighter with a raspberry hue. What is great is that they come in 2 different sizes! I have been working on this project with them since October of last year, so to see them in person makes my heart happy. 

Glowbiotics is a probiotic based skincare line. They develop formulas to work from the inside out. My favorite product is the hydraglow cream oil!

Here is the awesome news! They are giving my viewers 20% off any of the 4 bags with code GLOW20

You can purchase the blue bags here. You can purchase the pink larger bag here and the the pink wristlet here

Enjoy glowy skin in a pretty new bag!

Thank you always for the support, Keep Creating!

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday!

I am so excited to announce that I just launched my FIRST online watercolor workshop. You all have been asking so I delivered 🙂 . Skillshare, an online workshop platform,  reached out to me about a month ago and guided me through the whole process. Every week I would have a review and receive useful pointers. I have to say Skillshare, especially Mary and Allan have been great to work with 🙂

My first online workshop, can you believe it?!! Can you tell I am excited?!! Haha! This first video will be the first of a series called Desert Botanical and the first video will focus on painting succulents! I will go over materials, show you color swatching, stroke practice, etc!

To access the class and enroll use this link http://skl.sh/29YZs97

For the launch I am giving the FIRST 25 people FREE ENROLLMENT! Click here to redeem and be 1 of the 25!

The video was a labor of love and I am so excited to share it with you all 🙂

Keep Creating,

Rachel

The Beauty of Painting: Focus of my Workshops

poppies4brighter There is so much beauty in the world but we all haven’t had the time/opportunity/motivation to tap into it. You would be surprised but each person possesses a certain type of creativity. I consider myself a visual artist. My creativity is stimulated by photos and  what I see in front of me. Some people are stimulated by what they read, write, cook, solve, etc. I love working with my hands but it is different than a sculptor loving to work with their hands. When people approach me and say, “I do not have a creative bone in my body,” I never believe them just because I feel like everyone has some type of creativity, but they are either not recognizing it as being creative or not channeling it.poppies1With my workshops I really want to help people channel a creative outlet. You may not be a painter but I feel that if you experiment with one outlet it has the potential to lead you to your true passion. My workshops aren’t only about teaching you skills but they are also a way for you to tap into your creativity. I like my workshops to be more mindful than technical. I like people to work with an open mind and put perfectionism to the side.poppies2

My next workshop is at The Simple Farm. This is the perfect environment to stimulate the mind and senses.  They have beautiful gardens full of flowers, herbs, vegetables, etc. It is lush with greenery and takes you outside the Arizona desert landscape and into a sort of wonderland. Here is what I am striving for in the workshop:

Stimulation of the senses in this lush environment

Learn tips and tricks in painting wildflowers

Explore the imagination and not be concerned with the idea of perfection

Create a beautiful floral piece inspired by the gardens

To continue your search of beauty, I am providing you with a few art materials to take homeguide2

Join me on The Simple Farm May 22nd to channel your creative outlet!

Beverages and Muffins will be served! Register here

Join in on the whole “The Create Series” and sign up for The Florette’s Intro to Foraged Floral Design on May 15th and Lifecreated’s Intro to Photography with Food on May 29th here !

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you at the Farm! If you want to be informed of my upcoming workshops email me at rachel@pinkpuddlestudio.com and I will put you on my mailing list for workshops!
