My New Giveaway YouTube Video Series & Websites With Free Graphics

Happy 2017 Dear Ones!

I hope everyone had a marvelous end of year and is doing well! I've been very busy celebrating the Holidays with my wonderful family and friends (those nearby and those on Facebook, ha ha!), then my 31st Wedding Anniversary (I'm married the most fantastic, sweet man!), then Valentine's Day (with that same sweet man!), as well as art, travel, preparing new videos, and life in general - but then, I'm happiest when I am busy! Even so, I am more dedicated to helping you learn to love and be happy with your art than ever, so will be making more videos and blogging in the upcoming months to help achieve that goal!

If you enjoy my Blog and would like to see new posts as I write them, please subscribe by entering your email in the box to the right labeled "Follow By Email." When you receive an email asking if you want to confirm this, please click on the button. I'd also love to have you subscribe to my "Happy Art" YouTube Channel, by clicking on the link below. In addition to free instructional videos, I am starting a new video series featuring a giveaway that a lucky subscriber to both my YouTube Channel and my Blog who comments on the video will win! I will give away one item during each video from my dear friend, Martina's, online shop "My Rusty Crown." They carry wonderful mixed media art supplies at excellent, discounted prices and has one thing that is rare these days in an online shop - excellent, personalized, customer service! Martina goes out of her way to assist each customer in locating the perfect item!

My YouTube Channel is here:

Now, more on how to obtain free graphics online...below are some wonderful websites I've found that advertise free graphics, although, even though they advertise "free," you must always look for and heed legal disclaimers and other notes on each website to be sure you are using their graphics properly. For example, some want recognition, others allow personal use only - not commercial use, some will allow limited commercial use, etc. Simply searching for "free printable graphics" can provide excellent results. They may ask you to subscribe by adding your email address. This can also be productive, as they may notify you when they obtain new graphics and may send other freebies. Below are a few of my favorites. If you know have other favorites that you'd like me to share, please note these in the comments section below this blog and I'll publish these in another post. Happy hunting!
  1. Vintage graphics from "The Graphics Fairy":
  2. "Free Vintage Digital Stamps":
  3. "MeinLilaPark Printables and More":
  4. Quotes/Phrases:
  5. Planners and lists from "Me and My Big Ideas":

  1. I'm so happy to have found this extra way to connect, as I'm trying to spend less time on Facebook, so I'm looking forward to reading and exploring your delightful art here.

    1. I too spend lots of time of Facebook! I love Daisy Yellow Art's Page, Carolyn Dube's Colorful Place To Play and Maremi's Creative Cafe. They all have excellent blogs as well and the Cafe has wonderful free vintage downloadable printables! It's hard to prioritize time with so many fun things but I'm thankful you've found me and will keep in mind to post my art here as I often do it daily in the FB pages and forget about my blog! Looking forward to talking with you more :)
