Spring Watercolor Flowers . . . and other smells

Generally speaking I don’t think of the scent of flowers when I paint them. I just love painting them, especially these Spring Watercolor Flowers I painted for +The Graphics Fairy LLC  membership.u

What's your favorite floral scent? Or what's the worst smell you've had in your home or car? Drop by and chime in!

Organize Your Stencils - Fast & Easy

If you're a crafter/artist and have a ton of stencils, there's a good chance they're all laying flat in a drawer or cupboard. Only problem - you can't see which one you want unless you pull out the whole stack!

Here's a super fast way to keep them organized:

Artist, Blogger, Teacher, Google+ Writer
Hello! I'm Colleen, self-taught artist and author of Just Paint It!, an art, crafts, decorating & DIY blog. From simple spray paint to sophisticated stencils, New Year's to Christmas, I have one solution for every decorating dilemma - Just Paint It!

Some Popular Projects
I have taught decorative painting to beginners in craft stores for many years. Now, because of Google+ Hangouts, I am able to teach painting to people all over the world, live online! For those who can't make a scheduled class, I also have videos too. Check my current class schedule here.

Check my YouTube channel for different painting projects. 

Paintings For Sale
I painted custom wall murals for years but now I enjoy painting canvases that can be shipped anywhere. There are a few ways you can purchase my paintings - 
Painting & teaching have been my passions for many years, but in 2011 I found a new passion - 

GOOGLE PLUS! ------------------------------------------------------------

I enjoy writing about Google+, specifically for creative bloggers. Many bloggers have been resistant to Google+ for a variety of reasons. I do my best to explain the many features & benefits in clear & simple posts, written directly for creative bloggers. Below are links to my most popular Google+ posts.

The most common complaint I hear about Google+ is that bloggers just don't have time for another social network. In October 2012 the Hometalk Community hired me to present a webinar to show bloggers how they can maximize their Google+ reach in just 15 minutes a day. 

SNAP! Creative Blogger Conference
I am honored to be invited to speak at SNAP2013 about Google+ for Creative Bloggers. It's my first blogging conference and I'm excited to share my knowledge of Google+.

Google+ HoA Campaigns
Last fall I was invited by a googler to head up a week-long campaign for Halloween DIY Hangouts on Air. The HoA's were so successful we continued these campaigns for holidays since then and have more scheduled each month throughout 2013. You can see all of the HoA's and the entire 2013 schedule at Crafty Hangouts

I was invited by Hometalk to give this Webinar in the Fall of 2012. It runs an hour but I've added time stamps in the Comment section. Click on any time stamp & the video will fast forward to that topic.
