Free Merry Xmas Packet - Your Decorative Painting Resource - Creative Chronicles
November 29, 2013

Hello everyone!

Hello to all my painting friends!

I hope you're all busy painting and crafting in preparation for Christmas and other holiday celebrations. I've been painting and teaching since the studio re-opened last weekend and it feels so good!

Here's what you'll find in this issue…

  • New Designs - New E-Pattern Packet
  • About the Website
  • Buy 2 or more Get 50% off!
  • Free Pattern Packet
  • Quote of the Month



Just a heads up that more of my designs have been accepted by PaintWorks and Paint It...Today magazines. I will let you know which issues are coming out next as soon as I get the dates. There is a project for glass painting which is really contemporary and elegant as well as a springtime clock. That's all I can say for now.

I have just added my latest E-Pattern Packet which is called Angel Trio. It's so elegant yet easy to paint. If you can float and do dry brush highlights, you're good to go! It was featured in PaintWorks Special Holiday Issue in 2012. I've made it available here for those of you who don't have that magazine. The surfaces are available from Wendy's Way in Canada and Viking Woodcrafts in the USA.


As most of you know, Your Decorative Painting Resource was entirely created and continues to be updated and maintained by yours truly. I love the website and it's a true labor of love. Many of you have written in to tell me how much you love the site and all of the free information on there. Thank you so much for the feedback. It really fuels me and keeps me going.

You'll notice the image of a cup of coffee on the top left side of the navigation bar. It says "Do you enjoy what you get from our site? Why not treat me with a nice cup of coffee." When you click on that image you can read about my new campaign.

There is no obligation to do so but if you love the site and wish to contribute a few dollars to help me with the ongoing cost of development and maintenance, I'd be more than grateful. I take mine black!

BUY 2 or more GET 50% OFF

In the spirit of the holiday season, here's an offer just for you. Buy any 2 or more e-pattern packets and save 50% off the entire order! Add the packets to your cart and the discount will be applied automatically. Easy-peasy!

The packet selection can be found here
