About Me

My photo

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

Celtic Challenge 2

Celtic Challenge 2

Below is the way I have decorated this challenge.

I will be issuing Celtic Challenges from this blog from now on. 

 Below is the outline. My challenge to you is to decorate the outline however you wish. Suggestions are shading, colouring, painting, or doodle patterns. If you are into other crafts like Pyrography, Folk Art, Cross Stitch, Quilting, Card Making etc then use the design that way. 

The outline in this challenge is similar to some of the designs I will be presenting in my new book.

I am at present designing a book that will have around 100 Celtic Outlines for you to copy, decorate & use however you wish. My thoughts are a downloadable PDF at this stage rather than a book. I would appreciate you opinion on this, as the designs are almost finished and I need to decide on the layout. It will also include Doodle Patterns and other decorating ideas specifically designed for Celtic Knots.

I hope you all enjoy this challenge and please post your finished designs in the Mr Linky below, so that we can all enjoy your work.

5 Piece Art Challenge

5 Piece Celtic Weave Art Challenge
I was nominated by Ninna Hellman on Facebook to join the
5 Day Art Challenge.
The object of the challenge is to
post on Facebook a piece of your art and nominate a different person each day to enter the challenge.
Here are the first 2 items I posted:
I have used the Celtic Weave to produce these pieces as I like the look of it so much.
As many of you like challenges I challenge you to post up to 5 different Celtic Weave designs on the Mr Linky below over the next month. They can be traditional or non traditional, I like both. You can post one or more, however your time permits.
 Just Remember an Artist is one who produces Art, not just a person who can draw or paint. 
Start Producing Guys.
I can't wait to see what you come up with.

New Blog on Celtic Knots with Judy

Announcing My New Blog Site

I have decided to add a Blog Site dedicated to Celtic Designs. As you can see by the header my designs are far from Traditional. I do love traditional Celtic Knot Designs but am not interested in drawing what has been done before and probably far better than I can do.
I am more interested in creating new ways and easier ways to draw designs similar to the original Celtic Knot designs. I want to show people who love the look but feel they cannot draw how to easily produce what I am doing. Also to give very creative and talented people some interesting twists on the original Celtic Knot designs.
There is a Classes, Gallery, Outlines and Teaching Videos Page as well as this Home page for you to get inspiration from. My Classes page shows all the classes I teach at present not jut the Celtic Knot Classes.
I have Celtic Knot Classes starting this week in two locations. Check out my classes page for all the Class information. BOOK NOW don't miss out.
I will be adding more as time permits. Hope you enjoy.
