Hello from Minnesota!

Post by LovePaintedToo on Fri Jul 05, 2013 10:36 pm

Hi there!  I just wanted to introduce myself.  I'm new to the forum, but already I've been inspired by all of you talented folks!

My name is Cati and I'm living up in Big Lake, MN.  I've been face painting for about a year or maybe a little more.  I began painting faces when my church (Westbridge in St. Michael) asked me and few other members to try a hand for a Sunday school celebration.  Even using Snazaroo palettes from Michael's, I instantly took a liking to the art of face painting and the priceless smile in the mirror when a child looks at their newly decorated face.  Surprised)

I did a couple birthday parties with just a few brushes and two Snazaroo palettes before deciding to buy some nicer paints.  (Snazaroo is a GREAT starter product, but the white, particularly, leaves much to be desired).  So I upgraded and practiced a bit on my poor children, haha, and have been pretty successful in getting gigs from referrals and leads from my website.

I'm inspired by Heather Banks and Lisa Joy Young and Daizy Designs, all of whom I found on youtube before discovering this neat forum.

I'm very much looking forward to learning and  "picking your brain" and sharing ups and downs with you all.  Thanks for the welcome!  Surprised)

Thanks for the welcome!

I used WIX. I've been really happy with them. The site was easy to build and navigate.

Welcome to the Forum!
There is a thread for you to post and share your artwork to a warm, kind audience in Show and Tell.
There is a thread to play Face Paint Tag called TAG! You're It! (Summer is the busy season for us, so the game may have stalled for a little while).

Oh, I was really hoping to make it to the jam on Thursday, but I'm heading out of state. Smile

I will definitely try to make the next one!
