Dress Your #TechTuesday with New Summer Watercolor iPhone Cases!

Kimberly HeimbachComment

Have you been introduced to my friend Casetify before?

If so, you already know about their top quality and reputation for on-trend designs. So I was stoked when they asked me to join their artist collection and sell my original watercolor art on their iPhone cases. It is a great way for me as an artist to get a little income from my artwork, while not having to deal with the logistics of it all. While you get to benefit from a variety of my original art available on quality iPhone cases shipped quickly to your door!  They also offer a variety of styles including grip cases, snap cases, wallet cases and glitter cases (yes I said glitter!).

I actually just ordered the pineapple case you see above but I also have it available with a solid white background and glitter.

As you probably already know if you follow me on insta, I am currently obsessed with pineapples! I assume others must be to, because we only have a couple spots left for my pineapple watercolor workshop next Thursday. If you want to join us in Laguna Beach for the evening, please purchase a ticket as soon as possible to save your spot!

The other great thing about Casetify is that they offer deals every day. Like literally everyday, just check the top announcement bar on their website while shopping. Today it is: 

Treat yourself like it's Christmas! Spend $75+ and get 25% OFF | USE CODE: JULYMAS | ENDS TODAY

I will share photos and give an update on instagram when my pineapple case arrives. I am pretty sure it is going to be here before my pineapple workshop, but we will see!

Take a look at my watercolor iPhone cases and tell me which is your favorite in the comments below, or maybe give it a heart on Casetify. If you are in the market for a case I would love it if you purchase one for yourself but I also think it would make a cute gift! Speaking of gifts, in the future I am thinking of offering custom art on phone cases. How adorable would that be for the upcoming holidays?! Too soon to mention? You know it will be here before you know it. Think how cute a custom pet portrait or a fashion illustration would be on an iPhone case!?! thoughts on all this? Let me know in the comments!  Have a good Tuesday evening, eat some tacos! -Kim

Watercolor Pineapple turned Tote bag: Paint, Sip and Print with Ladyfolk Studio!

Events, Watercolor and WineKimberly HeimbachComment

I cannot tell you how excited I am for my next workshop: Paint, Sip and Print, Watercolor Pineapple turned Tote bag!

Have you heard of a direct to garment printer? Commonly referred to as a DTG? It's tote-tally awesome!

Well let me explain what this has to do with the next workshop...

You see, we will be using this bad ass DTG at the Soul Project to print your original watercolor pineapple painting directing onto a canvas tote. How amazing does that sound?! You will get your very own tote bag, with your art on it to take home. Stash your new travel watercolor set and towel in it so you can hit the beach in Laguna to show it off, because everyone loves pineapples!

I will begin the by teaching you all the basics of watercolor painting, including wash techniques, the process for painting, making a composition, dry brushing, and color mixing. After that, I will walk you through a step by step process for making the perfect pineapple painting. You will actually get two chances at this, so you can pick which one you want to print on your bag!

Once you are happy with your painting and it is good and dry, I will be scanning them and printing them on the bags while you get to enjoy yourself sipping wine, chatting with new friends and taking a look in the shop. You can see photos from a past watercolor workshop at The Soul Project here.

The Soul Project is offering a special discount of 15% off this evening for workshop attendees. You are sure to find a new dress for yourself or a gift for someone else. They literally have something for everyone, even mermaids! Not to mention the perfect beach attire clothing for kids, men, and women.
