Meet France Papillon & Jamie Ridler of 21 Secrets Fall!



From now until October 1st, every Friday here at Dirty Footprints Studio, Hali Karla the new 21 SECRETS Creative Director, is honoring the amazing teachers of 21 SECRETS Fall  by personally introducing each of them to you here! We are certain that you will love these artists as much as we do! Be sure to check out each artist’s links & come join us in 21 SECRETS Fall this October!  To see past teachers in this series just click HERE.

Do you know the fabulous France Papillon yet? She is a full-time mixed media artist joining us from Belgium! What I love about France’s art is how she has married her experience scrapping with her love of gritty collage, texture, pattern and color – it just pulls you in! What I love even more is how generously she shares technique and idea, straight from her own rich, earthy creations – not just when she teaches workshops, but also in her blog series, Journal on Mondays. We are in for a treat with France’s workshop, Transparendipity!

When I think of Jamie Ridler, I think of pure, joyful inspiration! Her love of expressive creativity is downright infectious. She is on a mission to inspire creative living in as many people as possible through her popular website, podcast, workshops and more. What’s even better than that, is that she courageously lives out of the box herself, modeling what she is most passionate about bringing to others. She is going to take us on an unforgettable journey into our personal symbolic truth in her workshop, Seven Soul Symbols.
