PREREQUISITE FOR CLASS: Floral Bouquet + Pattern Play Online Class

Now that you’ve made gorgeous expressive florals in Floral Bouquet + Pattern Play, let’s create a series based on this art!

You have done the intensive work of creating your floral designs, patterns, and color palette. Now, you can continue to use these to create new original art. Each time you do, you will discover new expressions within you!

To get the most out of your effort and time, it makes sense to turn these beautiful floral and patterns into a series.


Creating a series from all the raw material that you’ve spent time gathering and creating is a win-win for an artist from a creative development and business standpoint. It is also a gift for others.

1. You can continue to develop ideas and designs with a lot of the work already done for you. (It is efficient!) You will be amazed where this journey leads. Essentially, the original has clues and prompts for future work. This will guide you in new directions that will surprise and delight you!

2. Create smaller affordable art. Often people will fall in love with one of your large originals but cannot afford it. A wonderful alternative is to create a series of smaller pieces that complement the larger painting. By creating a series of small originals based on your large piece, you are giving people a chance to own something they love.


I share how I pulled elements from one of my floral bouquet paintings to create a smaller series of 9 paintings from start to finish.

I demonstrate the balance between using pre-designed elements while still listening to what the painting wants to be and how to incorporate both practices together.

More conversation as I work about my painting approach and philosophy.

This class  literally saved me during the uncertainty of Covid-19.

This experience has forever changed my outlook on life, and was one of the most meaningful experiences I’ve ever had in a class.

Carrie created many enriching and soulful activities that encourage her students to discover and celebrate all of the beautiful blessings in life.

Carrie is so loving, and she created a wonderful online community for this class that has been totally supportive.

This class has been truly transformational for me. I highly recommend this online class!



If you need to “reboot” your creative soul and need an unconditional generous spirit to guide you,

a safe nonjudgmental space in which to do it, and an abundance of inspiration and joy to push you through it….meet Carrie Schmitt! I can’t say enough about her courses. They are relaxed, very well paced and addictive! She IS a blessing!


I took Carrie’s Blessings class last spring and it was simply wonderful.

Carrie is so warm and welcoming and she puts her heart and soul into the relationships she builds with participants.

I loved the information she presented about different types of blessings and how she was able to give my creativity such a positive boost.

I enjoyed the different perspectives that everyone brought to our class and loved how mutually supportive everyone was.

Whether you’re an artist or writer or just curious, give this class a try. I think you’ll be so happy you did!

May you join Carrie on this special journey into blessings and may your time together spark joy inside your heart.
