Happy New Year! I want to create a special post that sorta sums up my year for 2017. You know that although I had been blogging since 2016, I only got my own website in 2017. Boy have I been blessed with this outlet to share my creativity and inspire others to do something creative … Read More
I am using this page as a sampler of sorts. These are a few zentangle patterns that I have not used very much if at all. The outermost pattern is called Doozaly. The curtain pattern I have seen drawn so many times but this is the only time I have ever attempted it myself. I … Read More
I started this page wanting to get back to the fine little details I have been longing for so long. I have gotten away from the projects that took more than ten hours to complete and moved to simple doodles that I could complete over a 45 minute lunch break. I love that I am … Read More
First off, let me say that I absolutely love the rain. I love listening to the rain and I love how everything looks so green afterwards! We have had a lot of rain lately and its supposed to rain some more, and I’m totally okay with that! Because I love the rain so much, I … Read More
For those of you that have been following, you know that one of my hobbies is playing World of Warcraft. No other game has captured my attention this long. I dabble with Hearthstone as well as Diablo III, but World of Warcraft has been my game, since vanilla. Yes! I’m one of THOSE vanilla players. … Read More
Fall in love with page 11 of my 2017 Sketchbook.
Check out this mandala on page 10 of my 2017 Sketchbook!
Lines and circles, a technique I use to overcome artist block. See how I did it on Page 9 of my sketchbook.
Watch how I experimented with watercolor pencils on page 8 of my sketchbook.
This is the seventh page in my Sketchbook. I wanted to do something very different than the other pages. This didn’t turn out like I had envisioned, but at the same time it seems very fun. I learned by trial and error how to draw a new flower for future drawings. The flower at the … Read More
I really like how this page turned out. I love the depth, the natural elements and the mixtures of greens. I used gel pens, color pencils, and Staedtler Pens. I decided to embellish the end of the page with Washi Tape. Tell me your thoughts on this page.
So could I just leave this here without any words? No I don’t think so. I wanted to make a bunch of flowers, however, It didn’t really turn out like I wanted it to. So, I built some circles around it. I can’t scratch this and move on because it is in my journal, so … Read More
Oh, Mandala decorated with washi tape. I haven’t used washi tape too much in the past but I really like the way this turned out. This Mandala is really detailed. Even the tiniest flick of the pen created depth. I did try something a little different in the center. I usually create a larger center. … Read More
Page 3. I’m loving this one. I wanted to do overlapping mandalas and my original plan was to create one mandala using a half page, and then build another mandala on top of it. As I was in the middle of the pencil work, I decided to make it look more like an eclipse. And … Read More
Very simple doodle on page two with one of my favorite quotes. The heart, both mechanical and organic, somehow through science creates a beat that we live our lives by. I tried to capture each of these elements in the piece. I would love to hear your thoughts on this page. Any comments or suggestions … Read More
I just want to tell you guys that i have had a lot of sketchbooks in my life, but none that can compare to this one. I found this on amazon for around $25. Now, you might think that is expensive for a sketchbook, but this one is huge. I added a picture below to … Read More
