Live Your Love Story

Happy Valentine’s Day! I always loved decorating a shoe box as my mailbox. Then I’d look at all my cards as soon as I got home from school. Fun times. I took the heart pattern idea from the book cover and painted cards.

Painting hearts is relaxing. Painting hearts is an easy way to create a hand painted card. Oh by the way, my ebook is available for free until February 18th. The paperback should be available today if not by Saturday. The paperback is available for a specal price of 7.99. Here’s a link to my author page on Amazon.

Thank yu so much for reading. The tribe keeps on growing and it means the world to me that I can share my art with you. Have a good day!

Sennilier Swatches and Free E-Book

This weekend I tried my new Sennilier 24 color pan set. I’m happy. Not bad for a student set. The colors are smooth and easy to work with. There are a few colors that aren’t as warm or vibrant as I’d like them to be. I can fix these with a little India ink or mixing. The first three rows are pan swatches. The fourth row is premium paint swatches. There are a few differences. This is a good set to practice mixing various tones and for painting earth/nature tones. The blues and greens are beautiful. Some of the browns are too. My E-book will be available for free until Friday Oct. 11th. The Fall workshop will begin Friday. Every Monday and Friday I will post a fun project idea.

Update + Free books + Stamping

Update On The Book

Today I sat for three hours. I didn’t think about how terrible my writing was or any of the perfect lettering I adore. Well, just a tiny bit. I didn’t question my lettering. I did so only at moments when I knew I could do better. I did. I just drew and wrote and wrote and drew.

Then I went back to all of my designs and the writng and ideas are good. A voice said, ” Your work looks good. Don’t every aplogize for your art again.” I’m learning so much too. Instead of using a whole sheet of paper I can fold one sheet in half and staple an actual book. I’m proud of my work. I believe in the content. Everything is great but… BUT I probably won’t make the Friday September 6th deadline. In all fairness, my original goal is by the end of summer.

Stamping

After three hours of writing and drawing I needed a break. I do love to paint. I’m wokring on a few quotes. For this project all you need is something to stamp with and some acrylic paint. I used size 10 paint brush. Oh and a pen to write your quote. You could use paint. I atually worked on another textture one with a make-up brush but this print needed finishing.

I’m going to change the lettering and add this to my society 6 shop.
