In between working on my weekly sketchbook pages of animal art illustrations, and trying to create something everyday, I’m also having fun practicing hand lettering combined with watercolor wreaths. I turned these watercolor postcard paintings into new notecards in my Etsy shop.
Drawing all the time makes me happy, so Practice Practice Practice has been my motto this year. It’s also great to be able to add new products to my etsy shop based on my drawings and watercolor paintings.
I made a set of art cards to represent our Christmas weekend. I’ve been wanting to make a set of cards that look like gift tags, so I traced a template, and then experimented with some pattern doodles and journaling on the fun activities we embarked on and the goodies I received from loved ones.
It was fun working freehand with just a set of Micron pens and Sharpie markers.
It’s fun to look through our Flickr group to see all the great illustrations, techniques and experiments we’ve done over the past year. I made a set of art cards I made for the final Winter swap Michelle and I are doing, but she hasn’t received them yet so I will show them to you soon. One set left to make for the year…
After a weekend full of entertaining, my brother, my niece and I decided to go skiing today. It was a fun, exhilarating, and relaxing way to spend a winter day outside.
Did I ever tell you that my all-time favorite thing to do is ski? I LOVE to ski! I learn how when I was about five years old, so it’s in my blood.
I didn’t take any pictures over the holiday weekend because we hosted a Christmas Eve dinner and a Christmas Day dinner. Things were quite busy in our kitchen! After all those guests and meals, I can’t believe we don’t have many leftovers. Just enough for one meal.
I have a lot to catch up on, so I’m happy to have a quiet week ahead of me. Hope everyone had a wonderfully festive holiday weekend too!
