I am not an artist. But I'm making an attempt to be one to make a special gift for my daughter for Christmas . . .
This is the sketch I'm working on tonight. Very simple. Very crude.
I'm doing this years gift on card stock dividers that I am folding in half. You can see the hole. I think they are cool because I'll add
washi tape to the dividers to 'spiffy' them up.
I'm kind a going with an altered book idea. We'll see how it turns out.
I'll be adding water colors to this sketch.
I've moved my journaling/lettering/doodling supplies from the closet to a table in our bedroom. I've also moved the computer from the living. (I use it for inspiration)
Here are a few of my pencils and pens in vintage containers.
This container (from the '70's) was a flower pot that my father had a plant in.
It holds my marker 'type' pins. I'm learning to look for fine tips when I buy.
Opps a little blurry. Sorry. This sweet little container I received with flowers when our son was born in 1979! It's holding my ink pens.
And one more pic. to share a new set of pencils that I'm not real happy with. Actually I'm not totally happy with any of my markers or pens.
But check this one out . . .
This is the lavender color I used in the middle part of the sketch just below the words. I don't see any metallic. I was expecting cool shiny. It's not!
This entire set of pencils is very, very light. I bought them marked down at Hobby Lobby.
I quess. I really need to invest in better tools. But, I think I need
Alot more practise!
So are you making an gifts this year?
