Hand Lettering and a Freebie

I’ve been busy creating new artwork for BluePrint. This is my first big show in the States and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I will be showing with Cinnamon Joe Studio. If you’d like to see more of my artwork feel free to contact them. I’m excited for the opportunity to finally be getting my artwork out there! I recently purchased a Cintiq 13hd and have loved illustrating on it, especially for hand lettering. I feel that I’ve finally found a tool that works for me. I don’t really consider myself a painter, and it’s frustrating that I can’t “undo” something when working that way. So being able to work in Photoshop with paintbrushes has been the perfect balance for me.

 

I love the chalk feeling of the image below. I think I only used one brush. I had been trying to create this in Photoshop for almost a year, but just couldn’t get it to look right, until I purchased a Cintiq 13hd.

 

The hand lettering brushes I use are from Shauna that she created for Retro Supply. You can grab a few of them for free here, or you can purchase the whole set here. Totally worth it in my mind! Another great resource for brushes is from Kyle Webster. I created the image below using them.

I designed these posters as part of my Personal Progress (round 2). As a leader in the Young Women’s program, I have the opportunity to earn my Young Woman Medallion again. When I was a youth, I earned one and I’m excited to be earning it again. But this time, as a mother. It really is a wonderful blessing in my life and I’m happy to be sharing these with you.

August Newsletter Freebie :: Just Sign Up!

I’ve been trying my hand at some brush work. I just purchased this pen after reading up on it and I must say I am very pleased with it! The best part is that you don’t have to keep dipping your pen over and over again in the ink. I have found that it dries out easily though, but nothing a quick dip in a cup of water can’t solve!

Do I have a fun one for you this month! I’ve been working on my brush and ink work and decided to put it on a card. And to make it more fun, I’ve added watercolor dots, for those of us who like a little fun in our day! But for those of you with more modern dad’s, here’s a plain ‘ole black and white version! Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing Dad’s out there! I sure have a great one! He taught me to be honest and work hard at everything you do.

I also have a great husband who is an amazing father to our two precious children. How blessed I feel to have him in my life. I love you Chris!

Valentine’s Arrow Printable-boy version

At the request from some of my readers, I’ve decided to make a boy colored version of this arrow printable. The colors consist of orange, red and blue!

These super cute Valentine’s Day Printables are a cinch to make! Simply print, cut out and add a sparkly glitter pencil, pixie stick, glow stick, or in this case a striped paper straw. It’s that easy.

Only 2 supplies are needed, paper and pencil. Hooray! I picked up my glitter pencils from the dollar section at Target, but I’m sure you can find them most anywhere. Glitter is hot right now!

If you are looking for the girl version, you can download the pdf here.

Directions: Download the boy version or the girl version. Print and cut them out using the lines on the edges as a guide. Make a 1-1.5 inch cut on each side of the text. Write the names you want and then add the pencil, pixie stick, glow stick or paper straw. Easy peas!

Day 20: Coloring Page, Design a Pattern FREEBIE

Want to keep the kids busy while you’re getting ready for the Holidays? Give them the assignment to either color the wrapping paper, or better yet design their own patterns on the wrapping paper. My daughter, who is almost 5, thought the assignment to design her own patterns was a little tough, but loved the challenge of coloring her wrapping paper in Christmas colors! She kept asking if certain colors were Christmas colors. Too cute! Enjoy this freebie!
