Original Work Needs…

some personality. Here is really a before picture of my art and you can see that hand lettering with some watercolor pencils would make this art stand out. Hope you agree.
I choose the Lobster font because it is a simple sweet font.  Keep in mind I am exploring a variety of  alphabets. I think hand drawn would make my images pop. What do you think? As I work on hand lettering I will post updates here.

P.s. thanks to all of the new subscribers and likes. I appreciate it.

Pinterest… who knew?

So I have been on this quest to learn watercoloring and had so many questions. When I get an idea in my mind it is very hard to let it go. I get obsessed with it almost until I find what I need.  Countless searches  and still no supplies. I have been looking on You Tube and some videos did help, but still didn’t have a clue.  I have been asking around. I browsed a couple of local stores and had yet to find what I have been looking for.

Then all of a sudden I remembered how I always find amazing things on Pinterest. What do you know I found so much on watercoloring and hand lettering too! So any how I am so excited to buy my supplies and finally paint. Watercoloring  and hand lettering are just the creativity and uniqueness that my business needs.  I feel good about my dream.  I visualize my hand lettered original quotes and poems on a water colored embelished background and I love it.  I need to get some brushes, a palette, watercolor pencils, and some more micron pens and calligraphy pens. So what is your latest dream and what are you doing to reach it? Please comment below. Have some ideas or tips to share?

Here is the link so some of the supplies I will be getting and the awesome tutorials I found. http://www.pinterest.com/sweetpeachshop/art-101/

Update on Would You Rather Be A Cat Or Dog?

Last week I asked this question here on wordpress and etsy forums. Most people wanted to be a dog. That was a fun conversation, I do appreciate all of the participation.

Lately I have been thinking about these water colors. These are not Windsor but they work great for the card and poster I made. Do you have any water color tips or tutorials? Want to show your work here? Post it in the comments below.

Would You Rather?

Once a month I will be posting this question. It is a creative fun writing activity that I learned about while guest teaching. I love it. So here it is.

Would you rather be a dog or a cat? Why?

I would rather be a dog because dogs are loyal and they are great best friends. Dogs have a keen sense of smell and they are smart. I believe I am a pretty good judge of character. Oops did I use the word judge… LOL

So what would you rather be and why? Please comment below.

New Art

admit-one-ticket-copyhappiness-copy

Lately I have been trying out some new recipes. I made whole grain pancakes and am looking for a good muffin recipe today. I made pizza last night. I love to cook, there is something amazing about taking simple ingredients and combining them to make something delicious. This is why I love crafts and art too. I have been drawing more and editing my poems. Ticket to Dream and Happiness are inspired by this idea of taking an adventure and following your dreams. These art posters seem perfect for my ideas lately. I have had enough of the second guessing and wondering. I have to put aside the excuses and give life everything I have. Take the pledge with me. What are you needing to do: lose weight, change careers, take a trip or learn a language? Do it.

Happy Fourth everyone!
