More drawings

Hey look! I’m posting early for once! I finished work much earlier today and still had energy to create way before going to bed! Also, I found my inspiration on Pinterest and just had to do my art right away, so as not to forget or lose interest. But first, here is yesterday’s mandala, drawn on a 12 x 12 cardstock but it only measures approximately 7″ in diameter.

It was fun to work a little bigger but I want to try even bigger and bolder!

Now, today’s creation is a little doodle from postage stamps. You can find the inspiration here. I really enjoyed doing this quick doodle after gluing down the stamps. I need to look at my old stamps to see what else I can come up with!

Thanks for visiting and have a nice weekend!

Friday fun

Finally Friday! I’m slowly getting used to my new schedule at work. It’s a little more work but I love it. Of course, more work means less time for creating but I still managed to draw a mandala last night. Actually, it’s the last mandala in this round book. 20 pages, 20 mandalas. I’ll try to take a picture of all of them soon to show you the variety. This does not mean that I’m done drawing mandalas, only that they’ll be in another book and maybe bigger…


Tonight, I had a little more time and decided to try something different. Earlier this week, I accidentally left a paintbrush out with some paint on it. Since it’s a cheap brush, it wasn’t a big deal but instead of throwing it out I decided to alter it. So I added more acrylic paint to the bristles as well as glitter glue, used alcohol inks for the metal part, light modeling paste on the handle which I then wrapped with some twine, neon ink on the rest of the handle, and cute googly eyes. I love it! Now I have to find a place for it!


Have a nice weekend and thanks for visiting!

Weekend update

Hello friends,

I’m back with another weekend update.

I kept my art simple this weekend with only drawings. I have a feeling I will be doing a lot of drawings and doodles this month. It’s so quick and easy, plus I can do it anywhere. Anyway, here are Saturday’s postcard and Sunday’s mandala:

Today, I decided to do another page in the Complete This Drawing book. I almost forgot to take the before picture and had already started connecting the lines but you get the idea. I’m also including mom’s latest drawing in the book, even though we don’t have the before picture.

Since the beginning of the month, I’ve also been creating and writing in a journal, as previously stated but I’m choosing to keep that private.

As always, thanks for visiting!


Now that I’m back at work full time, I realize that daily blogging during the week is too much for me. So I think I’ll post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from now on. With maybe an occasional weekend post.

Today is day 244 of my daily art project for 2016. Which means there’s only 1/3 of the year left! Also, I decided to keep my “free-for-all” art theme for September because I will also be participating in a free 30 day journaling challenge but I probably won’t share that on here.

Anyway, here are yesterday and today’s art: a white mandala and a shoe print zentangle.

Thanks for visiting!

Weekend update

In case any of you were wondering, I didn’t post on Friday because I had a long day of cleaning at work and an evening of dancing which didn’t leave much time for in depth creating and blogging. In fact, my daily art was a quick sketch on a previously painted journal page. When I looked at the page, I immediately saw the elephant shape and the lady bust so I decided to sketch Marie-Elephantoinette! See what I did there?!?


I will paint her at a later date. And over the weekend, I kept things simple again with some doodling on the painted branch for Saturday and a mandala on Sunday.

Finally, today, I altered my third and last clipboard. Once again, I only used acrylic paints (Americana and Distress) and stencils (Penny Black, The Crafter’s Workshop, and unknown for the fairies). And I decided that fairies were a great addition to go with the butterflies and birds.


I’ll show you when all three clipboards will be on the wall.

Thanks for visiting!

Weekend update

Another busy weekend has come and gone. Once again, I kept my daily art simple with a mandala and a zentangle. I rarely draw specific shapes when doing my zentangles but this time, for some reason, I started drawing a cup. And I really like how it turned out.

For today, I went for another set of postcards. But this time, I played with watercolors. I painted rather quickly, without thinking too much and I like most of what I did. My favorite is the green “snowflakes” which were supposed to be mandalas. My brush was too big for any detail work so I left it as is. To draw on top of the other postcards, I used my Fude Ball 1.5 pen.

Weekend update

I decided to draw more mandalas and zentangles over the weekend. It’s easy for me to do those things especially since I usually spend at least part of the weekend with my parents. So here are this weekend’s creations:

For today, I again chose something easy as I was spending the day with my mother. She had previously painted acrylic on some branches and I started doodling on the biggest one with gel pens. It’s an ongoing project so today I’m only showing two sections. I couldn’t do more because the light was quickly fading and I prefer to keep the branch outside. I’ll show more photos as it progresses.

Do you like to doodle? If so, do you have a preferred style or surface to use?

Thanks for visiting!
