hi……

“h” is for; hello, honey, helicopter, hors d'oeuvres , hills, and heeps-o-fun!!!

I’ve finally decided to take on the “lower-case” alphabet doodle challenge…. which I gave myself months ago. My uppercase letters were in real need of a lowercase counterpart. I’ve found with the little break from doodling in this form that my doodles have changed a bit. It’s just interesting to see that I’m not as afraid of using a lot of color to fill in the white space. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge white space advocate. But in the case of these letters, since they are drawn on white moleskine paper, they need contrast and color. And lots of it!!

One of these days I’m gonna do a series of these in watercolor pencils. I love the way the watercolor pencils give depth and fluidity to the piece. The problem with the watercolor pencils for me now is, I haven’t decided if i could do this during my break at my DAY JOB. I think though, if it’s important to me….I’ll find a way.

Thanks for stopping by….and keep on doing your thing!!

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
