*stencil used for outline……gotta love those stencils!!
I’m so happy that Walgreens has their little “gift” section on their photo site. I just bought a friend a Christmas present and thought I could use a little notepad as well. I had drawn this Ladybug for my friend who is a total LADYBUG-FANATIC. Once the page was finished I didn’t know what to do with it. It was too small to frame because it was in my 5x8 moleskine. Then I remembered Walgreens gift section…. So, off I went to scan it, and upload the image to Walgreens. Then, I patiently waited for a sale…..they are like KOHLS in that they always have a sale. Plus, I’m finding it fun to never buy anything at Full-price….. if I can help it.
If I wanted to, I could have included (at no extra charge) her name, or “From the Desk of”, or a quote, pretty much anything that I wanted. But I opted for simple.
And this one is mine. My first attempt at drawing from a picture using watercolor pencils. This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my Dad.
I get such a kick out of seeing my work on items…. usable, everyday items! I am such a geek! Walgreens also made these for me a few months ago.
How about you? Do you put your artwork on everyday items? What sites have you found that you can recommend?
