Block Letters….L and N


Continuing on with my Block Letter Series…’s the L all scanned and stark. 


Once scanned, I can digitally color the doodle in. 


Changing the color scheme is easy and a good way to test out color choices. But….


But,…I am so limited digitally.  The digital letter lacks lots of the smaller details that can be brought in manually.  Could be,…. I ‘m just not using the right tools.


With hand drawing, I can get into all those nooks and crannies…lay more detail down.  It’s more spontaneous. 


I’ll give it a thumbs up for vibrancy.  I find my digital doodling a bit inferior to my hand doodling. 


But it’s nice to have options Smile

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!
