Coffee In Hand….


I’ve been working on some doodles for my doodle directory series.  Since the squares are small, it was a good size to try a stacking coffee cup illustration.

Grabbed my 8 x 8 square watercolor pad….and proceeded to draw the cups on a larger scale.


Since, I’m not very practiced in drawing inanimate objects…. I had to believe in myself!

Then I tried to bring in a paisley-bandana look to the cups.

For the art journal page, I thought I’d illustrate the journaling on a picture behind the cups.

Buffed up the letters…..


Then filled the lettering in…..Came across this saying a few years ago and I liked it!!!

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!
