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!!!

- 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!
