MOVING TO NEW SITE


I just wanted to let everyone know that I am not missing, instead I have ventured into the wonderful world of my own website!

http://www.craftyartistkc.com is now live. Although it is not completed, I am slowly transitioning my posts over to the new site. Please please please go check it out and subscribe via email. I will be adding a lot more ways to follow me, but for now, please subscribe via email.

Very Big Sketchbook – Page 7


This is the seventh page in my Sketchbook. I wanted to do something very different than the other pages. This didn’t turn out like I had envisioned,  but at the same time it seems very fun. 

I learned by trial and error how to draw a new flower for future drawings. The flower at the bottom is the one I am referring to. I may color this in the future one day but right now I am gonna keep it black and white. 

What is your favorite part of this piece? Tell me in the comments below. 

Lunchtime Doodle – 4/21/2017


IMG_20170421_150720_839 As you guys are well aware, I have a mere 45 minutes to doodle or unplug as I like to call it. I have been taking my Artists Tiles to work to do just that. This piece is pretty small, It is on a 3×3 square. Although it is blown up pretty big here, I promise it was small.

I love these small tiles because of the time restraint I have, I can devote just enough time to trying out new patterns. Let me know what you think about this in the comments below!

Inspiration


I want to take a minute and express my extreme gratitude for this nugget below. Although this person may not know it, It has warmed my heart and put fire under my butt to actually do better! This simple gesture was just what I needed to see that I am making a difference. I am doing better. I am becoming known. All these things are so important as I am just starting out and I know that there are so many hills to climb.

But just as I was thankful for my first like, my first follower, my first comment, my first share, I am also thankful for my first inspiration. She has inspired me to do better.

We should all be mindful of this as we read through these blogs. A comment could mean the world to someone. A like could be the one thing that keeps that person from giving up. We have enough negativity and criticism in this world. Lets make a promise to each other, Speak kindly, Act honorably and sandwich criticism with positivity.
