I must say that learning the ins and outs of any new digital device is always an adventure! Not all my apps and links want to play nice yet, and some passwords are refusing to let me make changes, but overall I think I am going to really like creating art on my new iPadPro. Here are a few of my first adventures into digital lettering.
"Brushing up" on my long-neglected calligraphy skills has been great fun since I discovered @randomolive, thanks to a class with April Bowles-Owen on Creative Live last October. Before then, I knew nothing about brush lettering, although I had been doing pen and ink calligraphy off and on since high school art class. The April challenge of 30 baseball related words really caught my interest since my grandson is now playing tee ball!
The countdown to summer has begun in my head, even though there are still five very busy weeks left in the school year for me. I recently acquired a gorgeous selection of stones from Dakota Stones and am spending as much time as possible building my Sand and Surf summer collection for my Etsy shop. Right now, I have listings for stretch stacking bracelets, but I have plans to add earrings and other bracelet styles in the coming weeks. Check back often and follow me on Instagram to get all the latest updates!
I am a woman with many hats...artist, retired art teacher, blogger, wife, mother, grandmother. In short, one very busy lady!
