Coloring With Copics


I bet you did not know that I am a Certified Copic Instructor! Yep! It is true. Back in 2013 I went through the training and was certified to teach the art of the Copic. There is much I’ve learned and I’d like share some of that with you today. Perhaps you remember this page… Continue Reading

The 100 Day Project, Days 1 -3


The 100 Day Project is underway! In case you haven’t heard about the project, it is a global art event that happens each year starting in April. The thought is to commit to doing something creative for 100 days in a row – thus creating a new habit for yourself. In my Facebook group Tangle… Continue Reading

Ringz, a Fun Tangle!


I first introduced this tangle three years ago. And what a fun little tangle it is! Easy to draw, fun to make, versatile and useful as a feature tangle, a border, filler, it could even be used as a string. Ringz!

Many people still color and even more people still have these books sitting on their… Continue Reading

Stencil Art to Tangle


Like I mentioned yesterday, this afternoon Mark is having an MRI to hopefully determine why he is having trouble walking. I really can’t make art today, so I’m pulling out a post from the past. I promise it is still relevant. <3 (And I’ll add some new comments, too.)  Show of hands: how many of us have stencils… Continue Reading

Fountain Pen Loosey Gooseys


That title may make absolutely no sense at all. Yet it makes perfect sense to me. Because – yes, my brain works that way. Hahahahaha! You may have seen me mention the absurd amount of snow we’ve gotten this winter in Maine. Last count I had was around 160 inches, the yearly average is 90… Continue Reading

Block Party!
