Day 13 of Inktober and 31 Products Challenge #zebrapen #hahnemühle

 A lot has happened since I posted last. My computer died. Bought a new computer.  Book publisher died. Looking for a new book publisher. Blog commenting isn’t my fault. Blogger is messed up. Looking for a new blogging site.  Is that how you spell “site?” Back to art-ing. Above is day 13 of Inktober, 2018. The tangle pattern was… Continue Reading

Days 10, 11 and 12 of Inktober #hahnemühle #zebrapenusa


I am having major computer issues, among other issues, hahaha! but we are slowly working our way back around to the light. I hope. Above you see a Hahnemühle Tile that has been watercolored with Tombow brush pens. I used a Zensations Technical Pen from Zebra Pens for the tangling. Plain graphite for shading and a… Continue Reading

Days 8 and 9 of Inktober #hahnemühle #zebrapen

I am falling behind on Inktober.  Blog issues, book issues, computer issues,  new computer issues. It’s been a messed up last 4 days! This tile was for October 9th, which was yesterday. Again I used the Hahnemühle Tiles for both these days. The color on this one came from Zebra Pens‘ beautiful mildliners.  I used… Continue Reading

Days 6 and 7 of Inktober #hahnemühle #zebrapen

 Really happy with the way this tile turned out! I made the background color with  Ranger Distress Ink pads, just kind of scrubbed them around on the paper. That would be a Tile from Hahnemühle. (And they are working out great for this Inktober!) The patterns I tangled are O-cee and Onamato. Just the… Continue Reading

Day 4 Inktober #hahnemühle #zebrapenus

Day 4 of Inktober brings me back to another Hahnemühle Tile and my Ranger Distress Ink pads. That background color is the distress ink. I used Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to shade and add the green. Apparently you can’t see all that green bleedover when the tile is actually its  normal size of 3.5″ and… Continue Reading

Day 3 Inktober is Happening Now #hahnemühle #zebrapenus

 Day 3 of Inktober and I’m still going strong.  Hahahahaha! The art for day 3 was done on a Tile from Hahnemühle. I used distress oxide ink pads from Ranger and scraped on color, as well as rubbed  the tile in a watered down version on  a craft mat. The tangle for the day… Continue Reading

Day Two of Inktober #hahnemühle #zebrapenus

 Day two of Inktober, 2018,  is a done deal. I have tried to photograph this piece of art several times, I even scanned it and it still looks out of focus to me. Strange. Anyway, the tangle pattern we are focusing on  today comes from Barbara Steyer and it’s  called Baecube. Those cubes are offset and… Continue Reading

Retro Flowers on Hahnemühle Cappuccino #hahnemühle


This is the original project I built on a page in the Hahnemühle Grey Book. Just as the name implies – the pages are grey in color. With a weight of 55 lbs., I didn’t know  what to expect when adding wet media but this paper worked like a champ! The book wrap says the paper has a non-absorbing… Continue Reading
