New Vintage Valentine

I know, I know... It's late.  I love vintage and traditional stuff, so I thought I'd try my hand at one of my own.  I'm still working on this, but I'm pretty happy with it.  I'm not sure I like the purple background, yellow might look nice.

Lacy Valentine

In addition to illustration and painting flowers for brides,  I teach the 6D Husqvarna Viking Embroidery Software at Tanner's Sewing and Vacuum.   This software allows you to create "digitize" embroideries and then sew them out on home sewing and embroidery machines, like the Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Royal.

This is my next project, a lacy heart embroidery.  Stay tuned to see the final results in the next few weeks.

Chiar, Tutu, and a Book!

Happy Halloween!

Last year I made a Halloween card for my son featuring our cat.  
Now he wants one every year!  My Witchy Pleasure , of course!
From sketchbook to Photoshop.  In Photoshop I added the boarder, cleaned up the moon, and added some contrast so that the bottom would be darker than the top.

Designing Ink Marks

Practicing and sketching in ink this last weekend.  There are so many ways to ink, that it takes a bit of planning to decide what kind of marks you want to make on a final. Fun Fun out of the sun! : )
