Warmest Wishes Snowmen Holiday Collection


From the beginning stages of my watercolor elements painting I posted last week to my Instagram feed, to the clean up of the files, and final pattern creation, this "warmest wishes snowman" holiday collection was a blast to make!

It was two weeks in the making because I do work a full time work week like the majority of my blog readers. I had the watercolor elements finished last Sunday, but I didn't take the time to scan and adjust until today. I am happy to announce this is now available as multiple card templates, gift wrapping, sticker sets, and more. Just click on my store link to see all of the wonder whimsical-ness of this set.

Here's a hint. Keep checking back to zazzle for their money saving discounts. The next three days you can save up to 40% off of invitations and other options. Some of the newest set below are part of this sale. Get a jump start on your totally unique holiday greeting cards now!

My creative process 99 percent of the time starts out with a sketch. If I love the idea, I will follow up with inking the artwork and then scanning it onto my laptop. Clean up of the lineart is the next step in the process, followed by coloring in Photoshop and finally vectoring. After an hour or so, I can start making products and patterns for various items. The photo posted above shows the inked art and not the rougher sketches. As you can see, there are a few ne items now available for Halloween in my Zazzle shop. Click the link to see and purchase if they tickle your fancy.

I'm off to start creating more fun items!

Cat and Kitten Baby Shower Invitations and More

With as much work as there actually is in trying to get together a high quality Zazzle shop, I don't really have the time I thought I would to try and keep up with this blog. I had in mind that I would be able to post weekly! haha Boy was I wrong.
So here is a quick update of some of the newest designs available this month.

First up is a Mama kitty and her kittens. I used sweet pastel colors with a digital watercolor texture overlay. Little heart and flower doodles are also included into the design. I tried to keep this sweet and simple with a light blue and white stripped background.

The text is adjustable and there are several items to choose from that with the design such as icing rounds, paper plates, thank you stickers, and wrapping paper. Perfect for the cat loving expecting mother to be.



Next, I created a cute little bunny rabbit floating in a hot air balloon. Random floral elements help to round out the design. The tag line is "Let's Fly Away" Great for toddler birthday parties. Sweet hot air balloon decorations, pastel colors, and stuffed rabbit toys would be perfect as an easy way to decorate for the party. Many items are available in the shop. Cards, stickers, wrapping paper, clock, and baby gifts.




Finally, I created another unicorn image for various products. Sweet back to school products and birthday invitations can be found in the shop.




Until the next post. Thanks for stopping by and I will keep on creating. : )

Jungle, Mermaid, and Fairy Party Theme Items

My doodling for the past few weeks has produced a few new items available in the shop.
We now offer magical mermaids, some cute sloth items, and a few jungle theme custom birthday invitations.
Each week, I find something new to strike my fancy. Instead of say what I plan to do, I'm just going to go with the flow. I'm not certain about other artist out there, but when I have an urge to paint something I had better get it out or I will be moving onto the next idea.
As always, I start off with a view doodles. Here are a couple of photos of the before process.
