Snowflake heArts Doodle Pattern

Snowflake heArts Doodle Pattern

This started out as a page of snowflakes I doodled one Saturday morning I spent with some creative friends.  Originally I used ink and colored pencil but with the magic of  Photoshop I could cut out each individual snowflake and remix it.  I also made a Photoshop brush with one of the snowflakes that I used in the background.

Snowflakes are my favorite design element of winter.  I found some gorgeous snowflake cookies (with recipe) to add to my Sugar Cookie Recipes Squidoo lens.

I’m finally done with massage school, have passed my national certification exam, and have the license application in the mail.  So now I can get back to my heArts!  I had no idea all of that would end up tapping the creativity right out of me.   Well, that and my muse disappearing.  But…upward and onward!

Yesterday I enjoyed playing with my colored pencils so much I decided to do a simple heart ACEO. (ACEO stands for “Artist Card Editions & Originals”.) I’ve been doing a lot of research in anticipation of creating a full website and I keep running into “tattoo designs”. It wasn’t my intent when I started, but by the time I finished it I thought this would make a cool tattoo.

I’m been holed up in my house because of the winter weather the last few days. Watching hour after hour of the Travel Channel has been my way of coping. Today I wrapped my electric blanket around me, tuned into Samantha Brown who was somewhere in the rain forests of South America, and started drawing with colored pencils.

I’ve caught the inchie bug! I was sucked into a 1 x 1 (or “inchie”) art swap group at the CoachCreativeSpace site after much kicking and screaming. I have become much too dependent on Photoshop!

This is one of my first inchies using Inktense colored pencils on canvasette. Check out the way the texture of the canvas shows up. I think it’s cool. Keep in mind this is 1 x 1 inch square in real life.

As often happens, I became more interested in researching inchies than actually make one at first. So interested that I made a lens (webpage) about Inchies on Squidoo.
