2011 Diary Project

Found out about this awesome project thanks to Andrea at EraserQueenStudios for posting this on her blog.   http://eraserqueenstudios.blogspot.com/     



I’ve reserved September 18, 2001 (my birthday). I love trees! Gotta have trees on my birthday right?! *wide grin*

Just finished my page. The one on the left is a pen & ink and the one on the right is after I scanned it and took it into InDesign and added all the pertinent info. The size of the image on the page is 3×8 inches. The finished diary will have a small margin around it.



Trying a New Technique: Batik Watercolors!

I am really loving this new technique of Batik Watercolors. The colors really pop! I was inspired by the work of Margaret Storer-Roche (her website here: http://waterblossoms.blogspot.com/) Spent the 4th of July playing with masking fluid and Shin Han Watercolors (thanks Mom for the paints!!!). Three of them have already gone to new homes. What do you think of my first set of cards?

My Blog Got A New Look!

I love the new look of my blog. If you like it too don’t hesitate to say so!

Exciting NEWS!!!!

I am now the Director of Design for Saddle Talk News!

My dream when I graduated with my degree in Graphic Design was to work on a magazine. The reality of it though is there are thousands upon thousands of Graphic Designers/Artists and only a few hundred magazines to work on.

I have been blessed that the opportunity to work on a magazine has come my way. I am now the Co-Owner and Director of Design of a new horse magazine for West Tennessee & Kentucky called “Saddle Talk News!” This publication is offered free to our following and as a result may be read in its entirety by download at the following site –  http://saddletalknews.com/
