A little look into my sketchbook today to see a few recent florals that I’ve been working on.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
A little practice trying to compose a pleasing floral design.
Some elements are simple while others are more detailed.
In this sketch, I tried to add more variation in the size and shape of the flowers and leaves.
Tucking elements behind one another was like putting together a puzzle. Including a few peekaboo flowers here and there was really good practice. 🌸
I started this sketch building from the center with flowers and working my way out. Then I filled in the white space with vines and leaves to balance things out. I always like having a few vines at the top waving hello.
I really like this one, it makes me happy. 💚
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.
I love the combination of a simple ink sketch with soft colors.

Sketched using a black Micron pen, size .03
I bought a set of black Micron pens with a wonderful travel case. It had room for additional pens and so… I filled it up. 🙂 I also managed to fit my mechanical pencil in the case as well.
I love having this little case next to me whenever I am sketching, everything I need is visible and right on hand. ❤ I’ve mentioned these pens in other posts and thought you might like to see what I’ve been using.
I like to think that I am painting myself happy. I hope you enjoy seeing my happy art and it inspires you create and do something you love.
Thank you for stopping by and following along. ❤ Until next time, share a smile and sprinkle kindness everywhere.
I love what I was able to create but the best part was that I felt very calm and relaxed while painting. Looking back, the hardest thing for me was getting a nice picture to post using my phone. For some reason I have a difficult time getting a quality photo of anything purple.

A floral doodle and my inkspiration photo for you today.
This post is rather quiet. The doodle, well… not so much.
Happy Thursday! 🙂
While looking for something fun to sketch, this lovely red flower caught my eye. I snapped the photo below with my phone while visiting Leu Gardens this spring. A nice flower to sketch with some interesting shapes.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love.
