Snowflake doodles

I had some fun with snowflakes this week.

Happy Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ˜Š

After playing and doodling some fun shapes, I added watercolor.

A little blue and purple combined with playful brushstrokes made some fun snowflake shapes.ย  ๐Ÿ’™โ„๏ธ

This page in my sketchbook just makes me smile.

Later I had some fun with my new Tombow markers. Oh, I just love these gorgeous colors!

I hope you find time to do more of what you love.

Wishing you all the best in 2020!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Holiday lights watercolor

I’ve been busy getting ready for the holidays. Yesterday we started decorating and hanging lights at my house. I love all of the beautiful lights everywhere this time of year.

Happy Sunday, friends!ย  โค๏ธ


Holiday lights watercolor and ink

Last week I painted some holiday lights. After the watercolor dried, I used a pen for some outlining and a little detail.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Doodle sketching fun this week

I took a break from my usual sketching to try something a little different… And oh what fun I had!

Happy Sunday, friends!ย  ๐Ÿ’š


ink sketching practice - faces and hats

I started out trying to sketch some simple faces. Then I thought it would be fun to add a hat. After that I just had to try a pretty dress….

This time I added a fun hat and left her hair down. Just a sweet doodle sketch that makes me happy.

Even though #Inktober2019 has come to end I plan on continuing to sketch in my free time. Sketching has been a little difficult for me lately as I have been dealing with some back pain but hopefully that will clear up soon.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Warming up for Inktober

I’ve been sketching a lot this week and thinking about #Inktober2019.ย  It’s hard to believe that October is right around the corner.

Happy Sunday, friends! ๐Ÿ’š


parrot ink sketch - minimal lines

I added to my micron pen stash and have been thinking about a theme for the month.

For this parrot above, I used minimal lines and really like how that worked out. That might be something to work on throughout the month.



playful floral ink sketching

I love to play with botanical doodle sketches. That will definitely be part of my work for the month as well. Having fun and seeing where the sketch takes me…


floral fun ink sketch

Florals alway work their way into my sketchbook and so I’m sure they will continue.

I like the idea of having a theme and think I will go with a combination of playful, floral, and animals. I’m excited see where the pen takes me this year. ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you decide to join in on the fun too. You can sketch whatever you like or find the 2019 list of prompts online. I can’t wait to see all of the amazing art that is posted by other artists.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
