The Ton – Simple Mermaid Vibes

The Ton – Simple Mermaid Vibes

Who’s hot? I mean really. Not hot sexy, but hot drippy sweating not even glimmering kind of hot. ME, AGH! We are, hopefully, nearing the end of waaaaay too many days over 100* here in Central California. I am craving quiet, cool and simplicity. I am getting out of this valley and headed to the beach here before long and all of this has me dreaming of cool, waves, and mermaids!

I’m sharing just that over at The Ton Stamps today. Head on over to The Ton Stamps blog, The Season here, for more details!

 

Thank you so much for visiting today!

D2BA Butterfly Inspiration

D2BA Butterfly Inspiration

Hi there, my friends! Today is Monday and I’m sharing over at the Dare 2B Artzy blog about creating depth and dimension with colored pencils and black. Yep, black. Don’t be afraid to turn to the dark side. Just like white space, black is an important color to create deep dark depth and contrast.

I’ve also created a video tutorial so you can have a front seat guide to creating with black! You can watch from this blog below, from D2BA or on YouTube. I have linked up all the products here, there and everywhere for your convenience, as well. Thanks so much for your support. We’ll see you soon!

PS: There is a Giveaway over in the video tutorial. (Happy Hunting!)
