Happy Earth Day

This week's link party continues here thru Sunday!

Earth Day lettering and doodle ( no Mr. Chocolate, the earth is not intended to be an actual rendering!) . 

Had fun combining my doodle with Nursery images from The Hungry JPEG. 

Here's the plain version: 


I used Tombow Dual Tip brush pens to color the earth and the letters. If you buy these make sure you buy the blending pen! It's got a clear top and it is EVERYTHING!

Happy Monday! Be Fierce: Lettering and Graphics Practice


Happy Monday ( I'm trying to convince myself of that). Hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a good new week. 

Sharing some more lettering practice combined with digital graphics. 


I started with this quote I lettered last week. I go back and forth between coloring my lettering pieces and leaving them black and white so I can play with them once they're scanned in. 

If you are  not familiar with the site The Hungry JPEG, you should be! They have premium design resources ( combination of free and fee). I grabbed a Floral Megabundle one week when it was free ( it's fee now) which is what I used for this graphic. You definitely want to get on their email list or follow them so you'll know when they offer free bundles! 



Using PicMonkey, I changed the background and added a couple of digital elements from the Floral Bundle and done. 


I haven't yet decided what I'm using this graphic for ... most likely it will appear on a future card but one more for my "stash".

Lettering Practice: Work Humor


What happens when stress relief meets skill building combined with a naturally snarky personality? You letter snarky things to relax yourself at night after you've had crazy work days. 

I found this quote online and it perfectly sums up how I felt the other night after a few weeks of "fun" at work. 


For this one I did a combination of Faux-lligraphy and printing, and then scanned into my computer, edited, and added a digital background.

So now I think I need to print this, frame it and hang it above my desk! ( I work from home so it's me and the dog who'll see it).
