Hello Friends
I have been busy making stuff again. Seems I need to be more consistent on THIS blog.  I have been working on a writing project and that makes me disappear often.  Anyway, I do hope to get better at posting to this blog but truth be told, I often wonder if the world needs one more artsy fartsy blog-- then I decide, yes, yes it does.  I also realize how much information in this industry is inside my head.  I really do love paper and the art that accompany it.  Therefore I am going to do my best to post on a regular basis to thinking*through*design, it may be challenges or other stuff, but I need to be in communication with other artist, I really must.  With all that said, here is a card I made for a challenge over at  My Favorite Things Challenge Blog.
And this was one of my interpretations of this card.  I have another one on the table but it is marinating currently. I will share it at a later date.  Without further adieu...

Here is the original sketch - Let's see what you make with it.

Please feel free to leave comments, I love them and love to hear what you are thinking.  A thought on this design is the colors were chosen because of the analogous color scheme in my head, All that means is I chose the blue then crept around the color wheel until I reached yellow.  You will notice there are five different colors on this that I blended using water and the ZIG clean color markers.  
Thanks for stopping by!
