Note Pads From Shuttefly

Another project from Shutterfly.
Notepads using my watercolors.

Shutterfly has many layouts you can use to create notepads. I inserted photos of my watercolors to their template to create a custom notepad. 

It's a 5"x7" notepad with nice paper and was beautifully printed.

Then I trimmed my art off of some of the papers and made them into bookmarks. Love these!

More from Shutterfly

I used one of my watercolors to print thank you cards using Shutterfly. It was very easy and cost effective and it's nice to have my own art printed on cards.

Coasters from Shutterfly

I love Shutterlfy. You can add artwork to all kinds of products and they are always offering free gifts - coasters, magnets, cards, ornaments and many other items. Try it out if you have your own art or photos. It's an easy way to create custom keepsakes and gifts.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers and more Flowers

I've been drawing lots of flowers on little paper circles with my new favorite Higgins India Ink marker along with ultra fine point and fine point sharpies. I always have paper and sharpies with me so I can draw when I have even a small amount of time. It's a good way to practice and keep creating.

Drawing with Higgins Black Magic

I used my new Higgins Black Magic Marker to draw lines and shapes. 

I added lines onto a painting.

I drew layered flowers

 and filled some in with paint.

The ink is dark and black and flows smoothly from the brush on the tip of the marker. 
Really fun to use.

Higgins Black Magic

Thank you to my brother Phil for this wonderful pen he gave me for Christmas. It’s a brush pen filled with India ink and makes the most beautiful black marks. I can’t wait to experiment with it.
