AAAHHH!! I'm super excited!! When I was brand new as a card maker, I had the pleasure of meeting a lot of awesome folks. They were all very sweet and encouraging. One of them was Guylou; she put me on my first design team and has never complained when I turn in my projects 10 minutes before the challenge is set to go live. (I work best when the pressure is on, but sometimes the time gets away from me...) Well, a long time ago she and I were talking about digi stamps, and I told her that I wanted to draw some stuff but hadn't. She told me way back then if I ever drew something, she'd put it in her store for me. Then time went on and on...
Until a couple of weeks ago when my darling friend Dana put up an awesome video of her transforming a cracker box into a mixed media dream! She had been posting her awesomely drawn images for a while, but watching that video made me want to do all sorts of arty things. I told her so, and she told me to go for it! But I still didn't do anything.
Until...I watched a video by Marti Wills daughter who is lovingly known as Pezza. During the video, Pezza said, "I'm just a beginner artist, but I'm a good artist." Well, dang! Out of the mouth of babes, right?! So, I reclaimed my sketchbook from the mounds of stuff in the basement, watched some videos, and started drawing! And I didn't hate what I drew! (That was a feat, because I don't tend to draw people and haven't drawn anything more than a doodle in a very long time!)
So now, on to today. I have THREE stamps at Guylou's Inimitability!
Now I need to learn how to draw a body!! :D
