Travel sketching is a win/win/win.

1.Sketching while on vacation slows you down and forces you to observe.

2.When you sketch on vacation you have nothing to loose and practice skills to  gain.

3. Sketching on vacation gives you a visual keepsake to remember your vacation by.

My mango pineapple mojito was so yummy that i forgot to make a sketch of it!(so glad i snapped a pic 😉

I created some cards with black and white line drawings. After coffee, quiche, cake, cookies, candy, etc.. i asked if anyone would like to color in some cards. I heard “you know i can’t draw”& “you know i am not that creative” but when i laid out some sharp crayons and sharpies I got a few takers:) I am so proud of all their creations, turns out we can ALL draw and All be creative we just need about 20 minutes:)

Holidays have always been a good excuse for me to get creative!  When it comes to Valentines day it’s all about “RED” and red is one of my favorite colors so i start the holiday celebrations early:)Here is a peek into my month of Valentine celebrations so far…..
