My First Drawing Attempts

Artist, me??? Over the last several years I have taken time to explore and develop my creative interests. First it was the greeting cards, scrapbooking, coloring books, painting, floral design and even some cooking. This Summer I started an art journal. I liked it so much that I wanted to improve my drawing so I would have more skill in expressing myself graphically. So I made my first real attempts to learn to draw.

I never was interested in or good at drawing. I even remember in elementary school when we had to watch a video and draw what the man was drawing. I was so frustrated and couldn't get it. So you can image my surprise when all of a sudden, I wanted to draw.

My husband is a great artist and I asked if I could see some of his skill books.  I picked one of the lady images to practice on and had fun trying.  The book was good because it gave a step by step guide to teach me how to do it. Please forgive her stern look but she is from a comic super-hero art book! LOL!

My very first drawing of the super-hero lady!

The nose was the hardest to do but they are getting better.

I loved trying different hair styles & make-up.

Adding earring was fun too.

Loved trying this short hair style.

Just love this red hair!

Isn't it amazing how fast I am progressing???? I just started all this this month and have never done anything like this before!!!!  Also, this has been such great medicine to relieve stress. When I am drawing I feel so peaceful and calm. Just love this!

After all these faces, I wanted to try this ocean view. Awwww, this scene looks so relaxing.

Thanks for taking a look and have a super weekend!

New K Simone Design Video

This Summer I discovered I had a program on my computer called Movie Maker. I started to play around with it and created two videos of some of my K. Simone Design cards. I really enjoyed discovering all the various functions.

This video features some of what I call my "Single Fold Cards".  These are my cardstock folded card with paper enclosure. For more information on these cards, see the blog page on the right. Here is the link. Single Fold Cards

The video just gives you an idea of the type of cards we can create for your special occasions and love ones.

Take a look and enjoy!
