Thumbkins GIVEAWAY!

Thumbkins are little creatures that kid's can create, and today I am going to give away a copy. Just watch this video and enter:  

It is super-easy--kids dip their fingers into paint, press it onto a page in the book, and VOILA! They have a Thumbkin! They can create snails, aliens, butterflies, jellyfish, flowers, or anything else they can think of--and I will help with my CREATE-ALONG You Tube videos. 

The book is filled with 28 perfect scenes for kids of all ages to fill with any kind of critter they can dream up. They can use paint, crayons, pencils, or markers. Kids of all ages will have fun.

The videos can be found on YouTube at Doodle Bug Art. Each page will have a Create-Along video, but you can start with the first three today.

Thumbkins is available HERE at a special but temporary introductory price, so buy now before the price goes up.

GIVEAWAY for Good Vibes Only Notebooks!

 So many people like to journal these days. Some write morning pages when they wake up. Many write in a prayer journal. 

I am one of those people!

Coming Soon!

I love notebooks and pens, but never had any luck finding the perfect one. And IF I happen to find the perfect book, it was either so thick that it was hard to write in or take with, or so expensive I did not think it was worth it...so I designed my own!

Each notebook has between 90 and 120 pages, just enough to so you can take the notebook with you without weighing down your purse, bag, or backpack. And the covers, are cute, sassy, and smart, just like you!

SO--I am having a GIVEAWAY for THREE notebooks! All you have to do is go to my new Facebook page and LIKE or FOLLOW page. Leave me a note below so I can enter you in the giveaway and you can tell me which notebook is YOUR fave! 

CLICK here for Good Vibes Only GIVEAWAY on Facebook.

Life is too short for boring notebooks! Enter now for your chance to win one of my new notebooks. The covers and smart and sassy...just like YOU!

All notebooks available HERE.

Drawing for Fun with Black, White, Brown and Grey Conte Pastels on Tan Paper

Using pastel pencils is very different from colored pencils.

Pastels are much softer, can cover an area much faster, and are super dusty. They do not hold a point as long as a colored pencil, and need to be sharpened often. They can create very painterly looks with a more controlled feel.

In the video below I am coloring this printed ink image of a hummingbird using only four colors. Please feel free to download and work along with me if you like. Enjoy!
