Hello there! I thought I’d start out the week with a little pep talk while coloring – I tried something different with this stamp set, and thought talking through my process might be helpful or encouraging to you!

This stamp set by Waffle Flower called Holly Bird got me right away because of the shape (love me some hexagons!)….and as the art developed it changed along the way. Let’s talk through some ways to think about your art – and not give up halfway through!
I colored the stamp twice – the first time was an “expected” coloration – a red bird, green background, traditional colors and simple kind of bird. But you know me….expected isn’t what gets me excited. I love to learn something, and learning means pushing the boundaries! So I made my second bird a realistic one following a little bird photo I found.
The simpler version will be on social media later on today, so you’ll be able to check it out on my IGTV page.
Some of you might be ready to spend some time on your Christmas cards – this free class could help you along!
