I've always loved the saying "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine," so I thought it was time to create a piece of wall art. I bought a package of water soluble crayons just like these, and went to town!

Once I drew/painted (what is it called when you us...

I couldn't decide what type of artwork I wanted to create this week, so I just sat down with a brush, paper, and a squirt of black paint and a squirt of white (that sounds weird and a little gross). I started painting shapes that I love...flowers, birds, teacups, teapo...

I saw this rug on Pinterest (well, a similar one, as I modified it while painting). I fell in love with it. Of course it is from Anthro. I just can't get enough of Bohemian decor! 

This is 98% gouache painting. The darker purple diamonds are glued tissue paper, and...

Bugs. Beetles. Caterpillars. They seemed to be an appropriate design this week given that I had a little flu bug. 

For these I started out by gluing various colors of tissue paper into my sketchbook. I then painted on top of the paper, and painted heads for the bugs. It...

Let's make Valentine's Day cards easy this year, my friends. I made this EASY printable because I'm always assembling these types of things the night before. In case you are panicking the night before the party, I've got you covered. This will take 10 minutes, tops. If...

This week's theme: Bathroom Vanity. Lots of color was created using cut pieces of tissue paper, paint, oil pastels, and patterned paper. I like these altogether as one piece of art, but I also think each one individually would be cute framed and hung in a bathroom. 

Tha...

It was the Chinese New Year on January 28th and this year is the Year of the Rooster. 

For these I used a variety of mediums...gouache paint, washi tape, watercolor paints, Micron pens, digital patterns, and my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. There is nothing I love mor...

As a thank you for following along in my "52 Weeks of Illustrations" journey, I created these watercolor snowflakes for you! These are watercolor hand-painted snowflakes (with color, because it is me, duh!) I used them in my Week 3 of 52 "Winter with a Touch of Anthrop...

This week's theme was planted in my head while I was driving down the street one day coming home from taking the kids to school. There was a little bit of snow on the ground and a few snowmen were peeking up at me. The hats and scarves people put on their snowmen are t...

Apparently I was living in a cave and only recently started watching Fixer Upper with Chip and Jo Gaines. I adore her style...the natural elements and the muted, organic materials. However, I need just a bit more color in my home life. Therefore, this is Jo's style and...
