Announcement   NOW ALL ITEMS ARE INSTANT DOWNLOAD
Photoshop Brushes are here! I'm making several of my designs into brushes, if there is something you want made into a brush that I have not done yet - please let me know.

Affordable clip art frames, borders, flowers, alphabets, paper packs and unique clip art are all original and hand drawn. New and original clip is always arriving, please check back often.

*****************************************************************************************************

All art work is done by me using a Wacom artists tablet. I'm usually creating something on a daily basis and posting new art work several times a week.

All my clip art is easily recolored using basic programs. But, if there is something that you like but the color is not just right and you can't recolor it yourself, contact me and we can work that out. Any items I have in black and white, I can easily recolor for you.

****************************************************************************************************

I always tell my kids that when you draw, it's supposed to look like it is hand drawn, not like a computer did it. I love that my frames and borders have that fresh drawn look. I very rarely use the "sharpening" tool - the Doodle look of my art, to me, is what draws me to it. My clip art has many side to it - whirly curly, fancy, calligraphy, straight lines, flowers, birds, wiggly, etc. I love to create.

About

Trust in your own creativity and be original.

I've been drawing and doodleing for years. As my young daughter has gotten older, she has wanted to draw, but was fustrated with it, then we found Zentangle and got a little obsessed with it. After a while she would always ask to make copies of what I did, so she could color it in.

A few years ago, friends started commenting on my doodles and craft items and someone had mentioned Etsy.
I did a lot research on Etsy to see what people were into. My daughter was into scrapbooking and I found out about digital scrapbooking.

My first clip art in my store was hand drawn flowers scanned into the computer, then colored using Publisher. A few things followed and it became a little fustrating. Then I found out about Artist Tablets, I researched artists tablets and knew what I wanted, luckily my birthday was coming up, I'm hard to buy for, so I let my husband know exactly what I wanted and he got me a big Wacom Bamboo tablet. I fell in love with my Wacom from the first time I used it.

The first couple of clip art items I put on were simular to what was already out there and needless to say, they did not sell. I then made 10 doodle frames, put them on and they sold - not quickly, but enough to let me know that they were getting all the hits and not the other items in my store.

I then, just let the creativity come out of me and made lots of frames and borders and played with them to see what I liked and what was appealing and what frames worked good together as a set. Once I stared to add more frames, they started to sell.

I continue to add more original clip art to my store, making sure I listen to the creative voice in my head that says to-- just draw it -- and then list it and learn from it.

    I've been doodleing and drawing and crafting all my life. Creating new original work is what keeps me sane. I'm also a girl scout leader, my girls have tried so many crafts, the moms too.
