July Kit with Illustrated Faith


Happy Sunday friends!

I hope you're having a relaxing and wonderful weekend. I realized this morning I haven't shared my new kit with Illustrated Faith over here on the blog yet!

I chose a lovely verse for this kit from Song of Solomon...



And I used a mix of hand painted watercolor and digital drawing with this kit - a first for me! It was a challenge and one that I'm so glad I didn't give up on, because I think this mix really gives it depth. 




Here is an example of how the kit was used in a journaling bible...so lovely!


And here are a few resources to help you use the kit:


Hope you have a fabulous day!

New Pattern Collection


Happy Tuesday friends!

How is your week going so far? I've had Mondays off all summer (vacation days to be home with my boys = heaven!) so today feels like my Monday. These four day work weeks are majorly spoiling me! 

That extra day off has been giving me more art creating time, and I have been going nuts creating lots of new patterns. I wanted to share a new collection with you today! 

I'm calling this one Citrus Floral...





I could see these patterns on everything from a cute journal to fabric for pillows or a sweet summer dress. Think I need to do some product mock-ups!

Digital Floral Illustration

Hello friends!

I wanted to share some digital floral illustrations I've been working on. I've drawn all of these on my iPad Pro using the Procreate app. Having fun with these and hope to translate them to a bigger project!

From top to bottom: dahlias, peonies, poppies & roses...




Hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend!

Watercolor + Digital Illustration


Hello friends!


I wanted to share a fun experiment I've been playing around with this past week. I've been obsessed with watercolor painting, and came up with some lovely swatches of color using some new watercolor inks I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

Then I merged my watercolor swatches with digital illustration on my iPad with the Procreate app (LOVE this app for digital drawing).

I scanned my watercolor swatches and imported them into Procreate, and had LOTS of fun with some nature shapes...
I really love how the variations of color show through, and having the look of watercolor, but the control of drawing the motifs. The best of both worlds!

I'm thinking of creating a Skillshare class to teach this technique. It is SUPER fun, and the process is a bit like magic.

June Kit with Illustrated Faith


Happy Tuesday friends!

I'm so happy to share with you that my third kit with Illustrated Faith is now up in the Print & Pray shop! 



This kit is basically my love letter to God's creation. It is inspired by Isaiah 40:22...


This kit is full of all things summer and spilling over with awe for the magical nature that surrounds us.




And if you don't have fireflies where you live, I've included two super cute ones for you!

You can grab the kit here!

New Patterns + A Sale!


Happy Thursday friends!

I have a few new patterns to share with you today, and a great sale in my Society6 shop!

My Pattern Camp group has weekly challenges and the last two have been really fun and gotten me out of my comfortable box of typical motifs. The first was to create artwork inspired by Mexican folk art and this is what I came up with after some Pinterest searching for inspiration...



And this week's challenge is terrariums which were SUPER fun to draw...




Of course I'm a bit obsessed with these in real life too. Faux succulent lovers unite!

And speaking of patterns, all home decor products in my Society6 shop are 25% off and free shipping today! 

Woohoo!!


Use THIS LINK to grab the sale on pillows and lots of other goodies!

Hope you're having a fantastic Thursday!
