Day Four in the Facebook 3/5 Art Challenge. These are some of the illustrations that I released in the past couple of years as rubber stamps or printable digital stamps. They are some of my very favorite designs. I colored them using Copics Markers. ~ Have a great Thursday!
Day Three. Today for my Facebook 3/5 Art Challenge i'm thinking about Springtime. The bunny and kitty illustrations are designs that I previously released as rubber stamps. For coloring I used Copics markers and for the top of the cupcake I used Liquid Applique medium. The flower sketch was created using watercolors (Sakura Koi Watercolor).
Hello friends! Here is my second posting for the Facebook 3/5 Art Challenge. Today I'm featuring my other style of illustration, using Copics markers and Prismacolor markers and softer outlines I'm really enjoying been part of this art challenge.
My artsy friend and illustrator Phyllis Harris Designs tagged me to participate in the Facebook 3/5 Art Challenge. Posting 3 art pieces for 5 days. Thanks Phyllis! Here is my first posting for the art challenge!
As you all know I L-O-V-E to sketch and draw throughout my day...So, I have been thinking that maybe you all would enjoy if I share with you little pictures from sketchbooks and things I'm working on...
Have a wonderful weekend! Love, Mabelle

It's so great to be back to my little studio after taking the Summer months off .
Summertime was wonderful. As a family we wanted to take these past months and spend extra time together, especially this year, as our kids entered new chapters in their lives. This past May our daughter graduated from high school and in August we saw our "baby" leave for college. I have to be honest, no matter how much you prepare for it and think you will be "cool" when the time comes...it's was hard to see our girl go to college. (Thank God she is not too far from us and we can still see her in the weekends :) And in August our son entered high school! Yes, people, high school! Unbelievable how fast time goes by! This boy is already 6 ft tall and loving his new school. This time off from blogging was truly a precious one and we really treasured it.
It's good to be back to working on my art, blogging and chatting with you all. Summer also was a time for me to also think about things that inspires me. Going back to the things I truly love. I dusted off my watercolors and gouache paints and worked on some cute sketches. It has been a time to go back to the basics and explore things that make my heart filled with joy.
I also updated my studio's main logo, it's still in the works but I'm really loving how is starting to look. I love that I can change the color of the letters too...What you think?
