I love to draw, and feel blessed that I can awaken each morning and greet the day with a pen in my hand. I usually put pen to paper before I’m fully awake. Some days I start by lettering a prayer of gratitude; others I Dangle or draw abstract doodles. Occasionally (since I am NOT a morning person) I get more ambitious, and am inspired to draw flowers, leaves, trees and nature scenes. The following images are variations of a design which began as one of my morning doodles.
In addition to drawing the trees, I had a lot of fun experimenting with different types of embellishments, and different backgrounds treatments. All of the pieces are hand-drawn and/or painted, but some of the composition was done in PhotoShop.
I added birds & butterflies to the design above.
And here is a version that feature Zenspirations Dangles on the right tree trunk.
Last but not least is a line-art version of the design that Impression Obsession is going to introduce as a rubber stamp in January. I call it the ‘Dangle Trees’, and I would love to know what you would create if you had this rubber stamp. So leave me a comment with your idea, and who knows — I may surprise you with a sample stamp!
