In The Process: New Years Eve Custom Invitation
CeindyDoodles-NewYearsEve Soiree

Hey guys and gals! As a designer, I love seeing the behind-the-scene processes of other designers. So, I thought I would give you a glimpse of what it’s like to work with me on a custom invitation.

September 2016 Update
Life Update

It’s crazy that an entire month has passed! Things I have learned this month include: I really stink at self-control. I try to do too much. I should enjoy being bored once in awhile. So of course, my ABC did not get done. My sketching for the shop, did not get done. Good goly Ceindy […]

I had a very fun month of using the Pentel Aquash waterbrush. I used it along with the Artist’s Loft brand watercolors that can be found at Michael’s for approximately $5.00. It was a lot of fun, but I still needed to get used to the flexibility and almost unpredictability of the brush.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since the new year. As the end of the first month arrives, I wanted to show my first alphabet of the 12 months, 12 tools, 12 ABCs. I’ve also started using #12abcs to keep these together. ^_^
