Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Digital Drawing!


The sun is shining here in Somerset, but it's feeling a bit chilly.  This week I thought I'd share with you a couple of things.

I've always been interested in art (my dad's an artist) and have always been able to pick up a pencil when in the right frame of mind and create.  Recently, as my CD collection for crafting has grown, and having watched such talented crafter's, like Nikky Hall etc, on tv, I decided to get myself a graphic's tablet. I want to have a go at designing for myself (and maybe one day for you all!).  Not having a vast amount of money to spend and not being sure if I'd get on with said tool, I opted for a cheap version. But have to say the £25 Trust version I've bought is fab, easy to use and does the job for now. So here's my first attempt at drawing digitally.
Don't ask why I drew this character or why I drew him with such big spiky hair, he just happened! I really enjoyed messing about with the technology & software. Discovering how to do everything for the first time was great fun, spent the evening oohhhing and aaahhing, and clapping hands as I worked it out!

Let me know what you think of my character/drawing, am interested to see what people make of him!

I will be working on more drawings that's for sure, and I have an idea for a potential CD/stamps! Watch this space.

Right I also want to share with you two cards that I was asked to make by a family friend.

First is a feminine Mum card,

The second is a golfing card.

Hope you all have a fab day and a lovely weekend. Will be back at the beginning of the week to share my next DT card.

Take care and thanks for popping by.
