Mid Summer Musings

Summer is now upon us and in fact is almost half over. Oh… this is the season that goes by way too fast. But we are enjoying every minute of it and I trust that you and your loved ones are as well.

I was looking over some of my previous posts and drawings and decided to play some more with this one I created with Inkscape back in April, when summer was still a dream. I love the hymn titled “It is Well With my Soul” , written by Horatio Spafford, and so I added the title to this peaceful scene.

Happy drawing!

Vinyl Wall Art…. I Hope…

photo of flowers against the ocean

I recently took this picture while traveling along the Pacific coast. I like the color of the water and the way the dried flowers are silhouetted against it. I love stuff like that! Anyway, it inspired me to try something I’ve been wanting to do for a while but haven’t gotten around to.

Today I’m designing some wall art by tracing the flowers in the picture using the Inkscape pen tool.  I’ll have to modify it some because the flowers are too dainty for cutting. I’m not sure how thin I can cut the vinyl with my Craft Robo without it tearing or stretching when I apply it to the wall. I’ve posted this question on the Inscape Cutting Design forum. I’ll bet someone there will be able to give me some tips as I go along with the project.

I can’t wait to see how this turns out!

Oh… by the way… for those of you that have personal cutting machines, La.La.Studio has some really nice free downloads right now.  You might want to take a look.

Happy drawing!
