DDD #290 - "ON MY DESK"

I was sitting in my work shop trying to come up with an idea for DDD #290--just sitting and twirling my pencil.

Diane's Digital Designs #290 - [these items were sitting there]. . ."On My Desk". And, because I had no other idea I drew what was right in front of me! Oh, well, some days are like that. . .

Again. Happy Thanksgiving, America!

Blessings to you,

Here in the United States and especially in Alabama, Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving unless you have pumpkin pie [and football--but that's a whole other digi]. Diane's Digital Designs #289 - "Pumpkins for Thanksgiving" will be wonderful for your Thanksgiving cards, place cards, or even a painting [nice Christmas gift, uh??? for someone on your list]. I'll even paint you an 8" x 10" watercolor with vibrant Derwent Inktense watercolors for only $35. Just e-mail me for details and I'll pay the first-class U.S.P.S. postage if you live here on the mainland U.S.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your whole family! Blessings to you and yours,

Everyone loves balloons! And Honey Bear is no exception! For me, Diane's Digital Designs #286 - "Let's Celebrate!" is for Honey Bear's birthday. However, you can use DDD #286 for any event you want. [Psst. Honey Bear and our Grand, Jordan, for both 10 years old.]

God's blessings to you,

Diane's Digital Designs #285 - "Frances: Fly Fisher" was requested by one of my new Blog Land friends, Jackie. When DDD #269 - "Freddy: Fly Fisher" was published in July 2015, Jackie sent me an e-mail requesting a teen-age girl fly fishing! Hope you like DDD #285 and can use it also. If you do, please e-mail me a picture of your project and I'll try to showcase it here on Diane's Designs.

Additionally you may have noticed [on my left side bar], I've had well over a half-million visitors since I first started my blog. I send you each a heart-felt "THANK YOU" for visiting and leaving your encouraging comments. You're the reason I'm here! Can hardly wait for the next half-million!

May God bless you,

While on YouTube a while back, I saw a video about Zenspirations. Well, I love doing Zentangles but they always had a 'limited' use for me. As I heard more about zenspirations [sometimes combining zentangles with pictures] I thought: "Now, this I can use!" Diane's Digital Designs #284 - "Sing and Be Happy" is my first attempt. It's bordered so all you have to do is print it out the size you need, color, and ah-la--Ready to Use! [I intentionally did not use a ruler for my border lines because I wanted it to have a 'handmade' feel]. Of course, after looking at the YouTube video link, if you want use a ruler--it's your art!]

Here is mine--I drew DDD #284 on watercolor paper and it's 4" x 5". All I need is a little water coloring, a cute background paper and it's ready for my card. Take a look:


Enjoy! May God bless you,
