glimpse in my sketchbook

 New blog and etsy headers and logos...
I have been playing around with making a logo, and finally settled on one. 

I have taken the extra piece of watercolor paper after cutting  my pages into squares to use for the mandalas I have been working on for the e-class, Falling into Mandalas, that I am creating. (hopefully it will start July 14th!), and I used those pieces to practice logos and headers. I have a new one on etsy that will show up April 1st, 

and you have already seen the new one here. here's some of my practices, and some girls from my sketchbook...
lots of bright color has been my plan lately....
and also!...
I have my own domain name now!
it's not complete yet but almost.
I am hoping it will make it easier for people to find me.

see you next time...
also: you have until midnight tonight to comment on my last friday's post to win a chance at the mandala book I am in called "Mandalas for the Inspired artist"
Good luck!
And thanks to those of you who have already ordered your own signed copy from me in person or on etsy!

  3. Have had to wait two days to get to this comment so as to give it the time and attention it deserved!

    HURRAH! So many new and exciting things blooming in your world! Congratulations Andrea! The Bee Queen book is GORGEOUS! we are going to order one but are waiting for it to arrive in your Etsy shop because we love receiving lovely things directly from the maker/writer/creator! SO excited for you and all that you have brought forth this year already! It's so inspiring to watch and to have this peek into thru your blog. :)

    The drawings are darling. The expression and soul that they contain, even as just early sketches, is so wonderful. The new banner is PERFECTION! we have been so excited about the new Etsy look and, though it is a bit of work, I think it makes the site even better and gives us all a chance to update and refine, or redefine, our look, our expression and our connection with customers and friends too. Can't wait to see it after the switch over on Etsy! Beautiful work, inspiring as always! TRULY!

  4. You have so much talent. Just looking at all your art gives me inspiration. Your sketch book truly shows how much you love your art.

  5. I love your illustrations and the sketch page. Great ink.

  6. I am so bummed that your mandala book doesn't ship to Australia!!! but I adore your header etc... your work amazes me

  7. I love looking into your sketch book . . . when I saw the title of this post I came running to take a look. Amazing as always:)

  8. Oh my goodness, so much eye candy here - you're doing wonderful, inspired work!

  9. I am very much enjoying your art this morning. You have a lovely style and they make me smile and touch my heart.
