The Shop: Some Ideas Never Fly

I want to share with you a little bit of what is involved in making a product once the idea is formed in my head. Some ideas never get off the ground, while others are altered part way through the process, while still others may be scrapped even after being put into the shop for a little bit. Sometimes I'm able to make something I absolutely love from the very beginning, while others, as you'll see, take a little bit more work.



The rabbit on the left ended up being part of an Easter card that I have since stopped listing, but the rabbit on the right was clearly an attempt at a different approach, or maybe a Kindergartener made it.



This tree eventually became the art print "Bluebird of Happiness", but after painfully drawing the tree and the roots, I decided that I didn't like the look of the roots. Luckily, Photoshop comes in handy in altering things like that.



Sometimes it takes a lot of writing out a phrase, or even a word, before I find one that I'm happy with. I'll try different ways of aligning the words, or even sometimes as simple has how I write my "o". I usually end up using the original way I wrote it out anyway. It's good practice :)



The drawings on this page were made for the Valentine "Lit My Heart". Which one do you think I decided to use? Haha! You'll notice that sometimes I play with a phrase and how I word it. Sometimes they fly, and other times...not so much.
