The holiday spirit has swept me away.
Here in the U.S. we’re getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow which means I’ll be decorating for Christmas this weekend. YAY!
I thought that I’d break the pattern this week with my blog post to show you something more creative, since I’m feeling inspired. I’ve spent lots of time watercoloring, sketching and knitting.
When I’m in that creative place, I tend to lose hours on my artistic projects. But, there are plenty of times that I hit a creative block and most of the time, it’s in the midst of sketching.
I don’t consider myself an artist in the traditional sense and I’m not always happy with my sketches. Because of that, I’ve learned how to use Illustrator to take a photo and turn it into a sketch that I usually work with to make a watercolor painting.
To help those of you who struggle with the same issue, I’ve created a tutorial on how I use Illustrator. I hope it inspires you!
Do you use Illustrator like this? Have any tips to add? Have any questions about this process? Leave them in the comments below.
For those of you in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving!
