Learning to be an artist is more about accepting yourself as an artist than anything else. Change your mindset, be willing to make bad art and practice.
How to watch the Thursday webinar
I prefer to use an A5 Leuchtturm 1917 dotted journal.
*this is an affiliate link. My favorite is Lime Green.
Examples of some of my doodles in my bullet journal:
Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios draws all my patterns. You can buy my designs on her website or my own online store.
The app I use on the ipad for drawing my patterns: Graphic
I now have an online course which will teach you step by step how I use Graphic for create or color planning rug hooking patterns. You can find more information here: howtorughook.com/courses/
It replaces Adobe Illustrator which is $29.99 per month to use. At $8.99 for the ipad app, it is truly a bargain. There is a steep learning curve, so download the manual and give it a read.
