Tobin’s Chalk Art

Tobins Chalk Art color adjust

Last summer, Tobin was starting to get interested in drawing. He spent a lot of time outside on the driveway drawing with chalk.  I wanted to capture some of his first art, so I got up on a ladder to snap some shots.  This Scrapbook Generation sketch was the perfect way to incorporate the artwork photos as well as Tobin in process.  See what more designers did with the same sketch in the August 2014 issue of CREATE magazine!

The Perfect Pumpkin

Thursday, March 20th, 2014


I started scrapbooking 2012’s Halloween and pumpkin photos with this color scheme (yellow, green, tan, and orange) because of the color challenge for CREATE‘s March issue.  Well I wanted to finish up all in the same color scheme.  It was a fun one to work with!

Its the Little Things

On the fourth of July, I made this “firefly” for Tobin out of a Sprite bottle, paper, pipe cleaners, and buttons.  Then you stick glowsticks inside and voila!  We went out right before bed to fly him on the trail behind our home.
