My very first attempt at drawing/painting in Serif Craft Artist Professional

Hello everyone

Today's post isn't a card, which in itself is unusual for me!  I was challenged by a crafting friend (you know who you are Fran!) to get out my Bamboo tablet and pen and have a go at drawing in Craft Artist Professional.  Now, those of you who remember my disasterous attempt at drawing and watercolouring a cupcake last year will know that I can't draw to save my life.  But, nothing daunted, I rose to the challenge and spent a very long time producing my first ever digital masterpiece.  And here it is:

Just think of the materpiece I would have been able to create if I was actually able to draw or paint!  Oh, by the way, I think I had better say (just in case you can't make it out) this is supposed to be lavender!  And I had better come clean and tell you that I cheated with the bow - it is from a digikit - but the rest is all my own work!

For anyone interested in learning more about Serif Craft Artist Professional there is now a group on Facebook called Serif Craft Artist Users Group, which is now one week old!  If you would like to join our group, please click here and ask to be added.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

  6. Thank you for your very positive feedback ladies. I am having fun playing with CAP and no-one was more surprised than me when I actually managed to "paint" something recognisable!
