[Drawing] Handmade Cards
June 21, 2011
This month I want to share a simple craft with you that incorporates your drawings. Have you ever thought about making your own gift cards?
What's New at AllAboutDrawings.comDon't forget to check out the new page on "How to make a gift card" - it just might generate some fresh new drawing ideas for you. Inspiration can be found in the oddest places!
Caedyn, who features on the 5 year old artist page, made the front page of his local paper. Congratulations Caedyn, may your artwork continue to give you enjoyment for all time.
There are new rules on "Your Space".
It's really frustrating when a page attracts comments and the artist hasn't requested to be notified about any activity on their page. It occurred to me that they must not be interested so it really is a waste of everyone's time to make a comment or ask a question.
Time is too valuable to be wasted, so from now on submissions won't be accepted without a request to be notified.
There are still some questions about the "Drawing Made Easy" newsletter. If you only give your name and email address, you will receive the free drawing lessons by email.
It won't cost you anything providing you don't divulge any sort of payment details. Never, ever give out credit card or bank account details unless you intentionally set out to buy something on the internet.
So, you do get free lessons but you can expect them to promote various products, too. That shouldn't stop you from benefiting from free information that is shared willingly.
I promise I will never lead you astray! When I find free information that is useful, I trial it and then I pass it along to you.
Tip of the MonthKeep pens that have run out of ink so you can use them for highlighting features in your drawings.
For example, it's a great way to keep whiskers white in animal drawings.
Press firmly to etch the marks into the paper and then use the side of the pencil to shade over that area.
The pencil glides right over the indents, leaving your impression nice and white.
Handy LinksSee the small selection of online art books that I have personally bought and reviewed. This list only contains good quality books with a money back guarantee.

Drawing is a very economical hobby. Check the drawing supplies page which describes the materials you need to get started.
The Drawings Blog shows you the last 30 pages to be added to the site.
, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read this issue. I appreciate your continuing support.
Take care and I'll catch up with you again in August. In the meantime, have many happy creative days!
