Line Drawings

About two years ago my brother-in-law brought me back a wonderful gift from Amsterdam (Thanks Peter!); handmade paper. At first I didn't know what to draw on it or what to use it for, but I knew something had to be created.

First check out this wonderful packaging!

I randomly started to play around with line art using a black Indian ink pen. These lines slowly started to develop a sense movement and shape. The black ink allowed the paper to really stand out and it looked amazing! Once I finished one, I was obsessed and kept on creating until five were finished.

Now what to do with the finished product? I wanted to frame them and arrange them on a wall, but instead they went back in the packaging and into my nightstand. A year later they thankfully they made it to our house unharmed; but where to put them? After painting our bedroom I thought they would look nice hanging above my dresser. Unfortunately I couldn't find the right size frame so I opted for one with a mat that would cut the corners off a bit. I think I like them more!

What do you think?

Of course Harper wanted to be in the pictures as well!

"Hi there!"


  1. ooohh! these are beautiful - you should sell prints of them on ETSY!

  2. Ok, I am in love with Harper. I found you via my own blog "That House on the Corner"--thanks for following!
