Little Dreamer Apprentice Round 3 Freebie

Have you been following along in the Little Dreamer Designs Apprentice Program? In Round 1 I made a mini kit called Snap!, which you can download here. In Round 2 it was all about the elements, which you can download here. In Round 3, we had to draw doodles in Illustrator. This was WAY fun and I loved it!

LDD Apprentice Round 3 Freebie: Beachy Keen Doodles    ::Download HERE::

Please leave a comment in the LDD gallery if you download. And don't forget to check out all the other amazing doodles in the Apprentice Round 3 gallery and leave comments for them!

For this round, I drew the doodles in Illustrator first.  The sun and the surfboard were colored in Illustrator and then copied into Photoshop for distressing.  The wave, palm tree, and beach ball were imported into Art Rage and hand-painted, then exported to Photoshop for distressing.  I have to say, I really love drawing!  It really brought back some childhood memories of drawing and doodling for me.  I used to draw all the time when I was younger.  The pressures of school and having to get a job made me forget about drawing, but this re-awakened that part of me again.  I'm thankful for that!  Oh and I just wanted to point out that these Beachy Keen Doodles also include B&W .png versions in clean and distressed versions, plus a set of .abr brushes for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements!

Today after work I went to my work gym for the interval training gym class. You know you haven't been to the gym in a while when the instructor emails you and says, "Where have you been? Come back to gym class!" Ha ha! So I went. It was interval training with 4 minutes of working really hard to get the heartrate up, and then three minutes of working not as hard. We did a five minute warm up, then 4/3/4/3/4/3/4/3, then hand weights and abs. I haven't sweated like that in a long while, even running 9 miles, LOL. It's good for me though, so I'll be back.

I will be having a sale for iNSD this weekend in both of my stores! I will be sending out the coupon code in my newsletter, so if you are not receiving it yet, be sure to sign up here! Also, I will be giving away random coupons (some for free stuffs even) on my Facebook fan page and Twitter on Saturday, spaced out during the day. They will be limited use coupons on a first see, first grab basis, so I will give a couple of posts a few minutes beforehand to let you know the coupons are coming up. If you haven't followed me on Twitter or are not yet a fan on Facebook, be sure to do so for all the fun stuffs! (Well, that and random thoughts on any given day, LOL.)
