Painted Alphabet


Singing the ABC's has become a standard part of our day.  Luca loves songs & can make up to C then hums along the rest of the song with us. (chiming back in at Now I know my A, B, C's...)  I recently painted the alphabet & was happy with how it turned out.  I like the moody ground color with the pops of bright color.  I think it would be a fantastic rug.

Hello there, I just discovered your blog thru your website. I've been an admirer of your artwork since your artwork appeared on scrapbooking products for KI Memories. I'm loving looking at all your wonderful artwork!! I'll be checking back regularly : )

Jill, I'm a long-time admirer of your beautiful and funky illustration! It's so playful and deceptively simple, and your patterns are always a treat for the eye. Anyway, I'm an illustrator myself, and I wondered if I could ask you what kind of scanner you are using to scan your artwork? I am trying to get some of my stuff scanned but not having great luck with the colors. I would love to hear more about your process on your blog... thanks for sharing your art with us!

Welcome - Jen Thanks for the lovely comment.
Please do come back for some inspiration!

Hi Hailey...
Thanks to you also for the kind words. Regarding the scanner I use it's nothing fancy. It's an Epson Perfection 2580. (size little bigger than a legal pad)
This means scanning & piecing together... but it works & the quality is pretty good. *That said I always have to color adjust which takes a while. (adjusting brightness/ contrast + hue saturation in photoshop to get it back to were it was pre scan)
Good Luck. Let me know if this helps!
