I got a little more carried away with this sketch than I normally would.
It comes down to the fact that I used pencil rather than pen. Somehow it just begs to be smudged!
Anyway, I quite enjoyed the change of sketching this way :0)
And the little Moleskin sketchbook that I once hated, is fast becoming a little book of a hundred faces and I really like that! It's also surprising how much you learn about the face when you sketch one several times a week :0)
Anyway, apart from sharing with you just a sketch, I have discovered a new App that I want to tell you about, because I am sure that some of you will find it incredibly useful!
It's a FREE App that can be downloaded from iTunes to your iPad, if you have one.
Its called 'EZY watermark'.
For those of you who like to add a watermark to your images and like me you have been fiddling about with a ridiculously complicated program to do it, you really should try it out.
When I downloaded the App, I couldn't believe how simple it was!
Literally all you do is open the app, choose the photo, write the text you want to use and then drag it to where you want it on the image. You can then use your fingers to re-size it!
There's a little bar to determine how opaque you want the watermark and there is an option to choose from a ton of different fonts and colours! Once it's done, you click save and it automatically saves the newly water-marked image to your photo's.
I can honestly say that to watermark an image from start to finish takes me no more than a minute or two. So if you do have an iPad you should try it out!
Speaking of technical things - I have been noticing that a lot of you have a 'Networked Blogs' gadget on your side bar.
For such a long time I have been wondering what it actually is. To tell you the truth, I still don't really know, lol!
But not wanting to be the odd one out, I have also added it to my own side bar. Don't I look lonely, all by myself?
I found myself doing all sorts of things yesterday, which I have been meaning to do for a long time. I have made a Facebook page 'Sandra Busby Art' and I also joined Pinterest!
You can also see that I have added a 'Pin it' button below my posts, so feel free to pin away if you want to, just as long as you link the image back to my blog so people know where the image came from. I think they call that 'Pin it etiquette', lol!
So, you can follow me if you choose on either of those sites. But bear with me, they are brand new so at the moment there is literally nothing on them!
Anyway, perhaps you have a Facebook page, an arty Twitter account or a Pinterest account that I could follow! Let me know if you do :0)
Before I go, for those of you that missed my interview on Carrie Waller's blog a few months ago, she has put it on again today in one of her 'Best of Friday Feature' posts! You can click here if you would like to see it.
Anyway, that's it for now. Have a wonderful weekend!
