Inktober and what's keeping me up at night....

inktober tools

At the beginning of the month I joined a challenge last minute to ink my way through October.

I am obsessed!

Black ink and white sketchbook pages = lust!

I've picked up new brush pens, felt tip pens, calligraphy nibs and inks.  I have been exploring, experimenting and am really excited about what is showing up creatively.

If you are an Instagram addict like myself, search the hashtag #inktober and peruse all the fabulous ink work!

Here's a snapshot of my own Instagram feed with my latest inks and snap shots.
