Going to the beach blog hop and free digi!

If you follow me on instagram, or even on the blog, you know that I've developed a little love for doodling.  On the side, I've started to learn adobe illustrator so that I could have nice, stamp-like perfect images of my drawings.

Since our family is getting ready for the beach, I drew a beach girl and asked some of my favorite crafty friends to help me show her off:

Life is good!

Learning illustrator... and a free digi stamp for you!


Once I decided on her size and printed her out, I paired her with some beachy lawn fawn stamps, and got to coloring.

I love her princess-leia buns and the strawberries on her suit!

And, just to show what else you could do with a digi stamp, I printed off a larger version and decided to test her out as a blond:

A little more of a pop-art feel to this one! I paired her with the scripty hello die from lawn fawn and sponged purple ink to cover the background. Tip: print her out a 2nd time on thin computer paper, cut her out and paint the back of her head with a 2-way glue pen. When the adhesive dries, you have a mask to use for this kind of treatment.

It's hard to tell, but the purple panel is popped up on foam squares - even the little bits inside the scripty die-cut letters.

I hope you like her! Since I'm just growing my skills, I'm offering her as a free digi.

You can download the JPEG or the PNG versions.


Follow the links to whichever format suits you, then right click and save it to your computer.

If you decide to download and use her, will you leave me a comment?  If even a handful of you like the idea, I'd love to offer a just-for-fun digi here and there.

Special thanks to Deasy for formatting the file for me into the download-friendly versions!

  29. hello there

    while I was just meandering around blog-land, I saw a link to your digis so came over to have a look - then found this freebie you have so generously offered to give away for free. She's so cute - reminds me of my sister when we were younger in our bathing costumes! Thank you so much. I love how you showed a different way to use her too.
