A Rocky Scribble

    Scribbler Too is a fun little app to use online for quick sketches that take on a life of their own. I've used it several times and the following scribble is my favorite to date.

I recently added a Wacom Touch Crafter Tablet to my arsenal of artsy enticements. The touch part of it reminds me of the iPod or iPad, of which I have neither. :)

At any rate, it's been interesting to finger paint and surf web pages using touch but I must say that playing the chess game that was pre-loaded on my computer with Vista has been a blast, too. There's something about trouncing a king with a touch that makes me grin with pleasure. Not that it happens that often...

Isn't it a fun little program? How's your scribbling?   I don't think it's downloadable. Just use it, copy your masterpiece and return any time you feel an urge. I like it!

Tile and a Dry-Erase Marker

There's hardly anything I won't do to avoid doing what I should be doing.

A small box of subway tile had been hanging out here for years when I  read that ceramic tile could be used as a white board. I promptly ordered a pack of 4 Bic low-odor dry-erase markers (big spender, here). The little visitor guy and I drew and erased for an entire afternoon. When we were partially pleased with a doodle, I photographed it to be used for 'stuff'.

Subway tiles with temporary images are now clutter-making every flat surface. I plan to tile a plastic summer table for lazy outdoor afternoons of sketching, TicTacToe, Pictionary or Hang Man - kind of like a poor man's iPad or Xoom. Or an Etch-a-Sketch, or...
