Alphabet Letter Patterns

I have been so busy I have not posted these for a while, so I have three for you today, "H, I & J."
                                       STEP 1                                     STEP 2                            STEP 3
                                      STEP 1                   STEP 2                   STEP 3                STEP 4
                                           STEP 1                STEP 2               STEP 3                  STEP 4
I am still working on the Celtic Pattern Toy, trying to arrange for it to be made at a reasonable cost, as I believe craft should be affordable for every one. Also I am drawing lots of samples and writing out easy instructions that I can continue to post for those not confident in coming up with their own designs. I have never made a youtube video before, and believe it will be the best way to show how to make the Celtic Knot Designs, so I am learning to do that also. I would like to have this ready before Christmas, but I am not promising.
Hope you enjoy these patterns.

Celtic Pattern Maker

Celtic Pattern Maker

I have made myself a new toy that makes it easier for me to draw Celtic Designs. I have done 16 since yesterday with a minimum of fuss. I have posted a few of them below. The first designs are in pencil and the scanner makes them look blotchy but you get the idea.

These ones below I have inked in the outlines and cleaned them up a bit more.

What do you think?

Hope you like them. I think I am on a roll. I will post some more when I have finished playing,

Flower Outline 3


Well I do not know what is happening but my Wacom Pen decided it would play nice today. I have not been able to calibrate it for a few weeks now and all of a sudden it is all lined up without me doing anything so I give up. If anyone knows about these pens I would love some advice.

Here is a flower outline for you to play with. Colour, doodle, zentangle or whatever you like, just enjoy. You have my permission to use your finished works however you please, but if you want to use my outlines only, please direct people back to my site or ask permission.

My book has just been reprinted and I now have plenty of stock, so if you would like some alphabet, numeral, word, border or frame outlines that mix and match, just follow the Etsy link to the right of this post.

Mandala 2

Hi all. I am having computer issues at present. My Wacom pen is not co-operating and I cannot get it to calibrate. If there is anyone out there who knows what the problem is when the pen will not calibrate please let me know.
I usually post these designs in light blue so you can do whatever colour you like over the top but until my Wacom pen plays nice I am afraid you get it in black.
Hope you like the outline.
I hope to post 2 new Alphabet Patterns this Thursday as I did not get to post one last week.
Have a great week everyone.

Celtic Challenge 35

Celtic Challenge 35

My printer/scanner is not co-operating with me this week. I think I need to retire it and buy a new one. I cannot get it to print properly. Black turns out dark red etc and the scanner which used to be quite good is not picking up all the colour in pictures and the look very motley.

I guess what I am trying to tell you all is that I do not have a completed picture to show you for this challenge even though I have done one. I will need to enlist someone with a good camera and add the finished pic later if you all don't mind.

I hope you enjoy decorating this one as much as I did. I used a bit of colour with mine, but it is up to you how you decorate.

I would love to see the results, so add them too the Mr Linky below so we can all admire your efforts.
