Did you know that baby giraffes drop up to 6 ft when they are born, usually landing on their head. Surprisingly, most survive!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Awww, love your baby giraffe. I have made a few postcards to mail out to friends hoping it will bring a smile to their faces, especially now.

  2. OMG he’s so cute, beautifully done. Been sending out handmade cards to friends, family and even people I don’t really know well, but mostly to seniors. Sign them From someone who cares😊

  3. What a beautiful little guy – those eyelashes! And I love the color palette you chose.
    A question on an entirely different subject, if you don’t mind. I have a block of wonderful watercolor paper. How do I separate the sheets without ruining them? Is there a trick? Cause I’ve already spoiled 2 sheets of this gorgeous paper.
    There is a mesh strip along each edge but I can’t lift it or cut through it, even with a utility knife.

    1. Thank you, Sharon! Ah yes! Removing the sheets from the block. I can’t say that I’m a real expert, but it works best for me, if I separate about an inch to an inch and a half at a time, peeling or cutting away the mesh that has built up. After I remove a sheet, I trim away the left-over mesh with scissors.

      The tool that has worked best for me is plastic knife – a small one with a very thin blade. I don’t use real knives for fear of cutting myself!
