The Alphabet Series, “A” & “B”

I wanted to tackle a BIG project, one that involves lots of time and effort (for the same reasons I took up zendoodling). My son is learning how to read and I thought I might make cards for him (he’s a visual learner like myself). That initial idea evolved into this line of 3.5×3.5 creations. I’m up to “D” currently and enjoying every minute. I want to expand my vision on this series once it’s complete, maybe turn it into some sort of alphabet book. Currently the pieces are all in my etsy shop for $12.75/each + $1.95shipping. The frame isn’t included, but you can find it at Hobby Lobby (all of their frames are perpetually 50% off!). Enjoy!

"ye olde Alphabet" These pieces are available for sale in my etsy shop!

This seemed fitting.


The "A". The colors were inspired by my daughter; she loves all forms of purple.

The "B". I was thinking of my oldest son with this one; his favorite color is blue but this made me think of the energy young boys can have.
