Sketching On My Ipad

4 Mar

When I’m working on a new project, I like to sketch out my ideas first.   Sketching lets me work through all the thoughts and ideas that are swimming around in my head, and helps me get a better idea of what the finished project will look like.

Lately, instead of using my paper and pen, I’ve been using a free drawing app on my Ipad called Inkflow It’s really fun and easy to use.  

I used the Inkflow app to sketch out the food ideas for the double birthday party my daughter and I are working on.

Party Display Drawing

Here’s the sketch I did for figuring out how to make a Styrofoam display to hold the Angry Bird Cheese Skewers I made for the party.   Wow, no paper, no pen…just my fingertip. Pretty cool, huh.

After I finished the Styrofoam display, I sketched this picture showing how it will look on the kitchen counter.  I’ll tell you how I made it in another post.

Here’s the sketches I did of the other food items we’re planning to serve at the party to go with Kylan’s Angry Bird, Dinosaur and Super Hero theme.

After playing around with the Inkflow app, I decided to upgrade to the Inkflow PLUS version…

and now I can draw in COLOR!   Neat, huh.   If you enjoy drawing. you’ll love these Inkflow apps.

Sketching on my Ipad…another way to satisfy those creative urges!
