For a long while now I have wanted to use my original artwork to make small items such as greeting cards, magnets and stickers that sell easily and bring in a steady stream of monthly income. Yes, selling an original painting for $200-$500 is much more exciting than selling a $5 greeting card with that same image, but if I sell 100 of those greeting cards in a month.... Well, you do the math.
Yesterday, I turned my attention to making a nice sticker sheet that featured all my yummy cupcake sketches that I did recently. I made a template for the 3 sizes of stickers, 1.5 x 2.066, (full) 1.5 x 1.033 (half) and 1.5 x .5165 (quarter). Now I don't really know that much about this sticker business yet, and have found what appears to be a great resource that I will be going through this coming week but I thought I would share the link here if you also are curious like I am on the ins and outs of sticker making. http://blog.nelizabeth.com/2017/2/11/how-to-make-planner-stickers-to-sell-on-etsy
If you are interested in downloading this particular sticker collection, then please check out my Etsy Store. The cost is $3 for the download and then you can print as many of the stickers as you want as long as they are just for your personal use.

Here is a close up of several of the cupcake designs that I came up with. They are all fun and bright and were so much fun to design. For the sketches I used my Prismacolor Pencils, my Tombow markers and black ink. I outlined each image with a white border which I think results in a sticker on a sticker look. At this time, I'm really liking how that looks. It gives the image a "Pop" effect.
Catchup is already on my default font list on my computer but I guess I have failed to really see it. It is fun and yet not too difficult to read. I love how it looks on my most recent sticker sheet.
