Google+ What I Made Today: A Sketchbook Start

A Sketchbook Start

Last week I received my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project which I learned about earlier this month from Kristina of Painting with Trees. I hemmed the first day, hawed the second, then committed on the third. It seems a project fitting to me in this season, one that will offer a modest dose of discipline to my artistic activities. Activities which wane in spring and summer, and wax in autumn and winter. It's a "good" fit.

So today, between a score of other tasks, I made time to prep one half of the pages for my creative intentions. Tomorrow the other half will be prepped. Then begins three months of creating … something on those pages. Something that expresses my theme, "Down Your Street."

And the voices are already whispering.

So, yeah … that's what I made today. Peace.

As the veil lifts... may the whispers become clear inspirations :)

I just read about this project on another site. It sounds SO interesting! Will you share here, or is that not allowed?

I'm doing the project too- I signed up earlier so I worked on it over summer. Mine it's titled "it's raining dogs and cats"- I made a poem about food to ilustrate and collage.

So cool that you are doing this! Looking forward to seeing how your sketchbook evolves.

I heard about the project a while back and hemmed & hawed until I talked myself out of doing it.
