My husband and I sat out on our deck last night, each of us with our sketch/drawing materials and just thoroughly enjoyed life. He had an easel set up and was drawing pictures of some fruit in a bowl, I had my little Aquabee 9x6 sketchbook and was drawing a picture of my coffee cup. When I can get back to my scanner I'll post my page (actually it's just the start of a page). I think I am going to enjoy the sketch journaling. Now I just have to be consistent with it and learn how to use my art supplies. I've started with the Derwent Inktense pencils and am loving them. Not sure how they are supposed to be used, but they are working for me like this so far. Picture later... I've also joined two Yahoo! Groups featuring sketchbook journaling - Everyday Matters and Day2Day. I'm nowhere near the skill or talent level of most of the participants so for awhile I'll just read and learn. Maybe later I'll post some of my pages for them to see - but maybe not. The sketch journaling should be a really good complement to my photography.
My creative life is getting better and better. My real life was and is already good. Nice!!
