Sunday Sketches

Below is my Sunday sketch, hosted by Sophia. (See link to the right) I'm enjoying the weekly challenge to have a new sketch by Sunday and here are a few I worked on this week.

I'm practicing mermaids so I can paint one for my granddaughter someday, and the birdcage and birds are for the WIP from last weekend.
Here is my finished journal page for the Sketchbook Journal tour.

That's all I have for now, and I'm not sure how much painting I'll get done today. Yesterday was my birthday and friends are taking me to a movie today. Yah! We're going to see "Switched." Has anyone seen it yet? It looks like a fun movie.
Have a great day everyone!

New Sketch

Hello and happy Sunday! Below is my latest sketch I started last week.

I think I'll add her to my journal and paint her this afternoon.
Here is my box I started last week...finished now.

I'm thinking of painting another box in pink, for my granddaughter who is due to be born in September. Maybe with an angel on it or a mermaid? I'm still in the planning stages for that project.
And finally, below is a painting in progress:

I really want to try adding some metal but I'm not sure what it will be. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of maybe a bird cage?
Well, that's all I have for now. If you want to see other sketches check out Sophia's blog. (See link on the right)
Have a good week!

Finished Sunday Sketch

Hi all! I hope everyone is having a restful Sunday. Below is my Sunday sketch for this week. I've already completed it and it's in my new journal.

I wasn't sure where I was going with the purple, but I wanted to try using some different colors. I have certain colors I want to use all the time, and I really need to try working with something different.

I'm off to do some shopping! Have a good day!

New Sunday Sketches

Happy Sunday to everyone! I've been working in my new journal for the Sketchbook Project that I signed up for recently. The only problem has been the thin paper. I tried to glue several pages together to make it sturdy enough for paint, but it just wrinkled the paper and in some cases, curled it. Next, I tried PVA glue, which seems to be better then gel medium. Anyway, here is my sketch and finished page.

I also played with a chipboard box I bought awhile ago from Hobby Lobby. So far, I've just painted the lid.

Well, that's all I have for today. If you want to see other sketches, check out Sophia's blog. (Link is on the side)
Have a wonderful day and week!
