The Sketchbook Project

I was reading a few scrappy blogs one day and saw a link to the sketchbook project.  I was curious and clicked on it.  The site has inspired me!!  You pick a theme and you fill the sketchbook up with art.  When I learned that I wouldn't get my book back, I wasn't sure I wanted to do it.  I thought I could make my own book!  I saw a you tube video that also gave me some inspiration about her sketchbook.

I also enjoy reading Donna Downey's blog as she has Inspiration Wednesday.  Since she started posting this every Wednesday, it has made me want to make one too.  For Christmas one year, I got one of those suitcase of art media/supplies.  I have never really used it that much but I think this project will inspire me to use it.  I also have some acrylic paints that I bought a while back.  Donna always post the media she uses to make the pages in her art journal.  I enjoy watching her videos and learning the techniques she uses.

Hobby Lobby has drawing classes that I have wanted to take for quite some time.  I might have to finally get enrolled in one.  I have never been much of a drawer like my sister & mom.  That might give me the assistance to help me with being able to draw.

I went to Borders tonight and got me a moleskine sketchbook.  I am looking forward in getting started!  I need to get my scrap table cleared off for some sketchbook inspiration!

The sketch book idea sounds pretty cool! That is great that you are taking a drawing class. I love to draw but never took a class either. Good luck!
