Priced at $15 and available to ship Sept 22. Pre-order at (order before Sept 1 and get free shipping!)

Part 3 of Pam Garrison class at CreativeBug

Part 3 of the Pam Garrison class Creative Sketchbooking at Creativebug was all about playing with collage and lettering and doodles. Collage was used to cover up unwanted "bleed thru" on the backs of pages and to add extra dimension to the background. Played around with some responsive drawing, too. Loved this session! #Creativebug #CBSketching

A spectacular show in the night sky

Anybody happen to catch any of the meteor showers the last few nights? I was lucky to watch from the beach. A couple nights there was even some heat lightning thrown in for a truly spectacular show!

Sketchbook page from Part 2 of Pam Garrison class

This is my painted background. Didn't have my watercolors with me, so used acrylics with lots of water. Then I started my responsive drawings ...

I saw flowers and a wheel, a sailboat and a beachball ...

and a sunflower with angel wing leaves and peas in a pod ...

and colorful birds surfing on a funky wave being chased by a tornado full of eggs.

Pam said to look for things we wouldn't typically draw. Mission accomplished!

Part 2 of Pam Garrison class at CreativeBug

Was so busy with the new website and store details that I fell behind in Pam Garrison's online class! This is what she's teaching in Part 2 which was released last week. I'm off to play in my sketchbook...
