International Drawing Day

Today is International Drawing Day. I put the button over on my sidebar. I'm a little late in the day but I traveled to my daughter's house today so I have a bit of an excuse. After I got there we went to eat dinner and then dropped one of her daughters off for a party. While my daughter chatted with the hostess I took the opportunity to do my drawing. I was sitting out in the van so I drew the neighbors mailbox. Not a great drawing but it is a drawing and it was done on Drawing Day. I did it! Did you?
This was drawn in a small notebook I keep in my purse with a regular #2 pencil.

Journal Page

I had a good time playing with a prompt given today in a group I am in called Blissfully Art Journaling . I haven't figured out yet if the prompt really should have been what it said (Yahoo was sure messed up today and messages and entries into group sites weren't working well) but this was my take on what I read.
This was done with watercolor pencil except where I messed up and grabbed a regular colored pencil by mistake. I also used Pitt pens and did the drawing first in pencil.


I am part of a group of people who like to make
inchies and some of us more or less gather round at Inchybyinch blog where we get a new challenge weekly. This week's challenge was shells. I knew just what I wanted to do and it's probably because of Kate's Watercolor Pencil Workshop I am in currently.

I took a one inch square piece of watercolor paper and drew in a very basic beach scene. I wetted it down and voila! There it is - the seaside! Then I took a shell and glued it on over my little scene and added some words. One inchy done!

I had fun with this one. I hope you enjoy seeing it. Maybe you'd like to give an inch a try. If so, drop on by Inchybyinch where you'll see the week's theme. You make your inchy and leave the link in the comments section. We'd love to have some more people join in.
