Finally found my inspiration to start The Sketchbook Project 4 which is sponsored by Art House Co-op currently located in Atlanta, GA (but relocating after the new year to New York City...kinda makes me sad) which I signed up for over a month ago...but with the wedding and all...just didn't have the time or motivation to get started.
But after this "organizational" and "inspirational" post last week I was in the mood to attack my piles of magazines that have started to gather around the house again...I swear they make babies and multiply while we sleep....shhhhh
So I was really proud of myself because I got through one pile stacked this high and sorted the clippings in a temporary file next to my chair while my DH and I watched old movies and snuggled in while it was raining outside.
DH even went to the coffee shop and picked us up some Triple Grande Mochas with Skim Milk and No Whip Cream...and btw...only two "fast" squirts of chocolate...the waiters at the coffee shop know my DH when he comes in and they no longer have to be told how to make MY perfect mocha...lol
So while the boss was away...the little mouse played...and opened up her google reader and found these wonderful videos that Teesha Moore is doing on her blog...for free...I was so excited that I watched all day long as she kept uploading more of them...cool beans...she's done eight so far and I can't wait for the rest to come out...here's the first one for you to see where I'm going with this on my Sketchbook:
So today with inspiration from Teesha's videos I am starting my Sketchbook Project by painting all of my background papers with watercolors:
Don't you just love this bright orange/red color...I'm going to use this one alot through out my sketchbook. Now if I could just stop myself from being distracted by the wonderful views out my windows again...love it when the sun shines...awwwww
