Lots of flower drawings

This past week I wanted to try and make some of my own little labels and things for journaling like "to do" lists, top 10, inspiration, and more.  Plus small labels where I can add the date or a title. It was a lot of fun, I love drawing flowers on everything.... Mostly roses as you can tell :)

Sketchbook Page

I just started a new sketchbook this weekend and I hope to work in it at least once a week...on this first page I drew a couple of pansies and some groundcover and then used colored pencils to add the color. I switch back and forth between watercolors and colored pencils, and sometimes I think that colored pencils are definately my favorite medium to use.

Making Lists in my Art Journal

I found this project a couple of weeks ago on ihanna's blog and now I am trying to catch up on the lists. I thought the journal I have been using right now would be perfect because its small and just right for a list of a few words. It's a journal where I've already done the background collages and as it turns out a lot of them suited the list ideas perfectly like this one on Dream Places to Travel  which already had a picture of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
My list of 5: Paris, the Cotswolds in England, Cornwall England, Maine(which is the one place on this list that I've been, but I just love it, so I included it) and Hawaii. 

The next prompt is Favorite Fruits  and my list includes:Cherries, Peaches, Raspberries, Canteloupe, and Strawberries
