Art Journal Pages

These pages ended up being all about food....on the left side, with Fall coming on it makes me want comfort food:
Cupcakes, Pasta, Potatoes, and Mac and Cheese, not healthy I know, but I just love them.
On the right side inspirations for food and Afternoon Tea:
little tea sandwiches, cookies, and Spiced Tea

Pages from my 'illustrated discovery journal'

I love putting together collages of things that inspire me. I find images in magazines and print things from my favorite blogs and Pinterest. Then I add little labels and bits of decorative paper to add writing and descriptions. It's a very relaxing way to spend and hour, especially with a cup of tea to sip on, while I cut and paste....I think I'll do another one today. It's a good way to spend a saturday.

Sketching this weekend

Over the long holiday weekend I spent some of the time doing drawings and watercolors and I finished my sketchbook, so now I will be starting a new one.....

 Some of the objects on my desk, a rose and lettering practice
Drawings of my desk and my art cabinet holding all of my supplies.
This last page of the book is a pressed rose with washi tape holding the stem.
It is fun to complete a project because I haven't always been good about finishing ideas once I start. A lot of the time I abandon the idea and start something new, but I'm getting better at it, and it's just really nice to finish this sketchbook before I move on to the next one.
