The Sketchbook Challenge - May Theme

The Sketchbook Challenge theme for May is "Can't Resist."  I can't resist drawing houses. I started these while flying on an airplane, and they were fun to just draw with a pencil.  Some were painted with watercolors and some were colored in with Crayola felt tip markers.  The beauty of this project, is that it is portable.   Anywhere, anytime, draw, paint, coloring and outlines!  Tags are 2-1/2" wide by 4-3/4" high and you can buy them at your local office supply store.

I love the delicacy of this one painted with watercolors and the black outline with a Pilot Razor Point Pen

Bright vibrant colors with Crayola felt tip markers and a black Flair pen for the outline.
A mix of watercolors and Crayola felt tip markers and a black Flair pen.  These could be make into gift tags or framed together for the wall.  You could even make an accordion book with them.  The possibilities are endless.  Make Time for Art!

  3. I was actually looking for 'I Spy' quilt squares when I saw your blog on someone's sidebar. I love this kind of artwork and am your newest follower. Don't want to miss anything! :-)

  4. love these. love the idea. love the material. LOVE the result!

  5. Wow! Those sketches are amazing! As a big fan of art, I also enjoy creating sketches like these. Sometimes I get so caught up in my artwork that I forget about other commitments, such as my online classes. In those cases, I have to contact an online class provider site and ask for help with my task so that I can complete it on time.
