One of my latest favorite sketchbooks prompts for the year is to use my weekly bouquet of fresh-cut flowers for inspiration.
These new sketchbook pages were inspired by pom daisies, carnations, alstromeria, and roses from recent bouquets. Then I filled the page with a dramatic spray of leaves and a few of the swirls I love to draw. Next up, I plan to turn these illustrations into new surface patterns, so stay tuned!
In order to fill up more sketchbooks this year, which is on my bucket list for 2015, I’ve been trying to sketch more lately. I’m hoping to fill up more sketchbook pages like these with flowers, leaves, flourishes, and other nature-inspired images I see out my window this spring.

Such beauty with detail 🙂
Thanks so much! I really appreciate your comments.
Just love them, I read somewhere the other day that a fresh bunch of flowers does so much good for those in a office, I think this applies to anyone if they are working in a office or not. Your designing has come along in leaps and bounds.
I believe that is true, Bev! Fresh flowers each week really perk up my home office, and my mood, even though I’m not in my office every day. Thanks so much for your comments about my designs! It means a lot!
