Pages From My Sketchbook

In order to fill up more sketchbooks, which is on my bucket list for 2015, I’m having fun coming up with new drawing prompts, so I’ve been trying to sketch A LOT more lately.

I found another drawing challenge on Instagram that looked fun. So far I’ve only managed to do the “dance” prompt. I wanted to stick with my theme of nature journal drawings, so I thought of birds and their funny mating dances.

I was inspired by the daily and weekly journal pages I see other artists do, so I thought I would try that.

But then I decided my days and weeks aren’t exciting enough to document, so I tried capturing an image that stuck with me from the week, which I really liked doing.sketchbook journal for one week

Now I’m thinking it’s more realistic for me to fill up a page a week of random doodles, which is less pressure and more fun to experiment with random ideas.sketchbook pag random doodles

I finally finished my sunflower frame, which I think I’m going to leave just like this. Once I digitize it, it will be easier to interchange hand-lettered sayings or an array of doodled birds or animals.sketchbook page sunflower frame

This is what I’m working on now – a fancy frame to resemble pressed leaves. I just need to fill in the areas around the frame.sketchbook page pressed leaves frame

This is why it always seems to take me so long to finish one page – so many ideas! Happy drawing!

  • Thanks for sharing your sketchbook pages.
    I love your drawing style.
    I’m struggling with finding my own, but I wouldn’t mind at all if it ends up resembling yours 🙂

    • Thanks so much. I really appreciate your comments. I draw a lot, and practice, practice, practice, because I want to get better and develop my own unique style. I hope you are able to practice and develop your own unique style too.
