I've finished the first page of my new ring bound Canson journal that I bought at Michael's a couple of weeks at half price. The paper if great for sketching, but definitely won't take water media, so for the color I just used dry watercolor pencils.
I think the biggest reason I've never stuck to a journal and done "finished" spreads in it is that I could never decide on a theme. I've decided that I don't need it to be themed and it will reflect whatever it is that is going on in my life.
Today the hubster is seeing a foot/ankle specialist for a second opinion before actually going through with the Achilles tendon surgery that is currently scheduled for the second week of October. I was going to accompany him just so I could sit in the waiting room and sketch people, but I think I will opt out. He really doesn't need me to go and I think I will work out and then try my hand at some new art. I may try to sketch a tennis player today while watching more matches of the US Open.
Sunday is Miss 7's birthday - so she will become another Miss 8. I guess the current Miss 8 whose birthday is in January will have to become Miss 8.5. The birthday party is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in a park across from her Dad's house and I am really looking forward to it.
Next week I am going over to visit my sister in Stevensville and am hoping to meet up with Dee one evening and hope to see Sandy as well. I will take sketching materials and my camera so I will have something to share.
I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and that you will have something to share as I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing just what you are up to.
