#dailysketchplan2018

Michael and I’s daily sketchbook plan is going along wonderfully.... the two of us and a few others who have joined in, are sketching regularly. You can see all the posts using our hashtag here! It has been fun to see the wide variety of subject matter going into everyone’s books!!! Monsters, portraits, plants (mine) and cool characters!

Here’s is what I have put in my book this week.....























My process for my found poems is just this:

My son, Jace, ripped apart an old book... Zane Grey. So I decided to use it for the poems. I randomly rip out one page and limit myself to only the words on that page, just one side. No flipping. Cut them out, glue them down using a glue stick and tweezers. A quick and fun way to fill a page in my sketchbook.  It is almost like fortune telling.... you don’t know what you have to say about your life or your day until you are limited to 100 words on a page. Plus I think the vintage book factor makes it more fun. 


On top of sketching daily I have also been taking a photo a day.....

  1. Wonderful journal pages! I did something similar with words when I did the thirty day challenge. I love creating that way because it's always an intuitive surprise! Great job!

  6. Beautiful pages, wow! That ficus bonsai one is my fave! Also, hooray for found word poetry! I did some a while back from an old Shakespeare play, which was fun. Great idea to limit yourself to one page and see what you can come up with!

  9. Love the sketches Andrea! I started sketching yesterday!!! We'll see. . .

    The found poem is beautiful... what a wonderful idea. thanks for sharing how it came about too!

    The pictures are soooo winter dreamy. . . and the dog, Something in his/her posturing in that photo. . . I am reminded of when I had a Siberian Husky who, of course, adored the snow. Once I was told by her/my trainer, "if you had 100 fenced acres and you let her loose in that setting, you would always find her at the corner of that property looking to go further." lol

    1. Oh, yeah. I hope you share your sketches!!!!!!
      And yes, the poems have been fun, never know what will come about!
      And Kodah: yes. He is so independent.... good and bad. He would (and does) run off whenever the door is opened and he can see freedom. He can be so frustrating, but he is also protective of his yard and sooo pretty!
