It would be great if anyone else out there wants to join in too. No rules. No sign ups. But we will sketch daily and possibly post daily (for the most part, but no pressure or obligations) to Instagram, (we plan to use the hashtag #dailysketchplan2018 on Instagram), and possibly even do weekly blog posts as well.
So if you already sketch daily, consider joining us. If you don’t yet, but would like to, please consider joining us! You have till the 20th if you want to start when we start, but since there are no rules and no set timeline you can join in anytime, just use that hashtag and we will see you and follow along in your progress too! And if you are not on Instagram just leave a comment once in awhile so I know you are creating too.I plan to post here: @fallingladies
And Michael’s is here: @a_dotty_hill
When considering how I wanted to fill my sketchbook I came up with a list. (Of course, since I am addicted to lists) I would love to just pick one theme and fill my whole book with that, but I would get too bored too quickly. So maybe I will pick 3 or 4 topics to use, but most likely is I will do a little of everything and just throw it all in my book!
So here’s my list and here’s my sketchbook (cool huh!) I have been holding this book for a year, not knowing how to start it or what to use it for....
Daily Sketchbook ideas:
Found poetry cut from old books
Seed pods/ nuts/ nature sketches
Perpetual sketchbook (I’ll explain later)
Things you used to own
Under the sea
Packaging that inspires you
Things that fit in the palm of your hand
Use a Limited color palette
Or just Pen and ink
Or just pencil and one bright color
Do a Sketch but use one piece of paper or fabric as well
Glue down a magazine cut out and sketch off it
Character expressions & moods
Fabric design icons
Tea bag landscapes (I’ll explain later)
What you ate today
“What’s in front of you: breakfast, art supplies, your feet, your backyard, spouses face etc
Things in your purse
Collections: postage stamps, keys, favorite things: clothes you love, pens
An event from your day: scene at lunch hour, a chore you did
Things in jars
Children’s book rough draft
Artifacts from a world you create!!!!!
And actually I didn’t follow my own plan... I started sketching in it already instead of waiting till the 20th, just to see how this new paper takes pen and watercolor..... so here’s my entry to this week’s scribblepicnic!!! The theme this week was hot chocolate.
What are you waiting for, grab a sketchbook and get ready to join us! ...... pretty please.....
