I went to sketch out some new embroidery ideas that were busting at the folds of my brain...and found I was out. The only sketchbook I had not filled up was a giant one I used to use for landscape or take alongs to the art museum. Way too big. So I went out and bought more. I also nabbed a watercolor pad (or two) since my oldest just got some watercolors. Another thing I want to pick up again...and really, what new thing do I NOT want to do? :P
Anyway, when I went digging for my old pencils, I also found my watercolor pencils. So I played. This is the "before". I have yet to add the water. I decided to divide the larger page into strips for bookmarks. Also inspired by my oldest who asked me to make him one. He keeps forgetting what page of Dante's Inferno he is on.
Now keep in mind, it has been quite some time since these old fingers have sketched out anything other than what I have done for my embroidery pieces. And many of those are merely traces of others' designs.
Now for those of you who may know my son well enough - which one do you think is his?
