is craftalong another word for procrastination?  Grin

As far as my thesaurus is concerned, yes. Cheesy

We must have the same thesaurus! Grin

I wish I had signed up in time.
BUT:
 Here's something I remember from a fashion design sketching class years ago:
 We had to do 100 sketches very quick. The key was, just sketch fast, without laboring over it, and without worrying about it. Just go for it. Very suddenly, your hand loosens up, and you get "Into The Zone"
  Just thought this might help anyone who is struggling!
Just fill paper, and you will be amazed at the results!
Look forward to seeing some more posts!

I took photos finally of my book! Instead of battling it out with the poor lighting in my house I had the genius idea of taking photos outside. Haha only took me five years to figure that one out.

Which brings me to the question I always have when I photograph a large project? How many pictures are too many pictures? Also, I don't think I want to post all the photos I took because I want to encourage people to see it in person. How many photos do ya'll think I should post? Cheesy

I'm not going to be seeing these in person (unless something happens to where I actually end up in Frisco at the right time on the right day, which is so highly doubtful I'm not even going to hope for that) so I personally don't think there is such a thing as *too* many pics.  That could just be me though!  Cheesy

I paid to have my sketchbook scanned. I can post a link on this board when it is done.

This page (on the left) was done using the prompt that went something like "Sum up your weekend in symbols."

Posted an In Progress photo a while back. After finishing a couple of drawings with wings I was sick of drawing feathers. Originally the woman was going to have angel wings but I chose to go without.

I'm really proud of this spread because of the details put into it. The legs are movable. I used Nooo's tutorial on movable ATCs. The rooftop on the left (and the porch) is made of paper thin wood. Arranging the shingles took a long time but was worth it.

raerae - I love the sketch of the woman with the birdcages! I am planning on going to the Seattle showing - I really want to see the thin wood shingles in person. I bet it added some great texture!

I've worked on mine all weekend.  I'm so close to being done.  I had to take a short break so my eyes didn't pop out of my head but I'm going back to it now.  I'm having to force myself to remember that less is more.  It can be an awesome page and only have a few elements on it.

DawnsTrees - I hope the package I sent you in the Sketchbook Project swap is coming in handy because I know yours is amazingly useful for me.  I love all the little goodies I re-discover every time I open my paper-crafting boxes!

ok - back to work on my pages! Cheesy

I tried to work on mine in the car yesterday but I couldn't do it very well, so I'm working on it today.

Whacked with a cold, my weekend of sketchbook accomplishment did not come to fruition. All I could do yesterday was sit on the couch and hold tissues up to my nose. I couldn't do any crafts (I didn't want to touch anything...ick...), or read and barely surfed the net. I watched a smidgen of TV, but that's about it. Today is better, but now I'm way, way behind. The potential for a snow day exists on Wednesday, so I'm half keeping my fingers crossed (the downsides are that I have to shovel and that we miss a half day but have to make up a full day).

Soup is on the stove, so I'm hoping that once I have some, I'll be a bit more motivated...
