May sketch class

We had our monthly sketch class on Sunday this month since my garden tour was on our regular day. I had been playing with a macro lens on my camera and had taken some wonderful photos of the flowers in my garden. These macro shots make wonderful pages for journaling since they can be almost abstract and they fill the page with a wonderful color base for painting. I love to look at macro photography,it gives us a new perspective on something we look at everyday. The tiny details that are revealed can be amazing in themselves. Take the item this month to zoom in on something and paint some journal pages. These also meek great do ahead pages for journaling later.

Here are the pages from class, Marilyns is first then Christas double page spread followed by Penny's wonderful pansy and then my page. I added some elements to my page,lines,dots,text box etc. I think I may go in and paint the text box yellow. This is a good place to add your creative text we worked on last month!

  1. Obviously I can't type on my iPad! I meant to say these macro pages make a great colored base for journaling! I hope those who didnt make it to class will try it!

  2. It was a really fun day - beautiful day, gorgeous yard/garden. I took a couple of my photos and printed them to try another macro piece. Love all we learn every time we go to sketch class.
