The Sketchbook Project 2011

"Live A Storybook Life"
By Missy Trent
The Sketchbook Project 2011

I've been stuck creatively.
I just was not satisfied with the pages of my sketchbook project. They didn't seem like "my style". I came up with these drawings, using only a sepia colored pencil. I actually planned on adding color...and, I may still do so. What do YOU think?
Maybe just choose a few colors? Pink for her cheeks?
And...the big question now is, should I do my entire book in sepia, giving it a vintage feel?
I welcome any suggestions!
Well, today I will delete my blog, "In A Shabby Kind Of Way". It seems scary for some odd reason. I have blogged for years and that blog was my comfort zone throughout many difficult times. Time to let go.
For those of you you followed me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Joyce F. won the blog giveaway painting and I hope that by now she has the mermaid in her home!
I shall continue on with my sketchbook project!

All things Magical...

It's not easy adjusting to a new lifestyle and new routine. Unpacking years of collected belongings has consumed me, leaving very little time for art...but I'm getting there! I have been working on my "Sketchbook Project" some and will be posting more photos soon. I must confess, the weather has been beautiful here, so I do want to enjoy as much outdoors as I can before the cold Winter sets in.
Of course, I did attend the annual Maryland Renaissance Festival last month and it was just as magical as the first time that I went! I always feel right at home here with the gypsies, queens, knights and Kings! Thought I'd share a few photos of this year's event since I haven't any art to show & tell about.
This weekend I'm off to Virginia Beach for some more sight seeing and inspiration and I will be packing art bag!
Bear with me as I ease back into the blogging routine, please!
Wishing you all a magical weekend!
