Green-Headed Tanager...

Hey there my friends! 

I got through all the lessons in Gina Armfield's "Daily Sketchbook" workshop, and today I started my own Sketchbook!  It's so FUN!!!  I chose a 5" x 8" Watercolor Moleskine.  It arrived today from Amazon, so I got busy right away on my first entry!

It started with a line drawing...

and here's the finished page...
I added watercolors, collage elements and a stamped title and called her done!  I decided to follow the Prompt 6ix challenge requirements for this week, which are...

1. Ocean (I used the color)
2. Brown or Sepia
3. Tea Bag (the green square)
4. Tiny Words
5. Staples

It was so much fun thinking about the challenge requirements because I wouldn't have thought to put that tea bag in there, but I love how it looks.

Prompt 6ix is a weekly challenge at the Daisy Yellow blog.  She puts up six words or phrases which are open to interpret however you want in whatever format you want.  It goes up on Tuesdays.  For more info, click here.

Thanks for visiting and have an awesome weekend!
