Happy Saturday!

Are you enjoying the Fall?  I totally am!  My favorite season full of color!  Had to get some art journaling in for this Saturday...I started back to art school (thanks to hub- :) with a sketching class and decided to journal a bit about it.  We have ALOT of homework in the way of sketching and since it is a great way to pass the time while waiting I dont mind :) Sketching is good practice so one should always be prepared!
You begin to look forward to "waiting" anywhere when you have some art supplies with you!  LOL
I used "bird lady" 2414 (new) and "scalloped lace" 2405 both from artist Roc Nicholas at Stampotique.  I colored her with my inktense pencils and water..not copics! for once :) and a white uniball pen thru some sequin waste.  I started with lots of TH distressed ink pads and water, Julie Balzer stencils, "swirl stalks" image also from Stampotique and some acyrlic paints.  I also did some colors with a couple permapaque pens..idea from Roc= love them now!
Challenges for my art journal pages:  Show and Tell Saturdays at Artists in Blogland, Art Journal everyday, Paint Party Friday and Creative Every day...theme= time!    Next the sketch over at the Unscripted Sketches blog....  I used "oh boys" #6149 (stampotique) and colored them with Copics.  I placed them on some washi tape (hoard this stuff!)  = Use it Tuesday anything goes... and did some sewing. 
Looking for some "Halloween "challenges I saw one at the "Hiding in my craft room" blog.  I used dp from the "lost and found" MME collection Halloween pad.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for looking :)

Fabulous pages, Jane! I agree with you--I don't mind waiting anytime anywhere anymore (lots of "any's"!) as long as I've got my Moleskin journal & a couple of good pens with me!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Oh my goodness I love your art journal and it is so true you look forward to times were you have to wait so you can create. Love that sentiment.
Love the Halloween card.
