What's in My Sketchbook?

It looks like it's becoming a usual thing for me to start my blog post with an apology ...

Again I'm sorry for my absence.  This is all caused by the tidal wave called The New iPad. The fun aspect of it is so great that I haven't been doing any sketch pages at all.  But sooner or later I knew that I have to get back to the ride. I don't want to become an iPad Junkie!  Hahaha!

Here is a sketch page which I've done a few weeks ago, but never got around to upload and share it with you.


I've tried out a new way, Dripping Paint, to create the background.  (I know .... the method is not new, but it is something that I've never tried before, hence I called it new.)


Dripping paint is a quick and easy way to have large empty area covered by color.  To make it a bit more interesting, I wrote my text on the uncovered area.  I quite like the result of it.


Perhaps of early Autumn weather or my quirky sense of beauty, I found shrinking flower a unique subject to sketch / paint as well.

The sketch is also for Paint Party Friday - hosted by Eva and Kristin.  All are welcomed!  Do join in to share and support each other!

Love how the dripped paint worked for your background. It looks really great with your writing, as though the paint was accidental. I always love the half spent flowers, can't bring myself to snip them off in the garden just because they aren't prefect any more.

Very pretty the dribbled paint affect! I want an ipad, but also know the hours I'd be immersed would be frightening!! Enjoy....I hear it's all worth it though!

Hugs Giggles
