I left a page for a cover page as she instructed and did a page of Scavenger Hunt sketches yesterday. Great start. I took it to the table to take photos of the sketches (too big to scan). As I put the book on the table I noticed a sort of stamp on the cover. Interesting, oh, it was upside down. I hadn't noticed that! I turned it over and opened it. Argh..... I had started at the back of the book and of course, upside down.
I put a little note on the sketches and will start again today with the book in the correct orientation. One of my sketching friends, Scattycat, summed it up for me:
.... and the little note that lets us know yer as daffy as me, starting sketchbooks upside down is my sorta thing, good on ya..To see some of Scatty's really neat sketches, visit our Hunts or better yet, visit her blog. Kat Van Hookens http://gardenartjournal.blogspot.com/ I especially like her sketches where she writes on them like here http://gardenartjournal.blogspot.com/2014/07/and-more-peeps-im-lovin-these.html
Her home was flooded around Christmas, so new sketches are on the Hunts. Floods and fires for our sketch group. Not good.
And my sketches to start off 2016 in Jennie's Sketchbook
Number 1, cup and saucer - substituted cup and lid
Number 2, seasonal - Gene's new trivia calendar for 2016
Number 3, something alive :-)
Number 4, teapot - I don't have one so subbing Gene's one cup coffee/tea maker
Night before last, my iPad would not power up correctly. I did not do the right restore and now I have to take it to the real Genius - Joanna - to help me fix the problem. We shall see how it goes. I have an appointment with her for tomorrow.
While I was trying to start the iPad last night, I did another sketch for the Hunt in my regular old large sketchbook with the Micron 08.
