This is the Virtual Sketch Date for February. The original photo is by Debbie Later. I have been watching all the ones uploaded and they are wonderful!
My Sketch is done mainly in Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I also used some Derwent Colored Pencils. Both of these brands are very creamy. I find if I keep sharp blades in my battery operated and hand held sharpeners. I have little or no breakage. Thank-you for asking about the media. All I did to the photo was crop. It came out very well for iPhone.

Sketchbook "JOY" is here.

Please visit Janice's blog:
Her handmade journals are wonderful.   I hope everyone will be able to have one in this New Year 2009.

It is here!   All the way from Australia.  Sketchbook "JOY".    This is so much more than I expected.  It is just a beautiful book.   
I am doing sketches in my big Sketchbook and writing ideas on how to begin the Illumination of the wonderful gift.    There are many pages.  Very nice cover.  The leaves are well sewn.  
"JOY" is a joy!
