Since its December and the month that is all about gifts, gifts from friends and family, gifts of food, gifts from God, gifts to each other. I wanted to share some gifts I received over the years and give you some ideas for your sketchbooks. One year, I decided to sketch all the gifts I received and blog about them, I enjoyed this and these many years later I can look in that sketchbook or on my blog and it reminds me of when I received the gift and who gave it too me! Something I often forget after the year goes by. I used some graphite pencils that I had received to do some of my sketches that year which is also a great opportunity to work with value. Here are some of my gifts, maybe you can sketch some of your gifts this year and share them with us!
These aren't fancy sketches and my journaling is a bit messy but its my sketchbook, filled with wonderful gifts from friends and family and I feel so special and loved when I look back and remember! Merry Christmas to all of you and your family!
