Hello my lovies! Kari McKnight Holbrook popping by with some non-caloric valentine sweets! I do love love love my sketchbooks and journals. They are a place for me to spend quality time with someone I often neglect.
I keep these little sketch books really just for me, that's why all the quotes! I practice here- lately I've been sketching alot of women, and I reuse sketches and rework sketches I've done elsewhere- transferring them over, trying to make them different.
But as much as I love the sketches, I also love the words. I am constantly writing down cool things I've heard in a movie, or on the news, or that I've seen in a book, or heard in a class. I've filled notebooks with quotes I've gathered. The last year or so, I've been making these little sketchbooks, and filling with quotes on a single topic or theme. I find it really satisfying. And sometimes, I don't even care if the sketch matches the words. Sometimes it does.
I work on several wet journals at a time, painting them with busy backgrounds, then knocking them back a bit to leave resting places to write and draw. Get them to the dry point, and then, anywhere I go, all I need is a pencil, eraser, Pitt Artist Pens and a Signo Uniball White gel pen.
But what I REALLY love is that I can fill an entire journal in just a few days, even at 15 minutes a day! Have you been sweet to yourself this month? If you want to see more pages, pop over to see the rest on my blog:) Or go out and treat yourself to some chocolate and a romantic dinner! If you had been keeping romantic quotes in a journal, you could be reading them to your love over a candlelight bubble bath..lol...
