Caroline (aka Freya Fennec on Instagram) hosted a really fun August Sketchbook challenge. I used some of the pages from my season of Story journal to house the sketches I did for this challenge. It was a different approach for me and I loved putting many different sketches on the same spreads.

The fun part of this kind of challenge is pushing your work out of its regular comfort zone. In my case, it meant stepping away from my regular magazine images and honing my drawing skills. It showed me that I can sketch all right and create something interesting.

This final one was not part of the summer challenge, but I was lead to it by the need to paint and to spend time pulling the figure from the background.

Thanks Caroline for inspiring us to try something new!
