Sketchbook 3|Week 2

Today I'm sharing the layouts I made for week 2 of Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 3. I can't believe today is the last day of the class! I will miss getting sketches and inspiration in my email inbox.

Since the layout is about how my nephew wanted to go around and around the block on his bike, I had fun creating a circle as the base of the page and then I also journaled along the circle.

JOURNALING| On a beautiful April day, we got out your bike. We went around and around the block. I got a workout trying to keep up. Yay! for warm days. {2010}

I had fun using red and yellow on this page. It brought out the colors in the photo really nicely. I was surprised I had never created a page about my favorite foods at the State Fair. Such an important topic!

JOURNALING| I've been going to the State Fair for many, many years now. The food is by far the best part. The minute we're on fair soil, we have a Pronto Pup in our hands. I also love the big bucket of fries. Sweet Martha's cookies are divine. The real lemonade is thirst quenching. A recent fave is the wine tasting.

I love how bright and cheery this page is. I'm obsessed with yellow lately. I had fun creating a little sun. I love going to Millennium Park on a hot summer day. My niece was tentative at first, just wanting to walk through the water, but by the end she had dipped her head in it.

JOURNALING| Hello riding the L train. Hello walking in the water. Hello running in the water. Hello putting your head in the water. Hello watching your brother go under the spout and getting soaked. Maybe next time. {July 2009}

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
