On September 2nd, my first marks on the page were of a cardinal sitting on the branch outside the kitchen window. He kept posing, so I kept sketching. The next morning, bunny came to visit as I was making breakfast. It's tough to sketch when other duties call - even with the timer set to 10 minutes. I knew I'd be a tad late for work. It's probably good that bunny was spooked and I wasn't able to finish!
Labor Day weather was beautiful! I went to the side garden where the horsemint, ageratum and passion flower are blooming and continued adding to this page. Love bugs and bees were everywhere!
A thunder clap sent me inside where I added the copy for the page. Multiple 10 minute snips of time helped me create a snapshot of our yard for the week.
I didn't set a timer when adding color. It was a joy just to be able to paint on this holiday!
Lettering is a useful tool to tie elements together.
