Working on a Sketch

Yikes! The Sketchbook Project deadline is nearing, and I still have some pages to fill! So I've been slowly working on a sketch that I started a while back... I'm just having fun drawing girls' faces for some reason. I love drawing the features of the face, and would you look at those lips?? Wowsers, those are some full lips!

Anyway, I've just started adding color to her. Right now, I'm using colored pencils because that is what was handy, but I'm sure some other mediums will get thrown in there too. Oh, and those lighter streaks across the drawing is sunlight streaming across my worksurface. If you haven't heard about it, check out The Sketchbook Project. There are over 28,000 people worldwide participating in this venture! That is so cool!!

Here is another little thing I did over the weekend. Tile coasters! We went over to Laura Otero's house for a craft party and made these. She was kind enough to supply all the materials! And last, but not least, here is a picture of my hubby and the kiddo just before the parade..

What a riot! Stay safe this week with all the last minute shopping out there going on...


  1. Kelly, this sketch is just full of light and not from the sunlight coming in but from her eyes... and oh, yeah, those are some pouty lips!
    Your family is so beautiful, hope you all have wonderful holidays. Take good care,

  2. Thanks Susan! I know, her lips make me smile, but they actually remind me of my good friend. She always had the best lips...

  3. I have 19 pages left for my Sketchbook Project! I'm going to be cramming!!! Beatiful tiles and cute family! Merry Christmas! :-)

  4. Kelly;
    This sketch looks like a girl I know! LOL.
    Wow, your husband is so cool to dress up to go in a parade... for some reason I would never see my hubbub dressed like that! I love it!
    Merry Christmas
