March sketch challenge


This is completely out of my comfort zone…..and was most definitely a challenge for me.  This month on Limor Webber’s Facebook page, Limor 1278 Mixed Media Art Group, her challenge for us this month was to follow the colors in this months Lindy’s Stamp Gang color challenge found here and we were to sketch something……anything at all.  It’s one thing for me to draw out a simple flower…..but I decided if it was a challenge then I would challenge myself to follow Limor’s lead and sketch a face with one of my Sketch Sticks.  GULP!!!  I don’t hate her…..not sure that I love her……but I have to say I actually enjoyed the process!  I’d like to try more faces and I liked the charcoal pencil sketch on the colored background as I didn’t have to worry about face tones and shadows too much.  It’s a very loose sketch which I found lent itself quite nicely to my newbie skills….lol.  Here’s what I came up with…


The colors I used from my Lindy’s stash were:  My Mojito Green, Hibiscus Rose, and Caribbean Blue.

That’s it… to add this to the challenge album and page.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by.  I do so appreciate it.



About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
