Misty Mawn and The Sketchbook Challenge

I'm so excited to be taking an on-line workshop with Misty Mawn!!! It's called Stretching Within (great title). I took a full-day workshop with her at ArtFest in 2008 and wish I was able to take another class. I'm really excited!!!! It is 5 weeks long beginning in January. Check out her blog here for more information!!

In addition to Misty Mawn's workshop, I just found The Sketchbook Challenge!! It is being sponsored by Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazine - what could be better!?! You can follow along with some really amazing artists as they work in their sketchbooks with monthly themes and they want people to also post their sketchbook pages. I really want to start sketching and practice and this will be a great way to get started. Check out the blog site here.

I'm still playing with my 3-ring notebook cover that I made using Lyric Kinard's process. At the moment, I can't remember which QA Magazine it was in. I think I will make book covers for my nieces for x-mas with funky designs all over. We will see how much time is available. Check out Misty's workshop!!!
