Cherry Tree and the Traveling Sketchbook Project ~ This is a 6 x 6 inch painting in acrylics on a stretched canvas and ugh that glare, I just noticed it but at least the colors look ok, better than the first pictures I tried to get of this one.

Check out Kate's Corner and her awsome idea for the traveling sketchbook! I hope I did this right, since this is a new kind of project for me... here's my first page, acrylics, glitter dust, and butterfly stickers on semi-translucent yupo paper, that I mailed to Karen who writes the blog Beelieve and she's the person who is on my list! This is going to be fun!

Love this cherry tree. It looks a little different from your usual work and I like it.

Lynette, forgive me for not getting here sooner but I have surfaced to this project. I believe I warned Kate that things would not take off until after kindergarten graduation. So...your pages are beautiful and I have no clue what I am doing either but think it will be a fantastic book. I am loving what I am seeing all around and enjoying your blog! (now back to some art and away from the computer for a bit!)
