Folding Journals (continued)

Today we went to The Gardens at Wyckoff to sketch instead of going to the pool because it was cool this morning.  After packing up pencils, pens, and watercolor pencils for each of us, I forgot to pack my watercolors, so I did my (top three images) sketches with the kiddie Prang set I brought along.  Jadyn sketched several roses and used watercolor pencil and graphite.  And she sketched herself at Central Park from a photo.(bottom two images).

Grandkids Week 1 - New Folding Journals

 My granddaughter, Jadyn, is here for a week, and we made folding, "meandering" journals per Cathy Johnson's video, made covers for them, and these are some of the sketches I've done so far.  They show some fiber art that we did the first day she was here, our trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, relaxing the next day after all the walking we did in NYC, and Jadyn making me a necklace that resembled one we saw at the museum gift shop.  Hope to do more sketches today.
