Nature is Art - Art Journal page

Last Friday, Roni, Laura and I got together to have a little crafty time.  We watched a couple drawing videos and then decided to draw poppies.  Roni and Laura then proceeded to draw/color/paint beautiful realistic poppies!!  Gorgeous poppies.  I took a different approach - 
Since my drawing skills are rudimentary at best I decided to make a "grid" and fill it with a variety of items in case I hated my poppy.  The paper I had was not conducive to watercoloring at all - See how crinkly it became!  In the end though I was pleased with my efforts and added my sketch to my ever growing art journal.  It won't be long before it is full.
Be sure and read this great post that Julie Fei-Fan Balzer wrote about art journaling!!   - Let Go of Expectations.
