Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

A few sketches...

I find myself struggling slightly with this week's Diva's Challenge. Cadent and I just don't see eye-to-eye! Something about me and anything geometric. When I try to do it in a looser form I get even more lost! But here is my simple rendition. Actually, it's unfinished, but this is all there will be, hee, hee.

P.S.-Here's my second attempt. I decided to give it another try after seeing so many fantastic examples on other people's blogs!

Not the greatest, but I'm overcoming my cadentphobia! :D
The image of a little miniature nature vignette floated through my brain, so I jotted down two little framed sketches. I may play with this idea some more. It's fun to draw something small and quick.

I'm getting close to the end of this sketchbook so I may go back and fill in all the white space with some small drawings.

I also wanted to show you the ATC that Jane from JB's Bits 'n' Bobz sent me for the 3rd Anniversary of the What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop!

It's so very British! Even the air mail envelope with the Queen Elizabeth stamp is a keepsake for a plain old American like myself! Thanks, Jane! :D

Have a great day and shalom!


  1. You're so good, Lisa! I love your tiny nature drawings best of all!

  2. Hi Lisa, Your pen and ink, zen-tangles and journal pages are out-standing. I am now following two of your lovely blogs. You have a marvelous talent! Thanks for stopping by and viewing my aprons. I thought that hanging them on the clothesline would be a good way to photograph them. Have a wonderful weekend, Connie :)


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
