During the Sketchbook Revival session, Julia taught us how to sketch a Blue tit bird and watercolor it. I haven't sketched birds much, but found her teaching style was very easy to follow and ended up creating a cute little bird in my sketchbook!
After the session was over, I went back and looked at my sketchbook page and decided to create a version for my dad for Father's Day. Once completed, I placed it inside a little hand made paper frame. He loved it!

Since then, I've gone back and played with the framing options in Photoshop Express. I think both of the frames below give it a really nice look as well.
Besides this class, I also completed the Sidewalk Cracks lesson with Carla Sonheim. It was also fun and such a creative idea! I definitely don't look at all those cracks in the sidewalk/street the same now. I'm always telling my husband that I need to take my camera along with me on our evening walks! If only I could remember that when we are heading out the door. ha! Once I have a few of these completed I will share them, along with the other fun things that came out of this event.

Both artists have amazing websites and classes to offer! It's definitely worth a stopping by and checking out their sites.
Hope you all are having a great weekend! Happy PPF...just a few days late. ;P
