Sketchbook sneak

Geesh, where has April gone? We've been keeping really busy with just life in general and even more so with spring time yard work. I still try to squeeze in some art time but busy times usually mean just sketching but I did get one journal page done. 
First up was done for a challenge with a group of friends using a common list of prompts:
Totally different for me, but I guess that is the true meaning of a challenge. To challenge ourselves and push our boundaries. Was a lot of fun, I must admit!
The rest are all from my sketchbook. A few sketches and a few watercolors:

I've been sketching with blue polymer leads in my mechanical pencil for awhile now and I really love it! 
Well, that's all I have for now. As always, thanks for coming by =0)

Mermie Journal Page

Working in a journal that isn't actually watercolor paper but it held up on this one pretty well.  

This is a 6x8" journal done mostly with watercolors with some Prismacolor pencils added for details. 
I might still add more details like plants or barnacles, etc. I haven't decided whether I am going to do words on this spread or not. But for me that's part of the fun of a journal. I always have pages that can be worked on when I just have a few minutes to color or doodle.
