SC414 Ride to Work

The Sketch Challenge on this week was a challenge for me.  It reminded me of a half shuffled deck of cards, and what do you do with that?  Shuffle it some more, so that's what I did.  Lately when we drive in to work in the morning, the sun is just coming up, and beside complaining because it's in my eyes, I do enjoy the beauty of it.  Some days it's been awesome.  It starts low as a big orange ball.  Then you see it through the trees and finally it's over the top.  Just glorious.  I am such a wannabe artist that I tried to capture it here.  The sun is made with a cork and PSX ink.  The other images are all Victorine Originals and you can find them here.  The flowers are silk from Michaels.  When they get to $1 a stem, I get some and take them all apart.  My background paper is Basic Grey and the tissue strip is Tim Holtz.


  1. For not know what to do with it you really rocked this sketch....I love the sun beaming through the trees!! Your were remembering your time here in our forests...right?? :-) Great work!! --DEB

    1. Ahh, Deb. You live in an awesome spot. We have nothing BUT good memories of the time we spent there!


  2. I thought it looked like a lovely sketch but I haven't had time to make anything yet. I agree that the low sun is no fun for driving in, but it does look spectacular and you've certainly captured that so well!
