Forgotten Sketches – What’s in your old sketchbooks?

Do you ever thumb through an old sketchbook, giggle a little, and wonder…what was I thinking when i drew this or that?ย orย I had fun making this.ย or i’ve really improved since then, or maybe i should burn this. ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember when i found this little critter and thought, I should totally burn thisBut first I’ll color it.ย  I photographed it and colored it on with an i-phone app.ย  Sometimes i do this.ย  It relaxes me.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Now i love this little purple guy! What’s in your old sketchbooks or journals?ย  Grab a cup of tea and find something that makes you smile.ย  Pick up some colored pencils or your favorite photo editing app (I like PicsArt) and give it new life with color or shading.ย  Did it make you smile?ย  Maybe it will make us smile.ย  Even if you do decide to burn it later.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Feel free to post about it on your blog, and add a link in the comments if you’d like to share!ย  I’d give away the original, but i seriously think i burned it.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚
