Sketchbook Saturday

I spent a happy afternoon, and perhaps way too much time, sitting in front of a pile of garlic heads.
I wanted to try out my Inktense Pencils, and I reached out here with a bit of collage in the middle of the garlic head with the roots: some handmade paper I found, plastered on with Gel Medium and then scribbled on. Some of the pencil, especially the shadows, were either regular PrismaColor or Turquoise plain old graphite pencils (both not water-soluble, unlike the Inkense Pencils).
Here's my result:
Garlic atop a striped placemat.
I could totally dis' this and tell you everything that's wrong with it, but I'm a better person now ... and "I'm good enough, strong enough, wise enough, and People love me."
Hugs, and have fun creating, whatever medium, art form, food inspiration, home decor or anything else you're up to. Tell me about it all!!! If you comment, we can, like, interact and stuff!

I came here from Tina's Creative Side. I absolutely LOVE the gray, black, white, and multi-color quilt!
You might enjoy my sister's blog, Doodling in my Mind. (Darla Royal) She is a watercolor artist. Lately she's doing a small "painting a day".
The garlic reminded me because she just got red and white onions out of my mother's garden that she intends to paint! (Well, she won't paint the onions themselves, but will use them as a subject!)
