Art Journal Challenge: Sketch/ Draw

Well, it's begun
Ironic that I pulled the one I was the most afraid of on the first day!
Yep, Sketch/ Draw.  

Here's the deal if your just jumping in, you can find the first post here with all the details.
Day 1 and I decided GO FOR IT!!!
After all that's what this whole thing is about, 
Pushing myself to do the things I haven't been doing for a while, and enjoying every minute of it. 
I'll be honest, there was a minute (or three) of me thinking Ummmm what should I draw?
But then off I went. 

Here are a few process photos.

I just used a plain old mechanical pencil. 
Cause remember one of the rules is that I use what I already have. 

She progressed a bit, and then I added some color. 

Personal critique is that she's too orange, but I'm going to just say she's been out in the Arizona sun like ME! 

Then I added the background, and the little quote.
Pretty fitting for this first challenge if you ask me! 

Thank you for checking me out, and I hope that you are a little bit inspired!  
Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win! 
Oh, and if you want to know what products I used they were:
Mechanical Pencil, Sharpie Pen, Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks, a Stephanie Ackerman stamp from documented faith, a dotted stamp I had laying around (it doesn't have any markings left on it so not sure where it came from!) 
And of course my Imagination.  

The verse for today is John 14:6 :  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
