Sketches and Ideas for GTS Round 2 (Part 1)

ohmy Oh my Oh my Oh my! Oh my gosh! That was what was going through my head when I received the email saying I made it to round 2 in Lilla's Global Talent Search! I feel so lucky, excited, shocked, scared, and giddy that I was 1 of 50 chosen among 1500 entries. The only competition I have really won, was a hula hoop contest when I was 5. This is just so much more exciting!

We had two weeks to come up with the entry for the next assignment and it was to create a Fall Activity Themed tote bag. I probably drew about 100 different sketches, but I kept coming back to the idea of Sweater Weather. That is what fall is all about, isn't it? However, the tough part for me was trying to incorporate that into a fall activity. Here are a few pages from my sketchbook:

Up next, my ideas that didn't make the cut, but I still love.
