This week's Every Inchie Monday Challenge is "Oak." I was inspired by Michele Beauchamp's Oke pattern for my inchie. I drew my leaves a little more curly and added some Diva Dance in the background. I had done several studies and liked how this one turned out. I think it was the Diva Dance pattern in the background that makes the oak leaves look so happy.

This is my first time participating in Joey's Inside My Sketchbook Link Up for Friday. I decided to show a ZIA drawing that I've been working on since before Christmas. I would work on it a little bit at a time.I finally was able to finish it this week. It has been interesting watching it evolve over several months.
