September Art Plans: LSNE, 29 Faces and Facing the Facts Class

It's September, and I'm starting a new art project, which brings together several different online classes and memes. I'm making an art journal featuring faces and journaling about things I am learning each day in September.  The journal is for the Shimelle class "Learn Something New Everyday." I'm learning how to draw and paint a certain style of face from the Dina Wakley class "Facing the Facts." As an extra bit of serendipity, Ayala Art is hosting 29 Faces in September, so I'll be linking up there as well!
Although I'm making this art journal for LSNE, I'm also snapping pictures on instagram as I go through the day of things that might be the basis for the lesson I incorporate in my journal.  For September 1, I took this picture off my deck the first thing in the morning:
The lesson I jotted down was "A breath of fresh air is a great way to start the day." Although there were other possible contenders, I really liked the feel of this lesson to start September. If you want to follow my LSNE posts on instagram, my user name is rinda1961, and I'm using #lsned to flag the posts. Although I'm "private," on instagram, just ask and I'll approve our follow request.  I'll probably also feature my instagram photos here on my blog as well, when appropriate.
Are you doing Learn Something New Everyday? If so, what format are you using? Anyone else doing 29 faces? If so, let me know in the comments, and I'll follow you. Also, let me know if you're posting in instagram, and I'll add you to my feed.
Happy September everyone!

I loved seeing your first couple of entries pop up over on IG - I think I've said I'm a no go for this one in 2013 .. loving seeing everyone else's though!

No LSNED here. I keep taking photos to post on Instagram, but just don't remember to do it. Haven't figured out the hashtag system when I'm not doing it for a specific challenge. I need to get back over there and check everyone out again.

I'm doing LSNED but just taking a photo a day on Instagram and making notes in my notebook. I intend to then create something (!) at the end of September. Like your first photo and lesson :)

Love the sketch and that photo does show a wonderful "scape" to see at the start of the day.

I'm doing LSNED in a little Moleskine notebook. I picked up a 2 pack at Target and am using one for LSNED and one for 30 Days of Lists

What a great way to start the morning. Your face drawing reminds me of Clara. Sounds like you will have a busy September. Have fun cousin.

I totally agree with your breath of fresh air. I think that's what I love most about the crisp freshness of autumn mornings round here

I think you've got a perfect combination of classes to work with this September. I'm using 12x12 divided page protectors for LSNED & posted my first lessons today.
