21 day fall sketch challenge

I actually had this post already planned for two weeks ago. But when I returned from my birthday celebrations in Copenhagen my dog, who was my best friend for the last eleven years, unfortunately died. Needless to say that I was heartbroken and just couldn’t do “business as usual” right away. I still miss her like crazy, but feel more at peace with everything now. I’m beyond grateful that she was part of my life. Well, actually, I believe she isn’t gone, so to me she is still part of my life. Just in a different way. 

As I’m settling back into my work – which feels like it has piled up tremendously – I thought I could use something joyful as well. And as I love fall and sketching I decided to run the fall sketch challenge – which I initially had planned for two weeks ago – starting next Monday, which is the 24th of October, 2016.

These are the topics for the 21 day fall sketch challenge:



And this is how the challenge works:

It will be fun and free. :-)

It will start on the 24th of October, 2016 and run for 21 days.

Each day has a fall-themed topic – see above – that hopefully inspires you to draw a sketch. If sketching isn’t your thing you can just as well doodle, letter, paint, use watercolor … whatever you wanna do really. As long as it gets you creating. :-)

You can participate every day – or just pick the days you like. Whichever you prefer. It’s supposed to be FUN, not pressure!

Note: The numbers in front of the topics refer to the day of the challenge – not to the DATE. So the first day of the challenge will be the 24th of October with the first theme: Apple(s)

I will post the theme for the day – and my take on the sketch – on my facebook page as well as on instagram. I hope you will join in and post your creations with the hashtag


on instagram or on facebook  – or both. :-) If you like feel free to post sketches directly on my facebook wall – so everyone can see them.
(Of course you can also post them on your private profile, but depending on your privacy settings only your friends might be able to see them.)

It will be so much fun and you will find so much inspiration by looking at what others have created.

Let’s celebrate fall! Are you in?

    Liebe Ursula,

    ich wollte Dir nur mein Mitgefühl ausdrücken, daß Dein vierbeiniger Freund Dich verlassen hat!

    Mit ist dies vor ca. vier Wochen ebenso passiert – nach 15 Jahren dicke Freundschaft.

    Ich finde es toll, daß Du Dir erstmal Zeit zu trauern genommen hast.

    Unbekannterweise viel Licht und Liebe!

    Und vielen Dank für Deine Inspirationen!

    Ich finde die Idee auch super, allerdings entsteht bei mir immer so ein Druck bei Challenges, deshalb weiß ich noch nicht genau ob ich bei allen Themen mitmacje

    • Liebe Annett,

      nein, Druck soll es auf keinen Fall machen. Such Dir einfach die Tage aus, die Dich inspirieren. Es gibt kein muss! :-)
      Und wenn Du es uns zeigen magst, dann freu ich mich. Aber wenn nicht, dann ist das auch völlig okay. Es ist wirklich nur als Inspiration gedacht, die Freude bringen soll!

      Ganz liebe Grüße,
