ATC oil pastels

I was away from home last weekend and found myself wanting to sketch but I hadn't brought my sketch kit. (It's been misplaced.) I came home and had an idea to make really small sketchbooks, ATC sized pages, fanfold style. That idea has worked out great because I used Canson Mi-Tientes paper. Not all mediums work well on this paper but it's thin and folds well for fanfold. I found references on Wetcanvas.

Yea, I know I broke composition rules (especially touching the sides), but this is TINY and oil pastel sticks are FAT. I never participated in ATC trades because I'm just not that prolific. It really makes you think about composition. It didn't take long to do these, but now I'm stuck for ideas. I only need 6 more to fill this little book.
