I recently became aware of Art Journaling. After watching how to videos and seeing some pages other people have created. I decided I wanted to give it a try as well. Here is one of my first pages. I found a large hardcover book at Goodwill and decided it would work well as an Art Journal. I Gesso'ed the pages before I applied the oil pastels (Crayola Portfolio Water Soluable Oil Pastels to be specific). Then I sprayed some ink, stamped, adhered torn bits of tissue paper, magazine pages and a pattern for making clothes. I then added more paint, doodled and glued whatever I wanted to the pages. Finally I stamped the text and VIOLA! I had so much fun playing with color :)
Thanks for looking

I was flipping through my old drawings yesterday and I saw a lot of improvement in my artwork. The faces have more symmetry and the shading is getting better. I can also see the areas I need to work on. Specifically....hair. Oh the hair! I have read and downloaded every tutorial I can find on the subject and still cannot wrap my brain around it. Maybe I need some reference photos. I will draw on and eventually it will get better (I hope). Until then I will just enjoy the process and keep practicing.Here is my latest drawing:
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you are having a fantastic day :D

Hello. I hope everyone is having a great Friday. Just thought I would post my latest drawing. I did this one last night while watching Project Runway. I love that show! Try not to notice the uneven eyes on this. Harder to do that when it's being pointed out to you huh? LOL. Thanks for stopping by.
