Journal Girl......

Okay - by popular request I am sharing my "Journal Girl" here with you today! *smile*

I am on a mission to be happy with FACES so I have been practicing different ways of doing them.  I started a "faces journal" in a Dylusions Creative Journal to keep my try-sees (sp?) all in one place.  I love it!!  This is where I did this figure.

The girl's face was completely shaded to get the look she has.  There were no sketch lines , no nothing ...  I used a picture of a girl I liked and used it as a guide to where the shading should go and...   this is what I got.  NOW...   I HAVE TO PRACTICE MORE!!   cause I don't think I would be able to do this again with any more ease.   It's a process - one that I am enjoying!

For those who are interested.  The background is watercolour.  The girl was silhouetted with Gesso and then shaded in with Prisma Premier Pencils and blended with solvent and a paper stomp.  The foreground was some Dylusions ink sprays (Turquoise)  though a Donna Downey Poppies & Peonies Stencil (Mix 6) and an old Plastic Alpha Stencil - Yummy

I did this during our last ART JOURNAL DAY here in the studio.  There is another journal day THIS THURSDAY...  if you are interested in coming, contact me in the studio and I will save you a space.  Love to create with you.  Its a studio fee only ($2/hour) come and play with us.  Maybe even do a face!  *giggle*

Have a creative day!
