Remember This – Week 39

Life Book week 32 was an assignment from Micki Wilde. I had never drawn one of her girls before and I think I need a lot more practice but I still like what I ended up with. She’s giving love out to everyone.

It says: give all of you and ask for nothing in return.

I will say, I believe this wholeheartedly.

Today I Know - Week 39

This week’s inspiration also comes from Sketchbook Skool. Another assignment about drawing fast and slow. I drew with orange paint fast and then went over it with pen. I used watercolors on this page. I am not loving it but here we are.

Remember This – Week 38

Life Book week 31 was an assignment from Mika Diaz. It was about using tracing paper to transfer a drawing into your art journal.

I had a lot of layers and fun with mine and used all my My mind’s Eye products to make a fun background with shiny layers coming from within.

It says: you can choose peace.

Today I Know – Week 38

This week’s inspiration comes from Sketchbook Skool. I was taking one of their classes and the assignment was to draw a self portrait. Apparently it doesn’t look like me but alas, i tried. I used pencil and pastels on this page. I am not sure if I like it….

Remember This – Week 37

Life Book week 30 was an assignment from Carissa Paige. It was about doing transfers and since I don’t like those I decided to do rubons instead. I just had fun with this one.

I put some patterned paper down, colored over it and then colored over the whole thing once more. Some lovely rubons and i was done. The journaling says: Life is ephemeral. Capture it. Savor it. Soak it in. Live it.

Today I Know – Week 37

This week’s inspiration comes from this pin. I used pastels, stickles and pen on this page. I appear to be addicted to stickles lately.

prompt says: today i know that i am stuck in the rut of….

Remember This - Week 36

Life Book week 26 was a bonus from Kate Thompson and week 29 was a bonus from Marieke Blokland and I decided to combine both. I used fun, florescent colors for my background. These were the high flows and they didn’t behave the way I expected but I just went with it.

Then I grew the girl per Kate’s lesson. Though hers was much better, of course.

And finally I wrote “Keep Trying” because I was frustrated with my lack of enough talent to create something I visualize the way I visualize it.

And then I journaled all over.

Remember This - Week 35

Life Book week 28 was back to an assignment from Tam. It was about drawing an eye. This one is almost a copy of the art she made for the week. And i do love it so.

It’s all made with acrylics, pens, watersoluble crayons and some sprays.

I do wish I’d written one big message on the page. Eh, we live we learn.
