Blue hair and background test

I wanted to play with this background, for a mixed media project I was working on.  So what better place then my art journal.  Then I found this blue haired girl I had sketched on old book paper.  I thought she went ok, and put her in with a collaged shirt.  Finished it off with a boarder, playing with my new edge punch.

Dipping my toes…

I love pencil crayons

I have never been much of a colour-er.  Artistically anyway.  But I was watching Jess earlier this week on ustream, and felt inspired.  But I am not much of a marker girl.  I am great at doodling in my mixed media or art journal with them, but shading, blending, and 3-D? Not so much. But she and a couple of girls told me of a technique where you could use Prisma Colors and GAMSOL.  Yesterday, I made my first attempt.  The first picture is just the pencil crayons (or coloured pencils if you are not from Canada) and the second is with the GAMSOL.

Mac from Fosters

Just a little piece I was playing with, to see how much (if at all) my drawing had improved.  This is a page from my sketchbook…
