be open to whatever comes next

I actually started a different project tonight but needed to let it dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step. 

I tested the technique last night in my art journal and decided to do a canvas tonight. I’m going to work on it tomorrow once all the matte medium is completely dried. For tonight though, I made this. 

It started out as a rather ugly colour but had some lovely texture to it. I covered it in Golden gesso and added some bright pink and neon yellow Pebeo paint over top. Then I sprayed black Dylusion ink over top. 

The doodles were done with my Pitt pen and the sentiment is a Tom Holtz small talk sticker. 

I like this one. Full of potential and perhaps pointing to what may come. 

Sketching in Pen

Tonight’s page was done in ink. It’s a challenge to try make something you can’t go back and correct.

Pink Doodle Flowers Art Journal Page

Here is the link to today’s art. 

I did this on top of a page that had extra paint on it. The pink background was leftover paint from a few weeks back and the big white spots were from another day. 

The small spots are actually my fingerprints. 

I doodled the flowers tonight using my Tombow and Kuretake pens. 

I definitely like the results!

Rage Doll Girl in Pink

Here is the link to today’s art.  

 I did a bigger version of the Rag Doll Girl in pink. She was outlined with the Tombow pen and entirely coloured in with pencil crayons.  

 I think she turned out pretty cute! 


Derwent Inktense Journal Page

I love getting new art supplies. And new books, but that’s another post. It’s like Christmas. Today I finally got my order from the beginning of February from Simon Says Stamp (don’t ask, it was a huge debacle, thanks Canada Post). I bought these as part of my order.  

 Cue heavy breathing 

So, needless to say, I was very excited to create something tonight.  

I used a ton of the Inktense colours to make this rainbow background. Then I doodled.  

A lot of doodling using my Faber-Castell Pitt pens and my medium Elegant Writer pen. 

 It’s just a little page (5.5″x8.5″) but it makes a big impact. 

Blue Girl Materials

Today was fun. I wanted to use watercolours and the elegant writer pens again and wanted to try them with a girl. I wanted to make her hair to be blowing in the wind and see what kind of textures is get with the pencils and pens. And lots and lots of water.

I’d like to think this is who I might be on the inside. Bright, colourful, and sparkling. It doesn’t come out often but I think this is who I am when I create art.
