This week I am going to share with you the pages from my ongoing sketch journal... page by page... so you can see what I've been doing :D I've been trying different techniques and it amazes me how each day my sketches have taken on a life of their own and how I've progressed with them. I haven't been happy with EVERY one BUT it's been a learning curve :-)
I started just doing practice graphite sketches BUT couldn't just leave them uncoloured... even though that is what I had planned in the beginning. So I tried out pastel pencils on this page... I found them really hard to work with so stuck with only a few colours. Definitely need to practice more with different mediums and it is fun to play so I will keep trying.
I need to discover some blending tips so I can use more colours... the paper is pretty smooth so didn't give a really good key for the pastels to cling to so maybe I will try them on a more textured paper at a later date.
Now I will be postdating the rest of the weeks posts because I will be taking part in this Free class by Jessica Sprague. If you fancy joining me you still have time and it's for every crafter whatever your latest crafty addiction is. I for one can't wait!! Hope to see you there ;-)
