MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Paint Party Friday

As promised I'm sharing another of my large journal pages and thanks to Netty for pointing me in the right direction I am sharing with Paint Party Friday.  I seem to almost constantly have a paint brush in my hand lately so what better time to join in :-)
More Dylusions inks in the background along with a bit of acrylic paint....


and yet another face... sorry can't help it I just find drawing them and painting them soooo addictive...lol.  This time I used my Stabilo watercolour pencils on top of the background.  They are so ace... I just love them and adding them dry is amazing too.  Just like using a pencil but they write on almost any surface.  Really cool!


I went a bit mad with the watercolour shading so she ended up looking like she was wearing a wig lol... but hey there are no mistakes in art journaling right!  So I didn't worry I just carried on and it's fun to play and not have to get everything 'just'right'.



I used some funky foam as a stencil under my background to provide the white space and pattern down the side of the page...


and because the journaling is about learning to love myself and my art ... I gave myself a little red watercolour heart.  I pass it on to all of you with love.
Thanks for looking
hugs
Chris xx
