More of the Art Journal!

This page is sorta out of my comfort zone. I am NOT an artist, I can NOT draw for anything. So, for this page we were asked to draw our home & add some things around it. So, I put the pencil to the paper and put the house and then two trees, I like trees and it's a really fun page. I had more fun with this than any of the pages so far.















This picture is the sketch, we had to cover the paper w/ gesso then we put the drawling of our house down.















Then we were to add color and paint etc. I used acrylics then added water to give it some thinner flowing ability. I put it on with swirling motion to get texture. I added pp to the tree trunks, and green to the "heads". I also liked the words. I put "I will love me" Something we all may struggle with a little bit. I also put the words home on my house!

Hi, Dawn! Thanks for voicing your opinion on my blog about your favorite three photos for jewelry.

I love how your house pages look! I've barely started mine. The sketch will go up on my blog tomorrow... but I'm not to the point where I add color yet.

Looks like you're gonna pass me by, Miss Speedy! :-) That's okay ... I'm a slow crafter. But it's the perfect speed for me!

Like the swirly paint textures too.

Dawn, This is super cool! I LOVE the trees and laundry line! So creative! I don't know why you don't think you can draw. These pages are PERFECT!
