2 more drawings

My dh says I am getting better. I know I am enjoying it at least.

My drawings

Here are a couple of drawings I drew last night. All in all I was quite pleased with how they turned out. I will probably use them in my art journal.

I got a Stratmore art pad at Micheals yesterday and got another one of equal value for a penny. Isn't that awesome. More art journal pages to come soon.

My first art Journal page

The white at the top of my page is unintended. I had got black on it from the following page and have not fixed it  yet. Other than that I am very pleased with how it turned out. I worked on some more back grounds today and my son and grandon and I painted a big piece of paper and punched out some flowers and butterflies for future use. I tried a new technique today that I think I saw journal Artista do, I blended a background page with a diaper wipe and used the paint on it t creat a new page. It came out nice.

art journaling

Well I have started a new venture in my crafting world. Up till now I had only done some background pages,
but today I actually started making a page. I need to take a picture of it to upload, but I cut out some houses out of a book I had torn apart ( for shame) and I painted them with gesso and then I water colored them. I did some stich marks around them. I titled it Our House and then wrote in the middle of the street. I am going to either add a street that I find in a magazine or draw one to the page. I am really likeing this new venture so far!
