Good morning my lovelies, after a busy few weeks a work and a poorly eye I'm playing catch up with Journal 52. This is my page for week 4 where Chelle's prompt was 'Building Character'
Now this was a very scary one for me as I don't draw but I set to and sketched the face and then left it for a few weeks. She kind of lurked in my craft room glaring at me with her pale face crying out for some colour but I didn't know where to start lol.
Anyway inspiration is never far away in blogland and I came across a fabulous video on the Paper Artsy Blog (check it out here, Clare Lloyd's tut is fab!!) I didn't want to use acrylics for my page so I used the same techniques from the tutorial but used my PanPastels (not as scary as paint ha ha) and Colorsoft pencisl to colour her in. Lastly I gave her a choker of lots of different problems and worries - they all build character lol. Around the edge I use a Graph'It shake pen in white to write 'This too will pass' here and there, its alright all this character building but we all need a break now and then lol.
I'm entering my journal page in the following challenges:Crafty Creations: keep it simple
Little Red Wagon: papercraft project but not a card
Try it on Tuesday: Hand made
Well Monday morning is here again so I'd better go and earn some pennies, have a good day and thanks for popping by today
