I have been sharing about my drawing and coloring faces journey for the longest time and I thought of sharing something new for a change. I made this pen case the other day and sealed it with polymer varnish yesterday. The case is made of canvas cloth and I used inktense blocks to randomly decorate the front and back part. Used a very wet brush to activate the ink thus bleeding from one color to another happened but I kind of like it. It gives off that worn out overused look that I love. Now I have a smaller pen case to use whenever I go out of the home.
Happy day everyone!
The month of May has brought so much joy to my heart. Celebrating Mother’s Day for one whole month made me appreciate my mother so much. I find myself still talking to her and telling her all my cares even though she has gone to see our Creator more than a year ago. For my last flower angel offering, I made a rose flower angel, dedicated to all Mothers who give/had given time to celebrate themselves first as a woman, an individual, a partner and as a mother. The rose symbolizes love and beauty. It may also convey respect and devotion.
Again I have used faber castell polychromos pencils to color my girl. Also, I tried a new hairstyle and a new way to color her hair. Used a blue pencil to color her eyelashes as to signify that she has blue mascara on.
Once more here are my flower angels.
Since I started doing themed projects last March, I think this is my favorite one so far. I have grown to love using colored pencils and had been taught the virtue of patience.
May Theme: Touchy Feely (Texture)
May 23 Art Challenge: Cheesecloth
Journal Prompt: Say Cheese
The only thing I got inspiration from both the art challenge and the journal prompt was the word – cheese. Maybe because we do not have cheesecloth in our home nor have we ever used one. Though I thought of using a surgical gauze to mimic the cheesecloth and color it with dylusions ink spray, I was not in the mood for that. So, I went with the easiest route and looked for inspiration over the net. I had a lot of fun layering colors of acrylic paint using a palette knife and trying my hand at sketching a cheese using 2B pencil then later on charcoal. Since I’m a fan of the worn out look, smudging the charcoal lines was a must.
