Another Journal Page to Share

I am so loving this journal. I started this last night and finished it first thing this morning, before breakfast but not before coffee-lol! Nothing ever before coffee. I love the large size of this journal too. It feels good. I love working so ‘loosely’. These crayons allow you to do such quick portraits and the black lends a unique feel to the pages. I’m thinking this one will find it’s way to canvas. I just love the quote.

Embrace The Face December Challenge

Here is my submission for the ‘Embrace The Face’ challenge this month. The theme is ‘White’ and I think my journal sketch with the little white roses in her hair and white dress, fits nicely. I like this little lady so much that I made her my avatar. This was completely done using graphite pencil and Pitt Pens. I swear I think I could doodle with them all day! They are so much fun. I just ordered some new ones and can’t wait till they get here…
Pop over to the challenge and take a look, there are some beautiful faces over there! A new theme starts in January.

Just Had To Share

I just had to stop at Michael’s and use my 40% off coupon on the way home from the girlfriends annual cookie exchange this morning! I have been having so much fun playing with my new toys this afternoon, that I have to share what I bought with you. I purchased a small 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 journal a bit ago, just for traveling and to make myself work outside the normal size I use and experiment with different mediums as the pages are not watercolor paper. I saw a set of Pitt Pens that had brush tips and were in all shades of gray to black. This looked like fun. Pitt pens are awesome because you can paint over the ink without fear of bleeding. These pages are what I did with them this afternoon. I have only used the pens, graphite pencil and white gel pen. I am in love! I could even add color if I wanted to. These will be going with me on my trip for sure! I just love new toys and making myself work differently than I normally do.
