I made this journal page a while back, just haven't had the chance to post it until now. This was one of my first faces I tried to draw on my own. Since then I've done some workshops and classes and when I look back at it I kinda cringe a bit. BUT don't get me wrong, I do LOVE it and the Tim Holtz sentiment I added reminds me to 'keep at it' even if you don't think you can do it!
This page was created using Gelatos and Peerless Watercolors. I took some Gelatos and added a pattern of 'dots' to one side of the page. Then I took my water bottle and spritzed up the page pretty good, shut my book, held my breath, crossed my fingers and when I opened it I got the mirror image on the other side. Fun! Then I randomly added the Peerless watercolors around the dots to make this very abstract background. I drew in my girl and painted her with some Koi Watercolors. Added the Stampers Anonymous Sentiment by Tim Holtz and used my Copic Multiliner to draw in some little daisy's and a border and left it at that!
I brought my art journal with me to CHA so I could have all my favourite designers sign it. I luckily met Mr. Tim Holtz, had a quick photo opp and got him to sign it! Very cool! He's such a doll!
How cool is that? Its like this page was made for him to sign! I love it and also love how passionate he is about his work. And he always has time for everyone - he's one awesome dude!
Well that's it for today, I have more pics to show you from CHA which will come soon, (I know, its a bit late but that's how I roll...hee hee), I will show you the page Dina Wakely painted in my art journal (squeeeeeeeeeeeel - lucky me)!!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
