Blue Girly

Hello all,

Here today to share a journal page I created to practice my face drawing.

So here is the finished page:

I started by sketching her out in pencil:

Then used Paperartsy Fresco paints to colour her:

I used Buff, Snowflake, Irish Cream, Toffee, French Roast, Blush and Rose paints. Then added black and white pen to her also.

Next onto the background, for this I added Southern Skies and South Pacific Frescos using a baby wipe. Then did some stamping using some Clare Lloyd stamps with white pigment ink.

Finally I doodled the quote around her - in case you can't read my scrawl it says 'When it rains look for rainbows. When it's dark look for stars.'

I'd like to link my face up at Kim Dellow's blog HERE and also over HERE at Paint Party Friday :)

Thanks for looking,

Claire x
