whimsical face sketch @ creativemag.ro

Grab your pencil and sketch a face!

As I was saying in my last post, these days we might actually draw/sketch more than usual and that's a good thing for the psychic, right?! And all I can say is that I encourage you to do the same, drawing has such a relaxing effect on our minds. You can draw anything you want or simply sketch, but if you're here I suppose (and hope) you are interested in drawing whimsical faces out of your imagination! There's no better time to get started with your drawing practice, so go ahead and grab your supplies now!

I have grabbed my small B6 art journal and created a new collage spread, this time using a paper to cover the whole spread with collage.

Because this art journal has thin pages of only 80 gsm(~54lb), any collage will help build the page thickness so you can use more water if ever needed. I plan on adding more collage in this journal and play around to see different results. I prepared a stash with faces from magazines that would also go well as collaged pages in this B6 art journal.
