Although most of the time I start from scratch with a new page, sometimes I find myself “browsing” old journals that never come completed. And that’s fine because we all need “art diversity” and that’s what all these journals bring to the table. They are all different with all kinds of paper types and grains. […]
I remember back when I started with art journaling, I wanted to have all the art supplies in the world before even considering creating a journal page! Of course, it’s nice to have many various art supplies, but they should not prevent you from starting with art journaling. In fact, sometimes all you need are basic materials that you probably already have, like a regular sketchbook and a simple black marker, like this one I have bought from Ikea.
This whimsical girl does not only appears to have an elongated face, but also an elongated neck. Extra-narrowed long necks were what I used to draw when I first started with art journaling, but in time my girls became more realistic. However, this girl like many others is not inspired by any photo or real people. The faces are the fruit of my imagination, that’s why…
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 don’t usually write messages in my art journals, but I should integrate that in ny daily practice. Adding words and messages is like speaking with a future self that will see the pages at a later date, probably with different eyes and meaning.
