Today I spent a full day putting away Christmas decorations, washing the floors and doing laundry. I was also multi-tasking as I had a journal cover brewing on my mind. I had covered a composition book with some Navy blue fabric earlier with not a clue as to what I was going to do at the time, and finally decided on a sketch of a girl and it evolved from there.
I did a quick sketch with chalk.
I quickly covered the face with a flesh tone allowing some of the background to show through.
I then painted in the eyes and lips and working in more detail. I even auditioned a silk flower that I thought that I was going to use, but then settled on doing a title.
I liked it as it was, but I also used some glitter glue to make it sparkle!
