For drawing class last week, we took off a shoe and drew it with colored pencils. I altered the colors, as my shoe was black. Knew I should’a worn my chucks. I decided to incorporate the drawing into a journal page.
I recorded one of those cool time-lapse videos for the page, but about an hour of it didn’t get recorded. Poo. And it was the good hour! So, no video.
The page starts with soft pastels. Followed up with a little stencil spraying. I punched some squares from scrap paper for a border, and put a bit of gesso on them, then stamped them with a hand-carved stamp. The border is the one part of the page I really liked.
After that, pasting the shoe, and doodling mostly.
Not overjoyed with the page, but when I don’t like something, I tend to leave it as-is. It’s part of the learning process for me. My pens were frustrating me on the surface, so I ended up using things I didn’t want to use. *shrugs* It happens.
