A couple of months ago I purchased a DVD From-Art-Journaling-to-Art-Drawing-Watercolor-and-More-Techniques-for-the-Mixed-Media-Artist-with-Jane-LaFazio. Once I sat down to watch it I was immediately inspired to draw daily sometimes more than once. This is a big deal to me as I am drawing challenge. I've never been a painter or considered myself as an artist really. I'm a self taught scrapbooker that ventured off into cardmaking and other papercrafts. I wouldn't have imagined that I would end up here...drawing and journaling my everyday life.
Jane's teaching style made me feel so at ease that I felt like I was taking a private art lesson. And I'm not getting paid to say this really. The DVD literally changed my life...
I've made my own sketchbook to put my sketches in which I'll try to share this month. I sketched this teddy bear that belongs to my two year old who has a penchant for bears. As soon as he saw this he said "Bonnie!," I used colored pencils for color and the other elements in the book were already there. I sketched over and around what was on the page to make it work for me. I'm pleased with how this sketch turned out.
I made this blog to share my sketches and other art inspirations. I hope to meet new artist and reconnect with my scrappy and papercrafting friends. For newbies that happen across this blog I hope that I can share and teach what little I know because that's how we artist get down. :)
In the meantime...be blessed and don't stress the small stuff!
