Art Journaling - Tina the Techie




Here's a new technique I learned in my art journaling class.  I completely covered the surface of my two page spread (though I only used one side when I started drawing).  




I put down an oval for the face, and only then did I paint in the features.  Usually, I start with the eyes, as I see every artist teach.  


Next I clothed my portrait a bit, and wrote how I was feeling at the moment:
"Now that I have the Galaxy Note, I can find anything; just like the yellow pages!"

Fun idea to use the phone book pages! And you're right about the smart phones...they make things so easy!

Clever idea to use the Yellow Pages for your journaling! I like how your face turned out, too.
