It's a trompe l'oeil spread! We were prompted to draw a composition notebook within our journal and make it look dimensional. And we're filling it in "old school" style. Remember having to put title, subject,date and name at the top of every paper we handed in? I even wrote out my first day in old elementary school cursive.LOVE this! Linking to Kate Crane's Calendar Challenge , Paint Party Friday, and Art Journal Every Day.
For T Stands for Tuesday with Bleubeard and Elizabeth I'm sharing the paper and a mug of coffee outdoors:
Of course I did some cooking too:
I'm linking my summer themed photos here to Inspiration Avenue (theme of "Summer's Bounty").
And here are two pages I did for the Draw Your Awesome Life class:
I actually kept putting off this lesson on contours and shadow effects because I didn't think I'd like it or be able to do it-wrong! I really enjoyed this lesson! First we had to crumple a piece of paper and draw the outlines of it by looking at it. Same with a piece of fabric. It was drawn with a water based marker and then depth and shadows were made by using a wet brush over the lines. Next week I'll share my pages from Lesson 7 - my painty coffee mug.
Thanks so much for stopping by.I'll be popping in to see you too while having my morning cuppa:)
