Hello Beautiful People!
I admit I am a LLL - Life Long Learner! I love to take workshops, on-line classes, self-study courses, etc... - all in the spirit of getting better and better. That's one of the reasons I subscribe to Skillshare. They offer so many different types of classes! This week I'm focusing on my face drawing skills and I created a journal just for that. I used spray inks and stencils to create the cover on Bristol smooth. The March StencilClub set designed by MaryBeth helped me create a lovely background. I really dig the thick and thin lines in this design!
To assemble the journal I used discs. This method allows me to easily take the pages out and work on them flat, the journal opens flat, AND it's so easy to add pages and move them around within the journal. For years I've been using the Levenger Circa solution for my day job organization and found them to be a great solution for adding various papers/cardstock (plus the benefits I mentioned above) for journaling. Office Depot now offers a similar solution.
After the ink dried completely, I added a face and one of my favorites words to the front cover, punched holes, and added the discs to complete the journal.
Sharing a couple practice pages from the inside (I also sprayed the inside cover - both back and front).
Shout Out: Gabrielle Brickey does a great job of breaking down the face for drawing!
