.....................................................................................................................
It has been sooooooo long since I actually sat down and created a portrait and yesterday I thought "shake off the doubts and go for it".
So sketched out this lady and then coloured her with my copic markers. To be fair she is not one of the best I have done, BUT she makes me happy because I did it....the only way to improve on our art is to practise, practise, practise and she has kick started my desire to do more.



I don't know about you but does a blank sketchbook intimidate you? It does me so I got some paints out and created the 1st stages for some journal pages, I thought I would share them with you..





Now all I have to do is get journalling lol... I will post pictures of the spreads as they develop.

Wherever you are take care and have a lovely day and if you are affected by the crazy weather BE CAREFUL AND STAY SAFE
Thanks for visiting

I'm so glad that you're planning on playing everyday (she looks good to me!!) And journaling is new to me, and that is the bad part for me--starting a page--once I get into it, I love it!! I hope to see how you continue these.

Oh gosh Dawn i hate being the first one cause they never win. But you and I have something in common I love Betty Boop and I am just getting back into the swing of things also. But your picture turned out wonderful I think...congratulations for jumping right in. I would be proud to put her in my home. Take care.

Hi Dawn,

I received help from another blogger about keeping a post at the top of the page. This is what Dawn (yes, another Dawn) told me to do:
************************************
Okay to keep your post at the top:-
Go to edit posts - you will see just underneath your post "Post Options" (in blue) - click on it then amend the post date to whichever date you want it to stay there - mine is there until 11/2/09 at 6 pm - then click publish and it will stay there!!!
************************************
It worked for me, but I know Blogger has made some changes since then. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Hugz......
