Here's my most recent girl:
My older sister asked me what her name was...and I didn't know...I didn't know naming them was a thing.  But, I thought about it...and decided that her hair reminded me of Morticia Addams (from The Addams Family), but Morticia wouldn't wear a green sweater...  So I think she must be Wednesday all grown up and out on her own.  

Wednesday is done on canvas...the background is alcohol ink.  I used Prismacolors and acrylic paint, as well as water colors.  Her hair is scrapbook paper!  Isn't that a neat technique/idea?  My favorite thing is her mouth, because I think it makes her look saucy.  I feel like I got the highlight just how I wanted too, which is something I've been practicing.

I really need to work on taking better pictures, or at least at having a more interesting background, instead of having my paneling and paperclips showing!  Although those paperclips are both useful and colorful, so they're not too bad I guess! 


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! Art journaling is a great way to practice and develop your style- something I am still trying to do....
    p.s. Read Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon-- it will inspire you! Good luck and I look forward to seeing your creations!

  2. Thank you for visiting me back! I feel so special! I ordered the book you recommended from Amazon; it will be here Tuesday! I can't wait!
    I feel the same way as you about developing style. My sister is this super art maven (aka has most of the talent that dna gave our family) and can do anything crafty/artsy, and she tells me the same thing...her mantra to me is 'Practice, practice, PRACTICE!' And the art journal is somewhere I can do it without feeling it's just for me, and if it doesn't work out, that's ok...but I learn my lesson and can adjust next time. Thanks again for taking a look at my blog and for sharing your beautiful art on your blog!


I'd love to hear from you!
