Anything but cute - Art Journal Page for Country View Challenges

Hello dear visitors, welcome to my blog!
My first project for the February Challenge over at Country View Challenges is a Art Journal page in my "Face - Book".
This month the theme is 'Anything but cute' and it was set by Christine.

 This time I don´t have pictures of the process, because I made this page while staying in hospital over Christmas last year.
I wanted to do something creative in this time, so I did some practising in drawing eyes and hands, some pages of my "Let´s face it 2017" course. If you are interested in, you can find it here.

 But back to the challenge:
For my Art Journal page for the challenge I used Gelatos to create my background. I randomly scribbled different colors on my pages and blended them with a wet paintbrush.
Then I used a charcoal pencil to draw the face - well, it is drawn askew a little bit, but I don´t mind.
Then I took a black posca pen here and there and wrote the words and 2018. For the eyes I used white posca pen and white charcoal for the accents.

Well, that´s it! I hope you like my girl!

Now grab your goodies and make something NOT cute for the challenge, you know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit and don´t miss the gorgeous makes of my talented teamies!

  9. Oh meine Liebe ich hoffe das es Dir wieder besser geht!! Die Übungen die Du gemacht hast sind großartig ganz besonders die Erste Frauen Zeichnung hat es mir angetan. Aber auch Deine Design Team Zeichnung ist eine schöne Inspiration..Ein schönes Wochenende. Xoxo Heike

  10. Malen im Krankenhaus das kenne ich auch. Hoffe du bist wieder ganz fit liebe Evelyn. Sehr schön dieses Portait das du gemacht hast,
    aber auch deine Übungs-Skizzen sehen sehr gekonnt aus. Skizzieren kommt immer vor Farbe und ist der schwierigste Part beim Malen.
    Alles Liebe und gute Gesundheit
