So with the distant hope that this journal will be completed upon the New Year, I'll share a few more pages I managed to complete. As a reminder: this journal is inspired by prompts found at the Joggles Blog.
Don't Cry: Week 45: Incorporate a face onto the page. I was super excited to see Face Stencils released by Joggles. I held off ordering them, knowing I had soooo many stencils. But honestly, I think I'll use these a lot. As I've mentioned I'm not confident in my drawing skills, at least, not at drawing anything realistic. And Faces scare me. I've watched tutorials. I've practiced. I'm sure I'm too critical of myself but Faces aren't something I can "fudge" well. Anyway, I used the stencils here. As I was tearing out "petals" of paper for her hair/crown, two songs played in my headphones. The connection just had to become part of the page. I added lyrics of both to the background. In green ink, "Don't Cry" by Seal and in blue ink, "The Crying Game" by Boy George.
I've got a start on a couple more pages. Cross your fingers that this journal will get finished for 2016!
