This spread was in response to a challenge on the 'Love This Journal' Yahoo group - to draw your favourite christmas ornaments. I decided to do a page on two of the decorations made by the children a few years ago, and still carefully preserved.
Drawn with Pitt Pen in Moleskine Sketchbook with watercolour pencils, and PanPastel for the border.

Went to see a great production of 42nd Street for my birthday.
I didn't have any black acrylic or gesso on hand, so I used the kids Poster paint, not really ideal as it is not waterproof when dry and smears a lot. Had to seal it with fixative to work on it further. The neon signs were drawn with gold pilot pen and coloured with watercolour pencils.

I edited a couple of photos of winter trees in photoshop and printed them onto the Safmat. I then peeled off the backing and stuck the transparent film with the printed image into my Moleskine sketchbook. I had used a grey PanPastel on the page first, deliberately patchy, to create the dusty landscape depicted in the book.
Quite pleased with the Safmat, it is very thin and ‘almost’ invisible, so a good way of getting photos into your journal without creating too much bulk.”

First attempt at drawing with charcoal since High School (hated it then!), but I must say I quite enjoyed it today - I think I have become less timid. These studies were done for my Art and Drawing class.
Charcoal on cartridge paper.
