A quick little catch up on my ten minutes play time projects.
This week, it's more journal play.
I've only got as far as a background on this page, but the more I look at it the more I like it. I know (I can hear Dina Wakley over my shoulder....) "Don't get attached to your background, it's just a background!". But the honest fact is I do, and sometime they just stay like that and I do nothing more with them for a very long time.
This page has been done super quick with color wash spray and oil pastels, then sealed.
I wasn't sure how the oils would sit over the color wash. I was worried about them smearing, but it was all good in the end. I've probably banged on about these Sennelier oil pastels before, but I adore them. I really should play with them more. They are the best, like little stick of butter. Worth every penny in my humble opinion.
Next a quick sketch on another page.
If I'm honest I'm not sure I should share this. It's been a while since I drew a face. Please forgive me. I clearly need to get back into the habit. Although that makes me sound like I was once someone who was more than half good at it...ha ha, I wish, but I have a go.
This was on a background of mop ups already in my journal, so all I've done is add some extra stencilling using 6x6 Circle Explosion Crafters Workshop stencil. I do love circles!
That's it, my ten minutes sessions from the last week. Now I need to round up the kids and drag them out, hopefully for more than ten minutes for they can burn off some energy. That way I may get another ten minutes later. I think this face could be my "thing" to work on this week.
And don't forget to share your ten minutes with me. I'd love to see.
