Drawings and Doodles...

I've been doing a lot of drawings and doodles in my 2014 art journal and I'm loving it.  I feel like I'm starting to find my drawing style and I'm becoming more confident in my hand drawn lettering too!  Thanks to the great inspiration from Joanne Sharpe, I'm learning some great, and manageable ways to record the highlights of my year.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words...well, I think doing these little 'dailies' and vignettes as tiny drawings is more my style than just writing!


I've had a great few days drawing my imagery with pencil and then tracing with a permanent black pen.








I'll show you these again once I get them all coloured.  I'm planning to use my Tombow markers and a water brush to get a pretty watercolour effect.  We'll see if I achieve what I'm picturing in my mind... ;o)

  2. Hi Linda
    I love your calendar journal page. How did you make it? Is it a template or did you do it freehand?

    1. Thanks Kelly. It's all drawn freehand to allow me to make it uniquely my own.
