More Lettering Journal Pages


I finished these up this morning and wanted to get them uploaded before I forgot all about them šŸ˜€

Here they are below:


My Flow Journal Pages Inspired By Connie Hozvicka’s Painting Fearless Class


I have a couple more things to share with you, these are 2 journal pages I did for the 21 Secrets Playground ‘Flow with Connie Hozvicka’. The idea of this class is to paint freely and intuitively allowing your muse to play and scribble with paint and build up layers of paint.

The emphasis on this class is more about the playful process rather than the end results and I must say I really enjoyed this process very much!

Heres my 2 journal pages I painted for assignment 1:

Lettering Art Styled Journal Pages


Here are a couple of journal pages taken from my sketchbook which I have just finished off.

After playing around with paints for the past few weeks I decided I needed to take a bit of a break and ventured back into my lettering and doodling style pages which I also love to do so much.

I am a bit of a creative grasshopper who often gets bored with one style, medium or technique and I find myself constantly leaping from one art medium or technique to the next in the hopes to keep fresh and interesting.

I have a couple more pages half way done and will share them as soon as I have finished them up.

She-Devil Art


A lot of creative folks out there are addicted to doing ‘She Art’ made popular by the multitalented Christy
Tomlinson, she makes the most amazing doll art using patterned papers and awesome background techniques which are really to squee for.

While I love the whole look and concept of this type of art, I really wanted to add my own personal twist to the ‘technique’; if you can call it a technique?

This is where I came up with the idea of ‘She-Devil Art’…she is the darker sexier version of the pretty She-Art and really no…REALLY much more MEEEEEEE!

I started off with a basic doll template I found online and used that as the base for my She Devil shape, once I had the doll shape down I started doodling on the template and before I knew it a She-Devil magicked before my very eyes!

Here is an initial painted sketch of Ā the first She Devil I designed, she kinda came to life right before my eyes:

Note the whip, kinky boots, mask and basque; I was really tempted to put gold brads on there for pointy Madonna style boobs butĀ could’veĀ find any small enough brads I liked šŸ˜›

I think Red is SOOO her colouring too don’t ya fink?

Below are a couple of completed ‘She-Devil’ Art Doll Journal Pages I completed, as you can see from the picture below I decided to replace her whip with a pitchfork:

I had so much fun creating the She-Devil and cant wait to do some more!! <grins>

Doodle Face Drawings


A couple of doodle face drawings Ive been scribbling on using neocolours, I decided to go for unconventional face colours rather than get bogged down on realism, they look a little raw but I like the scratchiness of them. I might glue them into a journal page at a later date but for now Im sharing what I did:
