A couple week ends ago I was at Bella Connections and a class I took from Cindy Shepard - she had us drawing birds. Well I really enjoyed that and just keep drawing birds. I have to have an idea and then I see if I can do my version.
Yesterday I decided to draw an owl. I had so much fun drawing the owl and coloring it.
The October Challenge with Mou on the Faber Castell Blog is to use black chalkboard paint and an owl. A double whammy. Thanks for stretching my limited drawing skills and making me try to draw an owl. I really like how it turned out.
The canvas board has 3 layers of black chalkboard paint on it. The owl was drawn on a book page and colored with Gelatos and Inktense pencils. A Faber Castell black pen was used for outlining the parts of the owl. The owl was added to the board with gel medium. I outlined the image with a pen I had. I stamped the sentiment twice. Once on teal colored book pages and once on pink colored book pages and cut them out. I love this sentiment. After everything was adhered, I rubbed some pink distress paint along the edge and then did white splats. I really like how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't be afraid to try to draw. If I can do it so can you - or maybe I will call it whimsical doodling.
