Follow Your Bliss in the big journal

I am really enjoying Jane Davenport's "Supplies Me" online class. I even pulled out my 9x12 journal again so I could use my colored pencils. I have never really enjoyed using colored pencils because I never thought it poped enough for me but I am learning that paired with copic markers that are great. I colored the face with copic markers but then used the colored pencils to shade and enhance. I love the way Jane teaches to draw the face and the body! The body--you know I have always wanted to learn tips and tricks to do that!

I am heading up to Greenville today to spend the weekend with Baby Marc (oh yeah, with his mama and dad too!) and Macaulay's friends are giving her a little Sprinkle they call it. It's like a baby shower but since it's a second baby and it's a girl they called it a sprinkle. So I am going for the sprinkle.

Martha, I smiled immediately when I saw that you had done another of your journal pages, I don't know why but they always are so pleasing to my eyes. Your lettering of coarse is always beautiful but the overall presentation and fun things you place on your page are always awesome.
Have fun with your grandbabies and at the SPRINKLE - I LOVE that!
Hugs and blessings
Kelly

She's beautiful!!! I have a ton of Copic markers and almost never use them because they bleed through paper so badly :( I really love the PITT markers (don't bleed through) but the best colors are in the smaller size brush pens. *sigh*

Martha! I love this two page spread!
You are as always, a never ending wonder in the department of inspiring me to pick up my pencils and markers and get busy already!

I have just signed up for the SKETCHBOOK PROJECT 2012 with my hubby...we're both really excited to start filling our journals once they arrive in the mail. Have you ever done this?
