Today I was watching Tiare having her pajama party at Classygirl. So it was time to get the journal out and have another paint along with her.. Only 7 pages left and this journal is full, so every opportunity to get it out is good.. So Tiare was using soft pastels and I have only ever used them for drips, never for colouring a page or background, so I have a 12 pack of colours so picked the blues.. Hmm was I happy with them? They are great for a background with lots of water, Tiare said to dab the brush so you don't get brushstrokes.. So dabbing did work much better.. I wanted to use some purple for the next layer and did not have purple in my pastels so turned to the Caran d'arche neocolour 11 crayons, I have a lovely purple in that one..
Next 3 stars out of paper ok hmm I had some dictionary pages that I had used to mop up some ink sprays with, so ripped them up into 3 stars.. Went around the edges of the stars with charcoal pencil and blended.. Little stars with the signo black pen coloured in with the white signo.. Quote is 'Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them but you always know they're there.' Going to enter this in for my Journal 52 Stars. Have a great day Sandy :)
