The rest of Milliande's prompts - days 20 to 24

Hello from a very wet Cornwall today!  I am so pleased to say that I have finished all of Milliande's Art Journal January :-D  You can see that I have started to attack magazines for lettering & am using a lot of colour now. So here are the rest of my pages...

Day 20 ...My Front Door.  Well this isn't my front door but I have always wanted a barn door! Preferably attached to a cottage haha I used acrylics & wax for this one. 


Day 21...Bluebells.  I was going to go for snowdrops because they are easier to draw but then I thought that as this is supposed to be challenging I should attempt the bluebells & not be a chicken!  I so feel that there should be something opposite them tho...that big gap is bothering me still!


Day 22...A day in my Life.  I spent an age on this one.  You can see that I made a feeble attempt to draw myself from my avatar pic above hahaha!  I am thinking now that I need to get some 'face' colours!!!  I used the lovely Derwent Coloursoft pencils for my picture...the rest is watered down acrylics.  I threw rock salt at the wet acrylic and when it was nearly dry I used the heat gun.  Makes a lovely nobbly effect beacause some of the salt melts!!!


Day 23...My Favourite Poem.  this speaks for itself really hahaha!  Wax crayons for this one.


Day 24...Circles.  I nearly went blind drawing all the little circles hahahaha!  I used Inktense pencils for this one.


So there you are...all done!!!!  I have certainly learnt a lot from doing this.  So if you fancy a go (the prompts are up permenantly) go for it!  Don't be scared...remember that if you don't like a  page you can just bin it & start again!  Thank you for looking today my lovelies, HUGS XXX

Ooh He's called the hidden paw! I love TS Elliot's Cat poems, they are brilliant and so are your pages, you have really progressed. I think your self portrait is really good, I did recognise you right away.

p.s. the tissue thing... I sort of roll it into a tube and then fold it over to get an edge (does that make sense..lol) it's a lot less forgiving than a tortillion

WOW & wow your journaling pages are fantastic! love them all. I can see I have been missing some great work.

Unusual that Cornwall has grey wet weather when in the NW it lovely and warm with the sun still shining at almost 5pm
