Sketchbook ~ Refreshment

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Mixing It Up 3 Comments

helllllouooo friends! {that’s one my favorite greetings, “Tigger style” {from Winnie-The-Pooh!}
 
and this is a favorite page from my sketchbook. one side is the flowers, the other a verse..

… shimmer and shine from twinkling h2o’s… love ’em.

the word of God.  one that i need to read, re-read, and remember.  Prov 11:25.  Love Him. love His wisdom. i too have big dreams.  small ones too. {and baby ones!}  i encourage you, dear readers, friends, artists… in all your dreams, too. i especially give thanks to all of you for your encouragement to me.  it’s big.  real big!

so… moving on in dreams… i had a fun time using a white crayon, which was applied as a border around the perimeter of the page below, and in the swirls of the flowers {above – first pic}, which acts as a resist to the watercolor… love that effect!

and hopefully… i will have some time to play with that technique in other fun ways in my sketchbook.  in the meantime, i’m packing my bag, bible, camera and pj’s!  off to a christian retreat and refreshment. beginning tonight through the weekend.  and i’m singing on the music team ~ one of my favorite things to do ~ sing!  i am so looking forward to it ~ to sister time. encouragement time and more.  i hope you have a wonderful weekend, and be encouraged!

Soli Deo Gloria!
