My Goddess Superpowers

Life Book's First Lesson.
I'm finally sharing it with you even though I painted it last week. I used the small moleskine which doesn't have the right paper and what happened is that the paper started pealing off when I was brayering the paint on. Now I know I need to wait for layers to dry or collage something underneath.

And it's funny how I'm not really fond of water-soluble oil pastels. I love them when I'm doing the book page portraits but not so much in an art journal. So I added some of my india ink pens and here she is now.

  1. I like the india ink version, too....a bit more "soulful"...it sets a mood a bit better, I'd say.

    I had to click and read your superpowers...so true :)

  4. Yey, koja razlika! Ali, kako ćeš napraviti svoju knjigu kad slikaš u Moleskine? Mislim, nije da je to bitno...

  7. I really like working with the india ink too, and I also love your version--great depth.
    I'm waiting to see what's next on Monday to start my Life Book. I haven't done the self-portrait thingy--I have to wait until I'm in the mood for that.

  17. I like it your journal page! One would never know by looking at it, that you had problems. I like the moleskin journals too and wish they had better paper. Happy PPF!

  20. Both versions are beautiful, Natasha May. The first one is delicate and light. The second one gives the face more form and depth. Faye

  29. You did an absolutely amazing job!!! Both versions look great - I liked working with water-soluble crayons - never had used them in this way before. It was really fun. I embellished, too. :)

  33. The india ink pens are amazing, aren't they? I love that version a lot, although the first one is very beautiful as well. Her face has more expression in the second version. I like the dangling hearts.

  38. Ooh, yes, adding the shadow and detail with ink really gave her so much gravity and depth...sort of like that Spiderman motto, With great power comes great responsibility.

  39. Yes, that happens sometime, but she turned out beautiful. Have a happy & creative week!

  40. I agree about the watersoluble pastels. I don't work well with them either. Your journal page is lovely. You can chalk it up to sometime mistakes teach us a lesson. And look how beautiful your finished piece is. Happy PPF!
