Strathmore Sketchbook Flip

I’ve filled my mixed media Strathmore sketchbook and thought I’d share a flip of its insides with you.

  • Media used includes a whole bunch of stuff including
  • Indian ink
  • Faber-Castell Gelatos
  • watercolors of different brands
  • Prismacolor colored pencils, markers and water-soluble pencils
  • Sharpies
  • Sakura Gelly Roll pens
  • cheap acrylics
  • charcoal in black and white
  • and some other stuff I’m probably forgetting 8D

Ruby and Scarlett

These ladies are a sketchbook study in ways to portray glitter. On the left, I used Prismacolor markers, white Indian ink, Prismacolor pencils, a colorless blender and watercolor. On the right, I just dumped actual glitter all over her! BAHAHA. Their faces turned out very similar but not quite the same, so I call them the red glitter sisters Ruby and Scarlett. ❤

Sketchbook Studies

These are some recent pages from my sketchbook: attempts to comprehend sheer fabric, lace, the anatomy of a face. I screwed the first woman’s face up and decided to save her lovely dress by dumping glitter on her head in the shape of a drizzling cloud. I don’t know.glitterface study study

Last but not least is this cute little guy: a poison dart frog who’ll make his way into some greeting cards and planner inserts soon. ❤poison dart frog
