friday face off

    I'm behind by a day yet again with it now being Saturday, not Friday. Oh well, better late than never I guess. For this week's Friday Face Off, I did some work on my weekly journal spread which involved finishing up the giraffe sketch I did a couple of weeks back plus another portrait. This Week 24 spread is not finished yet but getting there. I'm thinking of adding a couple more portraits in the blank area.

    A close up

    Brad and I have been watching Stranger Things together. I re-watched the first 3 seasons with him because he hadn't watched them yet so we are now on Season 4. Eleven is drawn with graphite pencils. I decided to ink the giraffe sketch. I signed up to the Creativity Matters Podcast on Instagram and we receive weekly prompts for illustrating our week.

    Have a wonderful weekend! 

Love, Light and Peace

Seriously I wish we lived close. I would love to spend the day just watching you draw. Your expressions are effortless. Anyway they seem that way to me. Even on the giraffe. LOL I am so pleased that you join in with Friday Face Off. I was a day off at the beginning of the week, so I know how you feel. Have a very lovely evening.

Oh I so enjoyed Call the Midwife.

I loved Stranger Things. It is such an interesting show. I can't wait for the final 2 episodes, which I read are movie lengths each. And wow. Nice journal. You can certainly draw. I'm curious how long it takes you to do one like the giraffe There is love behind those lines for certain. Hugs-Erika

Hi Serena!! ☺ You draw so beautifully! I love the giraffe, and I love the words written. The journal you have is super, I love your ideas and art!! ♥

Rita said...

Always just love your art!
I am so far behind on Call Thew Midwife--just started season 8! About time I catch up. :)

Nicole - That's such a lovely thing to say. I wished we lived closer so we could have art days together. Call the Midwife is one of my most favourite series. Enjoy your weekend. x

Erika - Stranger Things is definitely strange but it draws you in, that's for sure. Apparently there will be a Season 5 and it will be the final season.

To be honest, I never time my drawings but I think Eleven took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half. The giraffe would have been less.

Have a lovely weekend. x

Rain - Thanks, Rain. I'm glad you like my journal pages. They're fun to put together. Have a great weekend. x

Rita - Thanks, Rita. We finished Season 11 of Call the Midwife. Such a great series. I bought all the seasons on DVD too. Enjoy your weekend. x

I am truly amazed at the work you put into this journal, and the results are so splendid. I am sure that you keep them all, and at some point this would be a wonderful gift to grandchildren, perhaps. I have never kept a journal, but I had I done so, I have no doubt it would have been quite prosaic. Your talent is clearly on display. Well done!

I'm even later than you, but I was SO impressed with the words you wrote about humane slaughter. Definitely an oxymoron and a cruel one, too.

Sorry, I looked at all your art and have no idea what or where Eleven is. I have never seen Stranger Things, but have seen both other shows you shared. And that giraffe is adorable. LOVE you IKEA table. Reminds me of their style.

Happy belated FFO.
