Rainy's Twelve JOYS of December (Challenge)

Hello everyone. . . for my December Challenge, I will use a theme of twelve things that I enjoy about this month.

I will use a 140 lb Visual Journal sketchbook and probably various media as usual.

Thanks for the challenge, Debby.

Looking forward to admiring your work, and hearing how your like the Visual Journal. 140 lb. is watercolor paper, right? Do you find it different/better than the other similar journals? Cool cover.

What size is your sketchbook Rainy? Strathmore has a challenge coming up after the new year, with the Visual Journals. You might want to check it out.

Hey I recognize that cover! I have the same book! I'll post my work from that book shortly and then we can discuss the pros/cons of the surface

I did start working on one today, but no time to finish . . . the quality of paper in this book is quite nice!! Its 140 lb wc paper and seems very much thicker than my pentalic nature sketch was!

Re: Rainy's Twelve JOYS of December (Challenge)

I'm looking forward to trying one of those journals. Everyone's getting them and I love having 140lb watercolor paper to work with. You don't need to finish your first entry in one day either, just post it when it's done. Looking forward to it!

Re: Rainy's Twelve JOYS of December (Challenge)

Thanks Jackie and Chris. . .
I realized that the pict I took with the flash last night really brightened it and washed out most of the shadows on the body and dark side of the face in the white areas. . . oh well. Sorry. They really are there.

Re: Rainy's Twelve JOYS of December (Challenge)

Ok . . . I tired to take a pict without the flash (but since its not daylight yet, I had to put it under an ott light which also washed it out some again but maybe not as much). . . AND at least its not as blurry as the first one. I really need to get better at taking pictures! Sorry.

I'm working on my #2 page since I'm behind now, but won't be able to post that until tonight after work.
