Sometimes I Just Feel Like Dancing!

This is a page from one of my art journal/sketchbooks that I thought I would share today. I don't really feel like dancing right this minute (I am still half asleep), but this sketch always makes me smile, so I thought if it makes me smile, maybe it will you too. :) The resemblence to Dolly Parton with black hair was not intentional, but it's ok. I like Dolly. I had noticed it already, but it has also been pointed out to me a couple of times. Like I said, it's ok with me. Hope Dolly doesn't mind. :)

I learned a new "to me" art journaling technique 3-4 months ago, and I've had so much fun with it that I haven't missed a day since doing at least one, sometimes 2-3 a day. I've done about 220 so far, filling up about 5 sketchbooks, several loose pastel sheets, a couple of envelopes, and a couple of cards. I never know what the sketches will end up being and they have spawned tons of ideas for painting and writing for me. I never really enjoyed drawing before, but this has sharpened my skills and my imagination and I love drawing this way. The last post also contained a quirky sketch. They aren't meant to be perfect or even "correct." Just loose and fun. I'll share the technique with you, if you like, when things settle around here a little bit. Okay?

The picture quality is not good, but you get the idea. Hope it makes you smile.

She's great and after you pointed it out I do see the resemblance to DP.

I'd love to hear more about your art journaling technique.
