Take the Challenge with Mou, April 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the fourth Take The Challenge of 2014!

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
 
We just returned from our sprink break. We went on a cruise to Haiti, Jamaica, and Cozumel. When we go on such family vacations, I carry a sketch book and my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils, Deluxe Waterbrush, and Essential PITT Artist pens (BLACK). The light load works best for me. In between shore excursions and general entertainment and relaxing, I sketch simple scenes around me. 
 
How do you stay creative during your vacations? Show us any project you created on the go.

And I took a quick photo around the same time to show what I mean by simple scenes. Here's my son, busy playing with his i-pod nano on our private deck.

I started with a pencil sketch.

 Next I colored the sketch with various shades of Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils.

I used the Deluxe Waterbrush to blend the colors. When dry, I added details with Essential PITT Artist pens (BLACK).

Art Journal Page with Jen Matott

 

JustBepage1

Hi creative friends!  I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released.  One of them is full of my artwork!  In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit! 

It is the second one that I've designed for  them and I'm thrilled with how it looks!  WOW!  I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit.  In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included.  So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!

Crayon Resist Sketch

IMG_9146

I have a new addiction and it's the fabulous Paper Crafter Crayons! These crayons are so highly pigmented and so strong that I love that I can press as hard as I want and it does not break inside the barrel! 

One of my favorite techniques is using the crayons as a resist medium which is what I did here.
