More Sketchbook Project Pages...

Jen's Headshot4
I shared some of my pages from the 2012 Sketchbook Project that I completed and mailed out last week! I thought I'd share the rest of my pages here since I used the new colored Gelatos, PITT® Artist pens, and Big Brush Stamper's Pen in Black. I'm so thrilled with the new colors! They are gorgeous!

Here are the sampling of the rest of the pages in my "Writing on the Wall" book:

The cover of my book... Lots of Gelato drippy goodness!


Good vs. Evil... a template made from my youngest son's photograph. I used Gelato sprays that I made through dotted templates and stamped with red and black Stamper's Big Brush Markers. I outlined the profile with the PITT ® Artist Pens.201214

I like those new colors A LOT!!! New Gelato colors used through a circle template!
More circles with some of the previously released colors! Love the metallics mixed with the other colors. YUM! I had so much fun creating this journal and can't wait to see who picks it up to view at the Brooklyn Art Library in a few months! Thanks for letting me share my art!
