AJC - Day #12

I decided to broaden my horizons on using oil pastels, so I did what any curious mind would do, I went to YouTube.  I searched "using oil pastels" and lots of videos appeared.  I watched a few and then decided to apply what I learned on the above two pages.  I took out my Cray Pas Oil Pastels and began to work.   I colored, smudged and smeared the colors onto the page.  I also played with blending stumps and toothpicks.  I really enjoyed their smooth creaminess and their vibrant colors.   Blending colors was a breeze.  I give them a big thumbs up and an A+.

I just looked again and realized I did a similar page in my journal this week. I did flowers kind of like the left side of your page spread. I haven't posted it on my blog yet. I used markers to colour mine. Strange coincidence! :D
