July 2018 BuJo

Angela Porter July 2018 BuJo Spread watermarked

Can you believe that June is nearly over? Time seems to be flying at the moment!

I’ve designed the front page for July in my BuJo, and here it is – a dangle design for the month. I felt the need to add words/phrases that epitomise July for me.

The rest of my BuJo is likely to be very plain and simple this month, and done in a Fauxdori rather than an A5 Leuchtturm as an experiment.

Imagination

A little drawing for today, including some iridescent paint.

Imagination is important. Einstein said, “Logic can take you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

My art is often imaginative, nearly always intuitive, and this is an example of both.

Monday motivation

Today has been a quiet day where I’ve spent time playing with colour and pattern. These are some of the results.

I’ve not finished added patterns to the ‘Colourful’ design. The other two I’ve left just as patterns in colour. I like both styles, though it is hard for me not to go to town with entangled embellishments!

I did do another drawing, while having some tea at the Garwnant Centre in a forest at the edge of the Brecon Beacons. It’s in a sketchbook and a bit wibbly wobbly. It was a nice place, a nice way to spend an hour or so, somewhere a bit different.

More artsy busy-ness

I’ve been busy today with artsy pursuits. These are the fruits of my labours this afternoon and evening.

Practicing hand lettering, drawing with pen on paper and colouring too. All good fun.

Your heart is a mosaic…

Angela Porter 15 June 2018 watermarked

I’m trying out ideas for making use of hand-lettered quotes with my kind of entangled art. This is today’s offering, and it’s part of my #fridayfeeling and #weekendvibes.

It’s unusual for me to leave so much white space in a drawing/illustration.

I used Towmbow Dual Brush Pens with a blender pen to colour the mosaic sections.

Hand lettering and entangled drawing

Angela Porter 14 June 2018 watermarked

This morning I finished the coloring templates for Entangled Butterflies. I do have to edit some of them, but I decided to take a break for the rest of the day and work on some ideas that flashed in my mind. These two drawings/illustrations are the result.

I like the abundance one very much. Daisies seem to be my thing at the moment. The inspire one was much better until I added shading to the banner, and then the yellow. It’s all a case of learning for the future.

Both hand drawn using a Sakura Micron PN pen, and colour added using Faber Castell Pitt Artist brush pens.

Wednesday Wisdom 13 June 2018

#wednesdaywisdom

A strange bouquet or a weird tree, with a wise quote above it. I really shouldn’t have continued to add elements to the drawing once I’d added the quote, but it is as the quote says, small steps in the right direction of learning.

It’s #wipwednesday over on the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.
