getting to what is


in order to get from "what was".....



to "what will be".....



you must first go through "what is".



i hope you have a great weekend of "what is-ing"!  :))


{this was created in my walls notebook using derwent inktense pencils,
pan pastel, white uniball signo gel pen, 6B pencil}

Lori, I am curious to know? Is the paper in this journal glossy? If it is, how does the pan pastel work on the paper. We don't get them here in SA but I just wanted to know.
As usual I love your work, one day when the book is finished ... it could be published again... just to show people how awesome it can look when it is finished :o)

hi caryl! the paper in the walls notebook isn't glossy, but it does have a "sheen" to it. pan pastel works quite well with it, whereas, watercolor doesn't work well at all! it has taken me a long time to figure out how much water i can get away with putting on the paper.....usually it's just enough to activate the watercolor pencil, and that's it! i think that the book was probably intended to be used with markers and pencils, but it's fun to see how far you can take it with other supplies too! have a great weekend! :))

This journal with the blank walls and doors and windows certainly is fun for your art. I am "what-is-ing" with chocolate. Mr. C and I are re-doing some landscaping irrigation and plantings. What was to what-will-be to what is certainly fits us right now. Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts Dear...

you are so darned clever. I have that Walls book and I never seem to be able to think of things like this!

Definitely suits this weekend and next weekend too Our 'what was' is being a house of three until yesterday when our daughter left home and we will go through 'what is' this week until Friday when our 'will be' will be our daughter getting married and we will be back to just the two of us lol
Happy weekend to you
