Flower Girl Colored Pencil Journal Page

I wanted to try something new so I decided to create a flower girl in my Strathmore 9″ x 12″ Colored Pencil Journal using only colored pencils and nothing else. This turned out to be quite a challenge.

I have a library of art books that I go to for reference or to simply get inspired. After a little reading I was surprised by the recommended color combinations. Truthfully, I never would have used these colors for the skin tone or hair but because of the all the layering, it turned out different than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Share the Happy!!

  1. Very pretty. I have some friends that can turn colored pencil drawings into lifelike masterpieces. Sometimes I don’t even want to try. I do love my watercolor pencils though. I can scribble and add a little water for that soft look. I guess I prefer easy over complicated. I’m a lazy artist. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

    • Thanks Toni! It took longer to finish with all the layers but it wasn’t too bad. You just have to get used different color combinations. I still prefer watercolors too, but it’s nice to switch it up a bit 😊 The owl in this one make me laugh. He reminds me of Chewbacca from Star Wars πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
