Toys and Play

Hi everyone. 
Today's journal pages are for the Favorite Things challenge at  Art Journal Journey . This first one is all about supplies and some familiar tools for many of us.
I drew these in my drawing journal, added some actual paint to the brushes and the tubes of paint, and I also stamped a quote. The view is as if you are looking down on a white work space. 
These toys are some of my favorite things!
The only actual name I used is the ones on the 2 markers at the top. I used my box of  F.C. markers to draw this page along with both a black fine point pen and a white Uniball Signo pen. 

 I also finished my page for Day 4 of Creative Jumpstart that I showed you, unfinished, the other day for T.
 I had some blank space in the middle that needed filling, and I figured out what I wanted to put there to fill it in. .

Ignore the shadow of the spirals along the left edge of the page.

That's all for me. Hope your week is going well.

I want to come over to your house to play with your toys. Especially the Wicked Good Paint. 😺 I like the way you filled the white space for the Jan. 2021 page. Bee-utiful! Take care and stay dry.

So colorful and with such familiar images. I can relate to this piece!

Love both, but, LOL, if you hadn´t said "ignore" I wouldn´t even have noticed, because there is much to see and with such happy colors, too!

This is a very happy page and certainly something I love dearly! Love the journal cover too but I agree with Iris -- if you didn't say "ignore," I wouldn't have noticed -- or if I did, thought it was a technique!

Two fabulous pages Erika! I especially love your CJS page, it reveals a lot about you.
Have a great weekend,

The words "spontaneous" "experiment" and "play" are exciting :)

I absolutely LOVE your supplies. I want the Wicked Good paint. I love how you drew your supplies with such creativity and precision, too. These are truly wonderful (like the #2 pencil, etc). Such fun and so inspiring for your theme at Art Journal Journey, too.

Wow, you really DID fill the Jumpstart page in. It's filled with lots of color now. You really filled this out nicely.

Great idea. Fun drawings of your art supplies. I wish my supplies look this cool! Great CJS page too. So colorful and fun and I spy the Paris scene in your camera too - so perfect!!! Fun, fun, fun creations and post. Hugz
