Beautiful art journal girl

Had fun creating her. Very scary...drew her by hand, liked how it turned out and was so afraid to mess up when painting and going over pencil lines with black pen.

Also, found out ink comes forward even though I gesso'd and used acrylic paint on top. Happy accident covering up stencil cleanup.

Cats on roof

Inspired by a Vicky Papaioannou video. Stars are dimensional. Finished this page a while ago, took me some time to find the right quote/text.
