The Black and White Journal Course

  I've been working through my sketchbook using projects from the Black and White Journal course. Here's what I've done so far....

  We used the quote "Transcend the Limits" as inspiration for a page.

  We learnt how to carve stamps.
Look at my stained fingers! That's how you know you've had fun, eh?

  I didn't have black ink, but that's not too much of a matter. I just used what I had- blue and red. Here's a test page.

  And here are pages in my actual sketchbook.


  I wanted to use Apprentice tiles in my sketchbook, and I knew I wanted to add a coloured wash on them. I would usually reach for really bright colours, but because of the Black and White course, I decided to use shades of grey instead.
I cut them into circles and they ended up looking like moons!
So I stuck one of them into my sketchbook and wrote a moon quote below it.

  We also learnt how to do a mood mandala. Here's how mine turned out once completed.


  It all looks so fun, doesn't it? If you'd like to join in on the fun, you can find out more about the course via this link.
