Art Journal page: Gratitude

This is a page with lighter colors then I normally use, and no acrylic paint or black outline :)
It was fun to make and I like how it turned out, maybe I'll do another one like this next time...

Here's how I made this:
Pencil drawing on the watercolor-pages of my journal.
(and that's my new Moleskine-pencil "2B")

A layer of gesso... 
This protects the drawing.

Decided to try pencils to color in the skin tone.

Background with Inktense pencils...

I just love these pencils.
You don't need to apply a lot to create rich color.
Colors used: Deep blue, bright blue, Iris blue...
(difficult to see this on the photo's, I know)

Rubbed the background with tissue-paper to create some structure.
And I used Deep blue for the eyes.

Collage dress. (a nice pattern found in a magazine)
And Inktense pencil (willow) for the hair.

More Inktense pencil for the darker tone. (sepia ink)
Also used to shade the dress.

To finish the page I used markers (Copic) and more collage...
