Drawing with ballpoint

I'm a big fan of Andrea Joseph's artwork. She uses ballpoints and colored pencils, often in Moleskine Sketchbooks. I had not a lot of time to draw today and attempted a little sketch with ballpoint. The combination of these materials work well on the Moleskine paper, and no mess with paints :)
Drawing like this is relaxing, but I have to practice more I think....

My subject: silver nailpolish :) and the materials used (forgot the white pencil)

1 : just a sketch to "feel" the shape
2: Blue "BIC" 
3: Black "BIC"
I used colored pencils on top, and accents with white gelpen.

Andrea Joseph's work is really amazing, see her blog here.

Crochet bunny

My daughter Sarah takes her little bunny everywhere. But it's getting old. So I made her a second one. Trying to make it look exactly the same was hard because I made the first one 1,5 years ago, and didn't write down what I did or used.
 This is the new bunny:

Next to the old one (right):
Sarah was very happy with it, she loves the "silly" look on its face.

New Art Journal or sketchbook?

I started my new journal: a Moleskine sketchbook large...

After these pages I decided to dedicate this book to small fantasy-paintings, and I'll continue to fill it with faeries, mermaids and other magical things :)
I'll have to start (or make) a new big book for more free Art-Journalling: collage, paint, experiments...

Art Journal pages: Flower fairy's

These are the last two pages of this journal...makes me a bit sad... It was a lot of fun to just open the journal and start drawing, painting, collaging!

"Flower fairy's": Acrylics, colored pencils, markers and collage.

I'll start a new journal very soon, Art-Journaling is addictive :)
It will be a bit smaller: a Moleskine sketchbook.
But first I'll make a little video of this finished book.
