Art Journal

So I've been thinking about hexagons after seeing this pretty pillow on Pinterest the other day. And I've been thinking about cross-sections of lemons and oranges for a few weeks now.

I can't seem to bring myself to NOT use sharpies on everything. In this case I forced myself NOT to use it on the hexagons and used a brown colored pencil instead, but I really wish I had a brown sharpie... As for the lemons, I just HAD to outline them with a fine-tip sharpie.

To make this, I created a 'letter sheet' on Word and glued that down, then covered it with white gesso. Then I painted over everything. I love the design on the bowl. So pretty. I want a bowl that looks like that. I might have to take a ceramics class so I can make one!
