Art Journal Page 9/16/14 - Apple Girl

The kids are back in school and we're having a rare cloudy (almost!) chilly day so my thoughts are turning to Fall.

I wanted to include lots of September elements into this page. (I was so tempted to jump right into a Halloween page, but then decided to give September it's due!) So there's apples and pencils and numbers and letters, all set against a sheet of handwriting practice paper.

Here's how this one began...
As usual, I did my initial drawing on some scrap computer paper. I rarely have a specific plan in mind. Today I just had September in mind and it sort of went from there. Once I got the hair drawn I KNEW I would paint it red to look like an apple.
After I get the first lines drawn, I go back over everything and add thick lines and emphasize certain areas.
I added paint to the face and cut out her dress and leaves for her hair. Then I just start laying things down on my page and play around until I get it just how I want it.
She's quite apple-y delicious, I think.

I love her. She makes me want to take a walk in the changing leaves, which we don't have here. I miss fall!
