Hi all another post today :-)   if you are looking for the Musically challgenge gdt post, scroll one post down.

Remember the coloured Rick St. Dennis Pierrot called La Commedia e spettacolare.......I finished my art journal page today. I made it for the new challenge at Craft Barn blog, it's called Q&L challenge and  you need to use a quote or song lyrics on your project. There are 2 words Smile and Up, you can use both or just one.  I used Smile.

I love the Pierrot image so much, it just had to be on this art journal page, and the word Smile and Pierrot made me think of this song by Charlie Chaplin immetiately. so here it is

the image is couloured using Caran d'ache Luminance pencils (see how to colour this image here) the background is a gelli print.  The paints used are all DecoArt Americana Acrylics, colours: Lilac, Tomato Red, Lemon Yellow, Ocean blue, Titanium white.



  1. Visiting from The Craft Barn - VERY beautiful Pierrot image. I am impressed with your handwriting too, so neat & easy to read :o)

  2. The Gelli print background is gorgeous and the I am so impressed by your colouring of your clown image!
