Ready for a Sketchbook Fashion Art Challenge?

Ready for a sketchbook fashion art challenge on instagram and social media?

#bulletjournalselfiechallenge

(Yeah, I know it’s a long hashtag, but with a name like VOLPINTESTA, long is kinda my thing…..lol!)

HERE”S THE LINK TO MY VIDEO/ ARTICLE ON HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR ART TO SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA if you need help with that!

Ready, set, grab your Moleskines, Bullet Journals, Sketchbooks or Digital Sketchbooks (Tayasui Sketches app is my favorite as you know….) and create some sketchbook fashion art….. oh, heck draw on a napkin if you must!!!

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR LEVEL or STYLE!

Use gouache, or watercolor, or ballpoint pen…… or crayons, oil pastels, collage, markers….Microns, Brush pens, pencils..

I used Winsor and Newton Van Dyke Brown gouache with a paintbrush and I sketched from a photo I liked of my self.

Share , search, and use the hashtag #bulletjournalselfiechallenge on instagram, Facebook, twitter….

What’s the point?

THE POINT IS TO SHARE YOUR VOICE.  To meet others and see their interpretations. To connect,

and to

MAKE SOMETHING!!!

If you ‘re like me, you’ll probably feel a little anxious, scared or excited if you aren’t in the habit of sketching all the time, or sharing.

Once you start in you’ll feel something else…

Art sketchbook challenge- the meditation of creation Laura Vopintesta

The #meditationofcreation will set in, as you explore, try, try again, adventure, listen, look, experiment, as you

PLAY
