Bright Ideas: Inktober 1, Moneybelt

INKTOBER IS HERE!

w16-10-1-bi-its-only-money-04-sqOne of the two challenges I look forward to, this one is drawing every day.
It is a great way to tone your drawing skills, play with texture in line-work.
For all my love of color, I love creating ink drawings…

I wrote on these pages after taking the images, about my mom, who had a fantastically small waist that even as a teenager I never came close to having — possibly from wearing Merry Widows (corsets) as a young woman.   When I was a child I liked to wear this black velvet belt with the money attached and the sparkling rhinestones!

Bright Ideas multi-color journal, with Platinum Carbon pen with Platinum Carbon cartridges and Lamy Al-Star with De Atramentis Document black ink,
White Uniball Signo pen, Fat white Pitt pen, and colored pencils.
