journal page and work-in-progress

Well, today I was too busy USING my new art supplies to make my video, so look for that tomorrow!  Instead, here is my art journal entry--ideas that I like from a magazine on pretty pages of layered paints.  And a portrait of my niece that I'm nearly finished with.  I'm not sure how happy I am with it because it is meant to be a gift for my SIL and I know that it doesn't EXACTLY capture her sweet daughter...I always hesitate.  Mommies know their children so well that I don't know if I'd ever feel completely confident giving it to her.  Anyway, here it is.  I'm working in soft pastels on pastel board.  I've never used pastel board before and I really want more!  They hold so many layers of color and look so smooth and soft.  I almost didn't buy it, but I'm so glad I did.  Now, I know that I like the boards so much more than paper.
