Sassy Girl Sketch

'she wanted to dance'

I just love sketching. It frees my mind and I just never know what or who will end up on the page. This girl was sketched out using a number 2 pencil. Typically I go for my graphite but thought I would change it up this time. lol

I have been flipping through the pages of Julie Nutting's Collage Couture the other day which inspired me to sketch out this sassy girl with the fancy outfit. Its a fun book full of great techniques for fashionista type "she art" As you can see I went a bit wild with her hair. And then daring with her outfit! But I love it.

I am sharing her this week for Sunday Sketches. Don't forget to stop by Sophia's blog to see all the sketched loveliness being shared this week!
