Learn How to Create a Layered Portrait in Your Art Journal

I love making messy backgrounds in my art journal and layering a quick portrait over the top!  In this video for the Shawn Petite Creative Team, I'll show you how I add some quick layers to my art journal with oil pastels, acrylic paint and stencils, collage and more!  You'll also learn how to sketch a simple face and blend in some oil paint sticks to add shadows and highlights and skin tones!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and are inspired to create some beautiful art of your own!  I'd love it if you share with me what you've made!
