Art Journal January Day 27

Ok, I went back and tried out the eraser art page. It turned out better than I expected it to. I had originally intended to do a face of some kind, but just couldn't wrap my head around it. I couldn't sleep the other day, so I got up and started to journal what was in my head, and this is what came out. It is a set of hands holding the light of the sun.
I used a scribbled background of 2B, 4B and 6B charcoal pencils, and then smoothed it with a smudge stick, then I "drew" with my kneaded eraser until I got the outlines I was looking for.
Lastly I added some light yellow and flesh colored watercolor pencils to give it a little more dimension. I wrote the words with my trusty sharpie marker. :)
