Working with Chalk Pastels can be fun, messy and totally frustrating all at the same time. I’ve found that I like working with chalk pastels in my art journal the best. I always start with a layer of Gesso. How thick of a layer will depend on what medium I’m working with. Since I’m using chalk pastels for this piece my Gesso layer is thin because I’ll be covering the entire page with color.Pink Pastel Doodle Tutu-How to

First thing you’ll need to do, is to sketch in pencil your figure. Since it was #nationalballetday yesterday I chose to sketch a ballerina figure. I saw a photograph on pinterest that inspired this drawing.

With chalk pastels, color in your ballerina. Blending and layering until she’s complete.

Add a background color. Then spray entire page with a fixative. Hair spray will also work. The fixative will darken the colors.

Once the fixative dries you can now add doodles. Pens will not work over the chalk pastels until it’s been sprayed.

Add a quote to the page if you like. I chose a quote by Susannah Conway. “Always wear your invisible crown.”
