Playing in my Journal

It all began with this sweet tree that is tipsy after the storm
Here is the end result, my watercolor journal page

After sketching, I added a mask. When that was dry I put on a background wash then sprinkled with salt

Here it is after the rubber was taken off

I'm really enjoying this Strathmore mixed media book,
it takes light washes well, and the size is perfect for doodling

I love your journal snowman with the tree! It is the sweetest! Hope you got the yard all cleaned up after your wind storm.

Oh my gosh! This is the very sweetest (and most beautifully painted) snowman I have th shadows and love LOVE the sweet snowman. You really need to teach a class..although I don't think I could ever create this sweet painting with such personality :-)
