Watercolor Robin

My latest little watercolor charm

Cardinal in my Art Journal

I have been having so much fun in my mixed media art journal book. I made it from an old 1945 book.
I would have never thought of using yellow for a background until I saw what Junelle Jacobson did in the class I'm taking from her. Such fun.

Today's Art Journal Page.

Sometimes I can get carried away and do to much...I added pen line work and the words...I should have just left it alone. This is what personal art journals are learn, practice, try new things. I love this art journal I am working in..this was on a gesso'd page, I didn't like how the watercolors didn't flow, so I used acrylics.

Last night our power kept going on and off, so I sat in front of the fire and did this sketch of a little garage at Venice Beach. I used the Neo II crayons and water, they work great on gesso

Wild and Crazy Creative Mess

I took the class project of "whats in my head" to the next I added Rock Candy Stickles to the brush handles, my colored eggs in the nest and the center of the daisy. I added punched out flowers. When finished I sprayed it with this not what is in my head!! A Creative Mess. I had such a good time and a good laugh at myself!
