It's been very and sometimes you get a little tired and you just want to create for your own personal journals with minimal supplies. Today for you I created this page.
|for the life of me I couldn't get this picture to clear up. It reads: |
Like wildflowers you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.
Not much to show you.. I used the inks/liquid water colors on some very thick water color paper (140lb), in the Strathesmore 400 Series Watercolor Journal. I wet the page with water, from a spray bottle. Moved some colors around as much as I could. Got flustered but kept going. Sometimes being able to stamp pretty things, like these flowers are a awesome extra detail to any colored journal page and I knew I would need this for this one. I then added a little bit of Grumbacher's Academy unbleached titanium white with the watercolors and created more of a gouache (a more opaque watercolor). I stamped my blossoms and went around the edges of my page with the violet extra soft pastel. After playing with just a few supplies from my travel kit, a page was created. Quick and easy summer page and a quote I grabbed from one of my boards on pinterest that spoke to me.
