I decided to have a go at making a journal page with JuST my watercolours and my watercolour pencils and any patterns had to be ones I created.
I started the page with splashes of colour, much like I usually start a page. Then added dots of various colours, sizes and textures. I like dots, and they're easy to draw!
The red 'flower' started off as dots and evolved in a doodle-like fashion. I added some more dots the other day, sort of 'stamen-like'.
This page doesn't feel finished yet, and it felt like 'hard work', with lots of thinking, rather than the relaxed playing around I usually do in my journal...because I was using all my own ideas and not using stencils, stamps etc I felt I was over thinking it but I wanted to try and just use my own designs so...
I can't say I'm keen to do this again, but maybe doing it more it will flow better...we'll see.
And my adventure? Chris, of Pearshaped Crafting fame, and another friend and I are off to
in Cumbria tonight and tomorrow :)
