It is week 12 for the He-Art Journal Challenge.
WEEK 12 - Watercolor Wonder (watercolor-y effects)
Assignment: Create a spread or a page using water colors or something similar. You can spritz, Twinkly H2O, add a little water to your markers... maybe just a splash of color... Use any stamps you want, colors, etc. Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!
This is similar to what I was planning on doing last week.
Water colouring is not my medium of choice. I just can't seem to get it right. I have seen beautiful works of art done with watercolour, just not mine.
But I am quite happy with how these pages turned out.
I coloured the background paper by using my acrylic block as a palette. I put the colour on (I used my Stampin' Up markers) the block and used my water pen to pick up the colour and colour the sky and grass.
Then I needed to colour in these images.
The palette method didn't really work, the colours weren't as vibrant as I liked, so I outlined the images or where the shading should be and then moved the colour with my water pen.
I really love how these mushrooms turned out :)
I found this poem on the Internet. It was written anonymously.
This Sunday is boss day. What a weird day to have it. It should be during the weekday.
But anyway, Ashley wanted to make something for her boss's.
So she comes home with some chocolates and glass containers.
Then says okay mom I need your help.
Which means, mom can you do this for me, lol.
So we go into my craft room to decorate the containers. She didn't want them to be fancy as both her boss' are men.
You know they just want the chocolates anyway, teehee.
Onto My Day:
I took another nap today....a long one. Not sure if it from my late nights or having no pop :(
As I was in the craft room today, I realized why I haven't created that much lately.....my room is a complete mess.
So I started cleaning and organizing it tonight.
Would you believe I only got to my Copic papers. Crazy eh?
I had some of my papers mixed up. But the only ones messed up and not properly labeled were my Georgia Pacific and Staples. The good papers were labeled and separated.
Hubby worked till 8:00 again tonight. So we are watching the last few episodes of Castle.
Thankful for turkey leftovers ;)
Chocolate.....I'm replacing my pop for chocolate ;)
Taking a walk with my friend.
That tomorrow is Friday :)
What are you thankful for today?
