On our way to the lake a couple of weeks ago, a large female moose trotted out on the highway in front of us. Luckily, it was further away than this close call that I recorded in my art journal last year, here.
I decided to create a mixed media page in one of my larger watercolor journals. I started by gluing a page from an old book on trees to my page. I then painted it in watercolors. I added a stencil to create a pattern. (Excuse the rocks weights in the photo…it was a windy day!)
Next, I drew a pine tree branch with needles using Tombow markers, Neocolors and color pencils. I also drew a pinecone:
I glued a few pieces of my gelli-printed paper to the page and added a little more watercolor:
Then I drew my moose and an upside down owl with Neocolors:
I like the look of watercolor on the paper but when I applied the collage papers, I lost some of the watercolor. I’m still happy with my finished page.
May your Sunday be sunny without any moose sightings… 🙂
