A Ledger of Color

Several years ago, I purchased this old ledger at a thrift store:

Hard covered ledger book

I thought it would be the perfect art journal!

So I started a color journal.  Here are some of my papers I have created:

Green & Yellow dye print

The above print I made using a dye and salt technique with leaves at the lake.  I also attached a photo I took.  I love the greens and yellow.

Here is another green and yellow one.  This one uses a photo, a piece of mica and some papers I purchased:

I love the shades of orange in this one:

I thought the paint color sample was a good match!

Wild strawberries were my inspiration for the color red:

And I liked the multi colors of this one:

colorful fairy print

It says:  The woods are full of fairies, The trees are all alive; The river overflows with them, See how they dip and dive!  (Author Unknown)

I hope to continue adding to my color journal this week at the lake.  I am bringing my watercolors and acrylic paints with me.

Have you ever created a color journal?  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Creating!  🙂
