A Rainbow… Trout

I had a lot of fun asking “fisherman” at the lake yesterday what kind of trout I drew in my art journal… (before I wrote the name).

I got several answers.  Two fisherman thought it was a Cutthroat, three guessed a Brown trout and one got it right!

Yep, you guessed correctly too!  Of course it is a Rainbow Trout – Just look at the background colors!! Lol!

Happy Fishing! 🙂

Cloudy Weather

I created this yesterday in my art journal with a new technique I learned from Carla Sonheim.  It says, “Cloudy with a chance of rainbows.” 🌈

I used watercolor paint and a scraper to create this rainbow effect. I added my own touch with some gelli-printed deli paper clouds at the top of the page with a glue stick.

Our cloudy weather is producing lots of snow in the Pacific Northwest!

Happy Monday!  🙂

Double The Fun

I wanted to give a shout out for Jodi at Life In Between and her daughter-in-law, Colleen for their Etsy shop – McKinney x 2 Designs!  I purchased a little gift for a friend and one of Jodi’s beautiful watercolor cards.  I am very pleased with the quality of their artwork and the fast service, right to my door!  They look like they will be doubly successful – YAY!

Speaking of FUN!  Here is a rainbow of Gelli prints I did yesterday:

I did some on 90 lb hot press watercolor paper and some on deli paper.  I used Golden Fluid Acrylics.  It was super fun to mix the colors and try a variety of stencils and other patterns.

One such experiment was using a domino to imprint patterns:

Double the fun to create the papers and use them in a collage some day…

Cheers!  🙂
