I’ve recently had to return to work in my husband’s business. It has been an adjustment for me.
I find simply creating something – no matter how small or simple, helps relax me in the evening after work. I’m reminded that it isn’t completing a masterpiece that is important but just doing some ART that brings me JOY! 🙂
I started a new (purchased) journal today from Strathmore (since my handmade journal is still in process) –
I love the soft cover and can’t wait to decorate the inside cover like I suggested in yesterday’s post!
It was relaxing to draw circles with Tombow water soluble markers (and Artist Loft which are a cheap brand at Michael’s). ADD water with a water brush and then MAGIC happens when the colors blend together!
I started to add some highlights of my white space with a black Micron .01 pen:
This is so FUN! I love the colors and can’t wait to finish dooding!
Happy Creating! 🙂

The colors in this leaf print remind me of peacock feathers:
I printed my leaves with acrylic paints. I then decided to experiment and combine watercolor, crayon resist and water soluble markers.
I would not have thought of combining these techniques if I had not taken Carla Sonheim’s FREE Art classes for Kids!
I started playing and had so much fun!
I have found a new way to create papers for my collages!
I just love the bright colors!
I also had to make a bird!
Happy Creating! 🙂
