Hello my friends, I've been playing with my first love
in my long artistic life...watercolors!
This is on a page from the new Finnabair
You can remove pages by untying the 3 denim strings, create your
page on your worktable, and then put it back into the book.
I broke out my Yarka Watercolor set from
St. Petersburg, Russia. It has a TREMENDOUS
amount of pigment that gives you a brilliant depth
of color with very little water.
I use the paints as a wash, but really like to load up the color
and have heavy pigmented areas as well. I love to outline
areas with black pen to make the colors pop.
Some of the 7x9 inch pages in the journal are watercolor paper,
which gave me the urge to paint again.
the circles with white pen using the Bubble Stencil from Finnabair.
I used pencils, pens, and markers for added effect
in this Modern Art style page.
And yes, it really is that vibrant, the red/violet is very
deep, but you can get wonderful subtle colors as well.
My daughter suffers from Fibromyalgia that creates a burning
pain all the time leaving her sapped of energy,
melted into a puddle.
This is a tribute to her strength to get up every day, go to work,
and do what she does, even though in the center of if all
she feels burned out. I'm so proud of her.
Hope you're inspired to Create.
