DeeDee Catron posted a fantastic technique using watercolor pencils and a stencil, you can see it here. I just love it and have been practicing....
When I started this spread I had a totally different idea in mind. Isn't it funny how once you start putting your idea on paper it can make a complete 180??!?
I started with mixed media paper and added some gesso. I also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Distress stain and markers, Faber Castell Aquarelle pencils, Prima stencil, mat gel, VLVS! whimsical diver and adventure awaits, Um Wow Studio layered circles, sequins and floral beads.
Cool right?? I am happy with how it worked out and I love the brightness of the blue!!
This journal spread is also going to be my entry over at Words & Paintery. The October challenge, their first (!), is up and the new creative teams is sharing some AWESOME inspiration!! Please make sure you check it out!!
