Spirograph Watercolor Journal Page

Featured

I wanted to try something different in my journal so I looked around my studio and found the Spirograph set. I hadn’t used it in years. I bought this for my kids when they were little and luckily it was passed back to me when they grew up.

I started this page with a watercolor wash for the background and set it aside. While that was drying, I searched my paper stash and found coordinating sheets to create a couple of Spirograph designs. I cut them out and glued them onto the page. Next I drew in doodles, wrote a few inspiring words and of course added stickles for a little bling. Last I added a little detailing with shading and highlights and that was it.

You can make some really interesting art and cards using a simple Spirograph set. Just let your imagination run wild and have fun!

Have a fantastic week!

The Power of You Mini Book

Just a quickie post today. I created this little 3.25″ x 4.5″ mini book in an online class by Joanne Sharpe called Art Sparks 1 through Ruzuku.com. I filled it with some of my favorite quotes which I’ll be sharing with you over the next few weekends.

If you don’t know about Joanne Sharpe, she is a super talented artist and instructor. I’ve been a big fan of hers for a long time and just love her work. I highly recommend her classes as they’re so much fun!

This is my first quote:

Have a great weekend!

The Cat’s Meow Angel Watercolor Journal Page

Since I painted an angel with a little puppy, I only thought it was fair to also paint a cute kitty. This is my latest creation in my Strathmore 5.5″ x 8.5″ Watercolor Journal. Cats have the coolest personalities. My sister once had a cat that was raised by her dogs and he thought and acted more like a dog than a cat, lol. He was an awesome cat to say the least!

Hope you’re starting your week off grand! 😊

Angel of Peace Watercolor Journal Page

My newest creation in my Strathmore 5.5″ x 8.5″ Watercolor Journal. I completely panicked in making this angel. My white Posca Pen ran out of ink shortly after starting the outlines. I had a pretty good groove going on and didn’t want to stop so I switched to my white Uni-Ball Signo Gel pen and it worked beautifully. It makes a broader line but the gel ink is also bolder. Just like the Posca Pen, if you make a mistake you can quickly erase it with a little water and a brush, but the ink has to be wet. Once it dries it’s permanent.

Wishing you a wonderful week 😊

Angel of Prayer Watercolor Journal Page

Since I filled up my other journal, this is the first angel in my new journal, Angel of Prayer. I tried something new with her halo but I’m not sure if I like it. What do you think?

I also limited my color palette on this one. After she was all done, I took a look at her and she reminded me of Easter with these colors.

Hope you have a lovely week 😊

Angel of Love Watercolor Journal Page

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day which is just a 4 days away, I made this Angel of Love. This was my last painting in this 5.5″ x 8″ journal. I finally filled it up, Yay!

I somehow keep making that beautiful turquoise blue color. I have mixed and mixed trying to duplicate but haven’t had any luck. Funny enough, it happens completely by accident. I don’t even notice it until it dries. I’m waffling buying a tube of paint, the hard part is finding the color of turquoise.

Wishing you a wonderful week.

Heavenly Angel Watercolor Journal Page

This is my latest angel that I created in my Strathmore 5.5″ x 8″ watercolor journal. I started with a sketch and then painted her. I wasn’t too crazy about her green colors at first but it definitely grew on me. I can’t decide whether I like the halo or glowing aura more. Which style is your favorite?

Wishing you a lovely week.

Watercolor Angel of Serenity Journal Page

This is my latest angel that I created in my Strathmore 5.5″ x 8″ watercolor journal. I always start with a light pencil sketch first and then paint with bright fun colors. I’m currently working on a larger angel but she isn’t done yet, so stay tuned.

Once I get the colors to where I like them I let them completely dry. Next I painted her halo with gold acrylic paint and let that dry. I then added doodles with my white Posca pen and a little more detailing with watercolor paints and colored pencils. I finished her off with a little bling. I love the little sparkles of magic.

I hope she inspires you to create your own angel.
