On Melisa's blog she posted a page in her journal called "No Big Deal" and the technique she used was such a great idea I had to try with my own journal!
This is another entry into my "Composition Book" journal. What I did was pick out a picture in a magazine, glue it onto a page, gesso over top of it (lightly over the image so that I could still see an outline of the image)... When that fully dried (I would leave it a few hours) I used watercolor crayons to paint overtop of it. The effect created vibrant beautiful colors. The one thing I did notice that made it a little difficult for me was if I blended the blue in the color went a mucky color because the paint underneath it was not a permanent. Over on Melisa's blog she used Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencil Crayons which are permanent. I am going to look for some of those and give them a try.
I hope you like it. I had a fun time creating it. Thanks Melisa for the idea.
Happy Creating Everyone!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
