Monday Journal – Watercolour Bunny

I just got back from a weekend away with a few of my girlfriends, as Christy Tomlinson calls them “her true’s” (love it).  We were celebrating two of our birthdays (more on that later this week) and I had a blast.  I was, however, looking forward to getting home to see my family and get a little messy.  Getting away always gets my creative juices following.  For this week’s Monday Journal I knew I wanted to use my adorable watercolour bunny I created last week.

It’s funny because I have never really liked watercolour painting very much before because it was too transparent and I like rich saturated colour.  That is has slowly been changing this summer.

I opened up one of my art journals to a page that already had some leftover paint bits on them and added some pink sun rays to it with the Heidi Swapp Sunshine stencil.

I changed some of the pink rays to blue then used my trusty white and brown Shiva Oil Paint Sticks in between the rays to tone down the background a little.

Pastels, a quote and my little watercolour bunny and voila…

I outlined everything in a black Stabilo marks all pencil and made the quote into a thought bubble.

The quote is from the insightful Julia Cameron of the Artist’s Way and the stamp is from Mindy Lacefield’s set from last week.

I am sure we all have a hard time following Julia’s advice, I know I do.  Today I just tried to not over think it and just have fun.   You should try it, you never know what will come out of you.
