I started giving the studio a bit of a clean-up, who would have known that I had a workbench under all that stuff! It is amazing – almost like having new tools to play with.
This journal was one of the finds – I made it earlier this year (I think!) it was an old desk diary cover that I covered with embroidered fabric. I have sewn two signatures of watercolour paper into it and this is my new art journal.
I bought some water colour paints before we moved to Esperance (nearly three years ago!) and they haven’t been used. So I decided that I would experiment in this journal with watercolour backgrounds – normally I use acrylic paint to create my backgrounds.

Hey, the page turned out great. Watercolor takes some time…you’re a natural!
Thanks Lynn, I am really enjoying playing with the watercolours – I’m thinking about just using this journal for watercolours.
A great find! Excavating in one’s own studio is always an adventure 😉 I like the cover you added, and your watercolor pages are very pretty – I especially love the pattern created in the blue ones, very cool. My water colors usually turn to mud!
