Second day for our watercolour week and Neil has been playing with a new set of watercolours we've had for a few weeks: The Koh-I-noor watercolour set. He has been "road testing" them, making a beautiful Art Journal page along the way.
This shows you a different fun way to approach art journaling... If you test all the inks/paints/watercolour/pens etc you have in your craft room this way and add a few stamps/images you "might" have, you will quickly fill a journal ;)
If you try it out, don't forget to show us ;)
I needed/wanted a new set of paints that were nice and portable so when I saw the Koh-I-Noor set it kinda just fell into my basket and to be honest I looked more at the "package" than the colour choice so when it arrived, I didn't know what the colours were like! I just loved the way they stacked LOL
The first thing I did was to add a white circle sticker to the centre well and paint the colour from the corresponding cake onto it so I would know what the colour was.
I added lots of little notes in pen and generally had a good time to create a fun and practical page in my journal.
So, I laid the colours on the left page; did a wash on the right page. Laid some colour over it to see the translucency and generally played around!
I stamped the image onto card and then worked with the watercolour over it. I tried some blending, played with the pearl, which sits nicely over the stamping which is something that doesn't always work well with watercolour. Once it was dry I covered it with a couple of layers of clear UTEE and stuck it down.
