Getting Messy | Water Colour and Handwriting

2014-08-13 08.17.56 My spare time seems to be getting less and less – therefore less art journal pages are getting made. I really love the process so am determined to keep going.

My first page this week was inspired by Pinterest (as per usual) with the water colour illustration but I took it a step further using a page from an old book. I still struggle ripping out pages but I love the yellowed paper. Then I raided my scrap stash and embellished the page a little.

My next two pages are once again from my little gold album. I was home sick with a terrible cold and decided to play with acrylic paints for the first time. It was so fun and I love the abstract look. I really must play more with this medium.

And on the right hand side is a simple water colour base with some journalling. Trying to embrace my own handwriting. But I am just never happy with it.
