Watercolor Garden Journaling
Created by Sophia Vida
For this Project you will need:
– Stickles: Stardust, Ice Blue
– Round Watercolor Brush
– Clean water and paper towels
The journaling adventure continues…… These are my latest pages. With spring just around the corner I couldn’t resist drawing blooming flowers.
I basically used the same supplies as my last journal pages but this time I decided to make a pencil sketch for the tree. I wanted to make sure I had placement of the branches good so I could get all my words on the page. Everything else went on the page with the pen.
To make these pages you may want to start by making a light pencil sketch first. Or just jump right in and see what happens. Draw the heart borders on the top and bottom with the Sakura Micron Black Pen (Size 01). Next add the side stitched borders. Then draw your flowers, sun and butterflies and anything else you like. Do the same for the second page by starting with the borders. Then do a pencil sketch of the tree and check your placement for the words. Trace over the tree and words with the Black Pen (Size 01). Last add the flowers and buzzing bees.
Once your drawings are finished, use the Kimberly Watercolor Pencils to color the pages. Blend the colors using the round brush dipped in water. Use a paper towel to blot the excess water. Rinse your brush when changing colors to keep them from getting muddy.
After your water coloring is dry, use the Sakura Jelly Roll Pens to highlight the pages. Last add some bling with the Stardust and Ice Blue Stickles and that is it!
Journaling can be anything you want it to be. You can share it or keep it private. Whatever it is, enjoy!!!
Thanks for looking and have lots of fun creating your own journal pages!
