I managed to complete 2 challenge pages last weekend and this is the second one.
Art Challenge: Watercolors
Journal Prompt: It's Water Under the Bridge
I know this resembles a child's drawing of a house but it's actually my version of a covered bridge. I've never claimed to be an artist and this proves it. Any way. The center (dark blue) part of this was done on watercolor paper and then glued down to the main page. I'm thinking that I don't fully understand how to use watercolors but right or wrong I had fun. The outside edge of the page was done using watercolor colored pencils. Those are actually pretty cool. I just colored the page with the pencils and then took a damp sponge to blend them.
I finished it off with markers to add the swirly type border around the center picture which I then outlined with a black sharpie. I added the text along the bottom with a marker and randomly drew little circles around which were my version of bubbles in the water. If you're wondering what the two green spots are on either side, those were bloopers that I attempted to cover up but they still managed to shine through to say "Look at me".
