Hawaii Watercolor Journal
For our two weeks in Hawaii, I brought along a little handmade journal that I had purchased last year at ArtFest. The journal is only 5x7, so very compact and easy for travel. I brought along an assortment of watercolors, a medium I haven't used very much.
At first I thought I would use the journal for visual journaling like I've done in other journals using acrylic paint. I did the first couple of pages this way . . .
. . . but then decided I wanted to experiment more extravagantly with the watercolors. So I abandoned plans for words and ephemera in my journal, and just had fun with a variety of watercolors and a spray bottle of water. Here's a sampling of what I created over the past couple of weeks.
