Watercolor Art Journal

Hello Everyone,

I would like to share with you a page I've done in my new Watercolor journal, aiming to fill up by the end of this year :)


I bought this A5 size Brustro journal, it is a artist sketch book, 160 GSM. But I wanted to use watercolors, so I primed it with clear gesso. It worked well!! 

 At  Art Journal journey, Chrissie has chosen theme - Winter wonderland.
We don't get snow fall in Bangalore, I experienced that only once!  Right now, weather is very cold here, too. So it was fun bring all these feelings on journal page.
I've used regular watercolors from pans for the background. Bird is stamp image from Impression Obsession, which I colored with distress inks.

Lets see how far this watercolor journey takes me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
