I used her photo as reference for this watercolor
I think I am getting better at catching the highlights and shadows when it comes to groups of trees, I still have more work to do to get where I want to but I am pretty happy with my progress!
I wanted to use this picture as a view from a window in my junk journal, I made my junk journal using a large Smash journal and a Recollections journal that I found on the clearance rack a Micheals, they were both damaged so I took the 2 and made them into 1 journal, I love this journal and the different patterns sometime lead me to paint and draw things I normally wouldn't.
I found a page that had wood grain that would make a perfect window frame so I cut out the windows, and I lucked out that the other side was a floral pattern and I use the cut out parts as curtains!
I taped the watercolor onto the back of the page using scotch paper tape on just the one side so that the full watercolor can still be seen if wanted.
I then used the cut out pieces from the window and used double stick tape to attach them to the window frame to make pretty curtains.
I think the journal entry turned out pretty cute and love that I have put another entry into my junk journal!
Go check out how the other ladies used this weeks prompt over at Artful Chicks!!
Big hugs and mushy stuff!
