My mixed media journal

GREEN pepper page
Here's one of my watercolors glued onto a cool background in my sketchbook.
Fun backgrounds, huh?
GREEN pepper
EASY! I used a white crayon and Colorations Liquid Watercolor.

Here's another background I've done, same technique.

I started with the white crayon, on this one, and added yellow and orange liquid watercolor (left), then let it dry, and added some red (right).

Then I doodled some flowers in permanent ink and painted the negative space with Violet liquid watercolor.

We'll play with watercolors and white crayons in the mixed media journal workshop I'm teaching at San Clemente Art Supply (with Linda Blinn!) on July 9 & 10 (register here). AND, I'll show you how to draw and paint a little watercolor similar to the green pepper...and a whole bunch of other cool stuff.
