I 'm linking up to Artsyville's Glue-It Tuesdays
I had started a painting on a page in my art journal but lost interest fast.
I thought I would use that as a base for this composition.
|I keep a plastic sandwich bag for my watercolor scraps.|
I get great satisfaction out of the fact that
I can use all these little bits together.
Another project I am working on involves this book I have WaterPaperPaint and I have tried a number of the projects.
This one is Project 20:
| the edges of the artwork don't appear perfectly straight,|
I'll have to flatten in some books.
Of course, as I do with most instructions and recipes,
I don't read all the way through...[shocker]
I was supposed to use black paper or matte black acrylic to start but I just used black gouache.
So it got a bit tricky and easily muddied up the brighter gouache colors.
So next time I will be sure to use acrylic, then I won't have to go over alot of the elements to brighten them up.
I am tempted to cut this up and make four ATCs but I think I am going to leave it.

I am so glad its getting warmer. Aren't you?
A few spring-y things:
|specimens I selected while on my walk with the dog.|
|the crocuses are coming!|
|Happy Easter, Happy Spring!|
Have a terrific weekend and enjoy!
