a new journal


i bought a strathmore visual field journal about a month ago. after standing at the display for about 20 minutes i decided to buy the kind with watercolor paper thinking i would do a watercolor only journal. i did start out with just splashing watercolor on the page and that is how i "saw" the image of the bunny on the giraffe - just from the drips and splashes. i'm positive that the watercolor only intention did NOT manifest itself since you can see i used acrylic paints, glued paper and used stamps to complete this page.

  8. WOW Roc you Roc!! Love the journal. I do the same thing with scribbles. I look away and scribble and when I look back I see a face, and then I draw it out.
