saturday splash

i had time this afternoon to do something creative so i found myself in my art room digging out my watercolor box and my watercolor brushes. i haven't used watercolors for a long time. this is actually the first rolodex card i've created using watercolor paper. i guess i've stayed away from using watercolor paper because i like the thickness of multiple layers of paper gives. it feels sturdier to me. but i decided to do something different and coming up with a theme was easy. i love anything celestial so i decided to do a sunshine. after the watercolors were dry i used a black marker to sketch around the sun and then added some H2O's to make it sparkle. there is something joyful about a blue sky on a sunny day.
