All these Soul Journal entries are in Journal #5 created from May 2004 to October 2004. I used an Arches Papier Aquarelle book with cold pressed paper. They no longer make them which is unfortunate. It was a beautiful grey color that tied with ribbon just begging to be an art journal.
All of the pages were painted using Caran d’Ache Classic Neocolor II Water-Soluble Pastels and Dr Ph Martins Concentrated Watercolors. My favorite way to use Caran d’Ache is to draw with it, than add water…like the old paint-by-numbers. And with Dr Martins, I drip the color onto the paper with the eyedropper, then move the paper around to let the colors bleed. Sometimes I add a little water after to dilute them in spots. I absolutely love the vibrancy I get with Dr Martins.
Happy Sunday Funday! Hope you are inspired to play with colors!
