Once I started playing with watercolor again I remembered I have a watercolor journal I've been neglecting. I had never really used it at all actually, because I worried about making a mess of it. That ship has sailed and now I'm all about making messes!Last night I threw on some Buffy the Vampire Slayer and started painting. I was a bit worried that it would soak through because I was using a lot of water. The spray bottle and I are close friends. Watercolor is such an incredibly versatile media because you use it precisely or let it do its own thing. I really like the way the paint bleeds and blends into itself. The spray from the bottle makes wonderful little splashes on the page.
I'm happy to report that the pages withstood my saturation and the back sides were left unharmed. There was a bit of seepage at the seem but that kind of made me happy.
Now I've happily added another journal to my rotation! I can really feel myself letting go. Letting myself try things without the fear of failing. It's a relief.
