Paper Circles

5 Comments

Last week when I was in Wellington, the nearest city I splurged on a lot of art materials – papers, pens, paints etc.  The item I was most excited about was the journal I brought.  I had one like last year, it was lovely to work in, the paper is 150gm so you can really be rough with it.  It doesnt warp and bubble.  The local shops said they dont make it anymore, which I found out was a lie the shop in Wellingtonsaid it is still made.  Any way I brought 5.  (Luckily they were cheap! 

Today I did my first journal page in it.  I decided to follow the prompt I found on Heidi Illustrates where Catherine Constance was interviewed.  She is one of my favourite illustrators.  When she is stuck she draws a circle.  So I cut two circles from my stash of watercolour splashes and hey presto.

  1. Hi Sharon,
    Thank you for the lovely comment. You’ve cheered my day up. Love what you have done with my prompt and I love all those happy colours and the message. Brilliant journal page.

    Glad you found your journal… 🙂

  2. Gorgeous journal page, full of happy details and colours that ‘zing’. I like the idea of just drawing a circle as a prompt, or cutting some out of unused scraps as you did. Lovely illustration that goes so well with the wording. Always nice to find a new blog like yours – thanks to Paper Saturdays.

  3. Happy Paper Saturdays Sharon. Five journals…you made me smile…it is something I would do too. Go for it girl that is all I can say. Thank you for sharing! ManonX

  4. I just love the colorful and whimsical feel of your art journal page. It’s so much fun to play with new art materials, so I’m sure you had a blast working on it too. Blessings!

  5. Wow, another great piece of art. I love it. It’s so colourful and heartwarming!
