Thank to my dear friend Patsye and her post
I found this 328 days watercolor challenge..
It’s just perfect especially for those days I want so much to
paint but my mind is so empty that I can’t decide what to draw.
So yesterday I decided to begin with it and the first theme was “draw a shoe”
but then I read the next 4: “lamp, bag, cup, your bed” and I couldn’t resist
so I put the first 5 themes all together in one art journaling page..
..Do you think It was cheating? 🙂
I used my new watercolor notebook,
the one I showed you in the previous post with the deckle edges..
I am so in love with this paper I found.
You wet the paper as much as you want but it doesn’t change shape at all..
Here is a picture of it..
The color as you can see is not white, it seems more like a light and warm recycled paper
and it has some colored spots here and there..
Me and my husband have a typography so we collaborates with some paper suppliers
and I am testing different papers with watercolors cause it seems so hard to find
a very good watercolor book that at the same time is not so expensive ..
You know, I paint a lot and every art journal page I paint is usually a double page
and I can’t use for all the subjects the same size..
Not all subjects fits well in small and long pages, sometimes I need something
bigger or more squared.. I should spend a fortune in watercolor notebook.
I am sure I am not the only one having this complain
So a project I am thinking of,
is one of these days to make and sell watercolor notebooks at less than 10 Euro
with good papers I found and I use too,
with different kind of binding and sizes and with the cover painted by me..
I personally prefer to have mine sewed with a white twine, it looks more wild I think
but everyone has his preferences..
In any case I still don’t know if I am going to do this..
For the moment it’s just a project under construction..
See you soon my friends..
If you use an Art journal or a sketchbook,

We are waiting for you.
