And So It Starts...

The very first page of my very first watercolor journal.

I started it last night. A light pencil sketch for guidance. Inked out the book and the words. The blues and brown added with my watercolor pencils. This morning I added the water to turn the pencil into paint. Colored in the yellows and pinks and watered them out. Added out the little silhouette.

And done.

I think I'm in love. 


  1. Wow! That is beautiful Nichole! I love your writing too. The little silhouette is perfect. What journal did you get? The paper looks really nice. Aren't those watercolor pencils great?

  2. Yay! Thank you! I'm pretty fond of that little silhouette, too. I think I may try to incorporate little red balloons throughout the journal. What do you think? And the journal is a Moleskine watercolor journal. I'm in love with the paper (and the smell...).

  3. That's a great idea! What size is the journal? I have a pocket sized Moleskine watercolor and several of their sketchbooks but no watercolor. Can you send me a link to the one you got? I did the cover of my sketchbook! I'll blog it sometime this week. So fun!
