inspiration monday


i've been wanting to take my artwork in a bit of a different direction for a while now.  sometimes just changing your favorite color palette is all you need to put a new perspective on things (can you believe that no orange was used to create this journal page?!!).  who knew that blue and green watercolor could be so much fun to play with.....!

this journal page was created using micron pens, graphite pencil and watercolors on fabriano artistico 140 lb. soft press paper
