dilemma and solution


dilemma:
i found myself in a bit of a bind because my waterbrush,
that was fully loaded with permanent-yellow-deep watercolor, was accidentally dropped. 
and on it's way down towards my nice clean journal page,  it took 
a nose-dive and did two full somersaults......





{and after a few choice words, i tried to remember that
"put on a happy face" song we used to sing in school.}






solution:
big yellow accidental splotches always make good sunshines!

happy weekend to you!


{supplies:  pocket watercolor moleskine, koi watercolor,
acrobatic waterbrush, pitt pens, 4B pencil}

nancybabb said...

OK, so my question is... did you load the barrel up with the ink? I LOVE THAT IDEA! My brain is spinning with possible applications of that... I just bought extra parallel pens for that some purpose, to have different ones loaded with distress ink. :-) Now THAT can be an expensive thing, but I LOVE PARALLEL PENS!

Eulalia said...

No limits to your fantasy!!
...and yellow is my favourite colour.
I love your capricious brush!
It's raining here: your yellow smile makes bright my scraproom.
A big hug Lori.
Have a wonderful weekend.
