color blox




several months ago i posted about my fabulous 
as well as inspiration taken from mimi robinson's book "Local Color".....
and as it turns out, my in-the-box-grid-girl has been
so very happy painting these colorful little squares ever since!

it's such a great way to document the loveliness of a day.....





as well as some of the not-so-lovely.






so, i decided to create a little journal for these color gems
so they could celebrate all their blocky splendor together in one place.....






and here's a peek inside!

(you can watch this video in larger format here)





these are the supplies i used to create my journal:
canson moulin du roy cold press w/c paper,
daniel smith and sennelier watercolor,
pilot .3 mechanical pencil

What a cool journal! I love how it leaves the interpretation up to the viewer. I guessed what each meant. The colors were certainly leading me in a direction. What a creative way to document!
