Watercolour Calendar Journaling

Some more in my watercolour calendar journal from August. Whenever I just can't decide how to start a page I get out my stencils. The left of this was sprayed through the stencil, and the right page was used to blot the remaining ink to get the stamped image
I loved those colours and decided to add some tape that would tone but add something else

This tape is great in that it inspires me to add some pink next. I was watching a cool video from Teesha Moore over at the Artstronauts Club where she used ink in a water brush. I decided I'd like to try that to do some lettering so decanted some bubblegum pink
And here's the pink added to the page!
I went a bit crazy - partly because I loved the look of the pink, and its effect over the other ink, but also because I had more than I realised in the brush and didn't want to waste too much of it. Here's what happened on the other page
Then I went back to adding some more of the tape trim to my original page 
Happily, I went to see "The Hundred-Foot Journey" - happily because it's a lovely movie, and also because the tape tied in nicely with the Indian aspect. I also finished my Me Time Messages project that week.

On the other page my flower got a bit more attention
My photos of my cards are a good record especially since these will be gifted away
I love the colour combinations in this spread...all because of the tape I added a the start :-)

The time for me to get back to paints and pens is WAY overdue! Weaving is great fun but when I see what you've been to . . . . well!
