Studio Sunday and Watercolor Play and Doodling


Welcome to Sunday!  I hope you have had a creative week!  I had fun doodling with my stencils and watercolors yesterday.  I started by creating a large grid of different sized squares and rectangles (which was actually a stencil I cut) and washed across the page using a light grey.  


Once the grid was in place, I chose different stencils and watercolored them into each section.  There were a couple that I used Distress Ink Pads on but 99% of this is all watercolor.  I discovered a new doodling technique by scribbling through the stencil that I laid on top of the color.  I love this weird scratchy look.


So to go along with that scratchy look, I outlined the squares and some of the stencil images in the same style.  Where extra water created a more blended look and loss of the defined image, I left those areas undefined.




Some of the stencil images continued into the next space and I went along with that when I outlined them and the blocks where they overlapped.  I think it created a really interesting look.



This was a lot of fun and I plan on doing more of this inside my watercolor journal.


There are more stencils coming and even rubber stamps with imagery taken from my earlier Thermofax Screen designs.  I can't wait and will keep you updated!

Have a great weekend and keep on creating!

I love the look, Margaret! As always, you have a great eye for design. I like where the stencils drifted into the next grid.
