It's a busy place under the sea

I was looking forward to creating a spread in this journal as I share Melissa's sea obsession. I grabbed all my blue paints...cobalt, cerulean, ultramarine and a light blue metallic. Using these with a dash of yellow to add some green I tried to create a sense of the many blues of the ocean...going from light to dark to mimic swimming from the surface down.

I was really happy with my sea so then I sat down and drew all the creatures I wanted living there. I used a mixture of coloured pencils and crayons to create the mermaids, cuttlefish, starfish, jellyfish, whale, sea ferns, various fish and the sperm whale...the sea of my imagination.
Thank you Melissa xox


  1. Love your colourful spread Amanda!

  2. Love your page AJ, the dreamy background and all of the hand drawn elements are wonderful.

  3. Amanda I love this, I know what you mean by all the blues and greens and even yellows, there are so many shades under the sea. I love your sea creatures, especially the jellyfish, you did such a beautiful job on this, thank you so much 🙂🙏
