Louise's Whimsical Creatures journal is a really cute little journal - I guess it's whimsical! The fact that it was Pam's journal, and Louise has put a page together with both of their work - heartwarming. 💛
I wasn't really sure what kind of creatures to do, but Louise's page gave me the idea - it says Australia, home to many whimsical creatures. So I came up with the idea to do some dancing brolgas!
So, as usual, I didn't take any progress pics. But I gessoed my pages so I could watercolour them - the pages of this journal aren't very thick. I then added some lovely Art Spectrum Australian watercolours - Pilbara Red, Australian Red Gold, Yellow Ochre and Tasman Blue! Once dry, I sealed the pages with Micador Matt Spray. Stinks, and I can't stand the smell, but it works... 😑
I found some pics of dancing brolgas on Pinterest, and sketched them onto a scrap piece of paper first. I then drew them freehand over my pages with pen in a really messy style. 😄
