Playing with paint, markers and pastels

Inspired by this watercolour note by Jaclyn Carter. I liked the rainbow colours. I used a cheap watercolour set for kids.

I started playing with my Uni Posca markers on a black background and didn't know what I was going to draw. After a couple of shapes, it turned out my drawing was becoming a butterfly. The lettering above the drawing is ancient greek and says 'psychè', which means butterfly or soul.

More Uni Posca markers on a black background. Don't remember where I got the idea but it was about drawing overlapping letters.

I had wiped some left over green liquid watercolour paint off my brush onto a piece of cardstock. I accidentally spilled some water on it, but it was a happy accident. While I added eyes and teeth it became a little forest spirit. It reminds me of fire spirit Calcifer (from Studio Ghibli's 'Howls moving castle').

I spotted colour wheels at Kasia's blog, she was showing how she used colour wheel stamps from Everything Art. I decided to draw my own and play with a colour combination using Caran d'Ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons.

I made this feather drawing using colours from my colour wheel.

I took two ATCs that I had painted with acrylic paint a while ago, and used a white marker to draw/write on them. The light bulbs were inspired by lightbulb themed scrapbook paper Shimelle Laine designed for American Crafts (the True Stories line). These cards will be a nice embellishment for my photo album pages about GLOW.
