5 Things I am Tending (Sketch and Watercolor Art Journaling)

Once upon a time, I took an on-line class with Junelle Jacobsen. Her style of art journaling features sketching, water coloring, doodling and paper piecing. I enjoyed it a lot and wanted to give the style a try as I return to a focus on art journaling. When I took the class, I made several clothes line pages and that seemed like a good starting point. I journaled first - describing five things I was tending in my life that day. And then I sketched a clothes line with clothes and objects to represent these things. I sketched using the stabilo all pencil and then added water colors. I'm very happy with how it turned out!
I also took a little bit of time to finish this page:
I had sketched it out during Junelle's class but never completed the painting or journaling. It was very relaxing and fun to do. I can definitely see myself continuing with this style of art journaling.

Full of freshness and colour with a touch of whimsy, and lovely to the eye. I have taken Junelle's classes too, and enjoyed them. (There is a new Spring one coming soon. Just sayin').

Love the colours of the pages. I have swithered about taking one of her classes but didn't have the time to devote to it. Glad you're enjoying the journaling again.

I'm not familiar with Junelle so I will have to find out more about her. I love your pages and this style of art journaling, it's
an interesting idea to write about 5 things you are tending in your life. I look forward to seeing more of your pages.
