Documented Life Project April 5 (Week # 14) Using Watercolors (Part I)!

I am back today with the art journaling portion of my Documented Life Project March 5 (Week #14) layout. The new April theme and art challenge/journal prompt for this week is:

April Theme
Color Safari (Exploring Inks & Paints)
April 4th
Art Challenge: Watercolors
Journal Prompt: It's Water Under the Bridge

For this challenge, I simply wanted to use a color palette that you would normally associate with water & bridges (ie blue, green, gray, brown/rust, white).

Documented Life Project April 5 (Week #14)

I started with a muli-colored blue-based watercolor background using my Peerless watercolors & added some champagne extreme glitter paint for a shimmery, water effect.

Next, I created doodles & flowers with a black Faber-Castell Pitt Pen, filled in with watercolors and outlined with white Tulip puffy paint. I then added some black stitching, stamping, messy journaling, outlines, and other details to finalize my layout. Here is how it looks in my Filofax:
