March Sketchbook Challenge-"Spilling Over"
The theme for this month's Sketchbook Challenge is "Spilling Over." Here is my journal page.
With our early spring, the blossoms and leaves are going crazy, the bluebirds are investigating the birdhouses, and it was easy to create a page for the theme.
This is watercolor paper with collaged tissue paper, flowers from an old quilting calendar, my colored pencil sketch of the bluebird, and other hidden elements in layers. The big orange daffodil center is a seal from a wine bottle. I have gessoed over some of the collage, and then added colored pencil.
I also figured out that my two previous entries for January and February were only on my own Flickr page, not the group challenge page. So I added all three at one time today.
