A Second Look on the Second of April


Grab button for Second on the 2nd

This month I'm sharing a second look at a journal page I did.....way back in 2012.

New art journal page.

Hope everybody had a creative weekend.  The DH and I took the "playhouse" out for a maiden trip over the weekend.  We went up to Tehacahpi, a small mountain township about an hour from here. Kids and Grand kids came up and spent Saturday night with us.  While waiting for them to arrive I got out my art journal and started playing.  I drew it first with a black felt pen.  I used some water color felt pens to color it in, then took a damp paint brush and ran the colors outward, crating the background colors.  Once it was dry I add a few more details, like the stitching marks, loops around the flowers and some curly cues.  It was a rather quick and easy page to do and I really enjoyed the quiet time before the troops arrived.
 Thanks for stopping by for a second look.

  1. It sounds ideal - sitting in your playhouse crafting while waiting for your family to arrive. Hope you had a wonderful time and your page is beautiful Krisha. Such beautiful colours. Barbxx

  2. I had to read this twice, but the phrase "maiden trip" gave it away that this was truly a second look at a post from the past. This is wonderful and I'm always amazed at your doodles and felt pen coloring. This is probably a very good choice for travel, too. No glue to spill and nothing that needs to be adhered. It's a wonderful page.

    So glad you took time to share this wonderful second look on the 2nd. It was definitely new to me.

  3. That's a lovely journal page and well worth showing again. Spring is blooming here, so that makes it very fitting. Have a nice weekend, hugs, Valerie

  4. This really is fabulous Krisha! Such beautiful colours and drawing! Quiet time spent before visitors arrive sounds good too! Hugs, Chrisx

  5. Very sweet journal page...glad you reshared this one.

  6. Love your art journal page!
