Leftover Paint

I don't like to waste paint, so before I rinse my brush off between colors, I dab it onto a page in a little notebook. After the page is filled with color I draw over it. 

I got the notebook at the swap meet. The pages were actually a bit too thin so I glued three pages together.

I saw a commercial while watching the Olympics where people struggle to do what they can't . . . until they finally can. So inspiring.






These are called Paint Over Pens. I use them a lot on these pages because they really do "paint over". You can get them on Amazon for $10.75.  Jane recently came out with a new color line, and I really want them, but they're hard to get right now.

Aunty, they're not watercolor, but not sure what they're made of. I used my fountain pen with carbon ink to outline . . . it's my fave.

Thanks Izsmom!

I agree, Chet!!

LOL, Kay.

Thanks Kat.

Dd, I always think of her when I draw mermaids . . . and I think of you when I do unicorns.
