Make It Colourful - Wet, Wet, Wet

Sorry this is late! I thought I scheduled it, but evidently I didn't.

This week's challenge at Make It Colourful is coloring an object that looks wet. I wasn't going to play this week because I thought this was a pretty scary challenge. Then I had an idea for a page in my art journal and I thought I would give it a try. Teamie Barbara shared some helpful tips with the team (don't worry I'll have them in the tips and tricks post tomorrow) and I gave a water drop a try. I'm not totally happy, but it's not bad for a first try. You don't have to be an expert color-er to join in the Make It Colourful - just give it a try!

The image I used is A Time To Relax from Make It Crafty. I made a fairly simple page in my art journal about our family habit of going to the bathroom to find a better attitude. You don't have to "go," it's just a way to take a break.
You can sign up for my birthday candy until August 18th (DT members welcome)!

Happy Crafting!

Jen, I love your idea for your page and it's so true as well....I definitely emerge with a better attitude after a nice long soak in the bath, preferable with a glass of wine, some choccie and watching something frothy on the laptop DVD! lol.

Lovely journal page too, the colouring is really pretty and a great drop of water. CoB

It is a scary challenge Jen but not only did you do the challenge, you did it perfectly! Great journal page.

Great page Jen, love the colours and the eclectic letters. The water drops look fab too great shading.

This scene would make a perfect page for me and my other half. When I need a 'better attitude' or just time to myself I go and have a bath (the family know better than to disturb me when I'm bathing), my other half goes and sits and reads (I don't question what he's doing when he reads I don't really want to know) but as we have energy saving lights all over the house except the bathroom which has fluorescent apparently it's better for reading. I hope your having a great weekend. :-) xx

I love it!
We always call the bathroom the "Library", because it's where we get to do our best reading! (-:
