More art journal pages

These pages are a bit juvenile but I like them. They're so bright and cheerful. We can all use more cheer in our life! I used Caran d'ache watercolor crayons to color these pages. I love Caran d'ache watercolor crayons so much I bought the biggest set they make. 126 glorious colors! One of the best tips I learned for working with these crayons is to spread the color with a damp sponge rather than a paint brush. It works great and you don't have to get your page so wet. I cut the pages into the flower and leaf shapes. It's just a bit of joy in the middle of my journal. You can't tell from the pictures but this is a really large journal. About 14 x 18 inches. It's a challenge for me to work in a journal this big. But I'm always up for a challenge!
