Flower journal

I have been using the journal that I made to make quick sketches & watercolours. I really love the way the pages are slightly different sizes & their softly torn edges.

I used a Berol water-soluble pen for sketching, this enables me to soften some of the lines later on using a brush & plain water.

The sketch below was also sketched using a water-soluble pen & then watercolour was added.

By the way, the reason the pages are different sizes is because I didn't fold the paper very accurately - but, I think it gives my journal character!


  1. I really love the black and white ones. So beautiful! And I think it's a good thing that there is variation in paper sizes: every single piece of art is even more unique because of that!

  2. I love love the picture with the watercolor. So beautiful. Erica you have a wonderful way with words. So much talent.
