One of my favorite things to do in my journals is to use book pages in foreign languages as a background for my watercolor paintings. If you would like to see more about how I did the page below, see my post on the Sketchbook Challenge Blog.

summer issue of Pages is about starting out with black on your journal page. We will be preparing some of our journal pages using this technique in my upcoming watercolor workshop, the Colors of Umbria, Keeping a Watercolor Journal, in Orvieto, Italy. There are just a few spots left if you want to join us!

Summer 2014 Issue of Pages. I am putting the finishing touches on some journal paintings that I had started. This is so fun for me because it is like visiting old friends. I am getting them ready to send off to Interweave Studios in Boston to be photo graphed so I want them to look their best! This particular article that I have been working on is about my favorite water-soluble pen. I will tell you about the other articles I have been working on in a following post.

Those of you that have watched my DVD, know that I love to play with water-soluble pens. I don't think that I can pass up a good looking pen. I have so many that I really can't keep track of them. I have been playing around with water-soluble pens for an article that will be in the 2014 summer issue of the PAGES magazine. To organize my pens, I made examples of each one in my watercolor journal. Do you have a pen you love? What is your favorite pen to use in your journals? How do you organize your pens?
