Welcome to #20 of the Notebook Ideas column! In the last post I mentioned that I would be revisiting items on my list and giving a more in dept look either into my own notebooks/journals or those of others who inspire me. Today the queen of colour Alisa Burke is the subject of my colour loving ^_^
I love Alisa Burke, as a lot of you will know i've taken both her sketchbook delight classes but you can also find some free resources on her blog such as this beautiful colour journal! There are also ideas on using patterns etc if you go nosing through the archives!
I loved this idea so much I have decided to keep my own colour journal.. I haven't got very far but my intention is there hahaa. I definitely need to include a colour wheel because even when Im working with painted backgrounds I struggle with what colours should be used that compliment each other perfectly.
Just look at those lovely layers! I am hoping to use some of my off cuts of shop fabric to inspire me with my colours and patterns but I think I should maybe start with the basics first!
I love these colours! Coral is my colour of the season so this is beautiful ^_^
A great idea to figure out all the colours and shades you can get out of one watercolour pan.
oOooo a mini pink mood board! I love keeping mood boards in my notebooks. I do it quite regularly indeed. Especially for my decorating ideas! I just rip things out of magazines and jam them in an A4 craft notebook.
Think I have to get some paint chips from the DIY place and possibly print out a colour wheel... or find one in a paint brochure if I am lucky. Although I don't think I would glue it in. Maybe attach an envelope in the front so I can use it regularly. Such a fab idea. Cant wait to get more pages done ^_^
