“I am periwinkle” Poem Page

A new page in my watercolor journal. I’m calling them Poem Pages. The journaling derives from a writing assignment having to do with a favorite color and “I am” statements. The poem is written on watercolor paper and then washed in a light to medium tone. The statements are cut out and perhaps rearranged into a poetic collection. From there is is a matter of rewriting the poem in pen and doing some outlining of the handwriting to make it pop. I think it looks cooler in person than in the pix, plus it’s very overcast here today so not a lot of light in the photography station (ha! my dining chair in the kitchen!). Pick your favorite anything, write out what it’s like to be it, and make a poem today in your journal. This exercise will appear as Class Three in Art Journaling at Whim So Doodle in St. Pete, FL sometime in July.
