Documented Life Project Week 14

The first April challenge was: "Watercolors -  It's Water Under The Bridge". The April theme is: "Color Safari - Exploring Inks and Paints".
It's the second week I am up with all the others because I started the Documented Life Project later in March. So I had the hole week to think about and to work on my page. I used two different qualities of papers a really rough one for the water and a plane one for the sky. But my papers are not special watercolor papers. The plane one is form a sketch - block for drawing and the rough one is the back side of an old wallpaper. First I painted on my papers with watercolors - I tried three or for versions for my water until I was happy with one version. Than I stitched the paper together and did some stitching on the water. My pages was to small for my journal so I framed it with another sort of paper - some hand made very rough one in green. I painted the frame with acrylics and gesso and stamped with a sponge paint on my watercolor painting. Then I painted my "Bridge" - It's just a symbolic bridge - over the waters......
