Hello and welcome to Paint Party Friday!
Something I wanted to do for a long time is to start a nature art journal. What stopped me, you ask? Well.......maybe the fear to mess up some of the pages, as my drawing skills aren't perfect? Or not finding the "right" book with thicker, good quality paper, that might take the abuse of working with watercolor pencils? Maybe stopping somewhere in the middle, lacking ideas of what to draw?
In the end it doesn't matter, what kept me from it, as I finally ordered a journal and started with page one. The A5 journal has 144 pages of 180g/m² paper and is supposed to be a "mixed media journal", as the description said. So here's my first page, about the garden birds and how I feed fatballs to them.
