Watercolour girls

I have discovered watercolours again! First with the smudges that I make faces of in my new diary, and now I'm also starting a new "series", if you can call it that, of watercolour girls. I have been sketching a lot of these in the last weeks and now I'm trying them out on watercolour paper. Here's the first one:

I have to try out some things for the background, not sure whether I'll leave it like this, but I had fun making this, and I'm sure more will follow, since it consists of two of my absolute favorite things: making faces and using quotes :-)

Last week I was at the coast with the kids and my mother, in a place with no internet. So I didn't make a blogpost. So here's my diary-spreads from the last two weeks:

Week 4 started out like this:

and turned into this:

And week 5 started like this:

I have now gotten into the habit of writing a few lines about my day every day, and I really enjoy reading back through it. I also feel these spreads are becoming more "me". Quotes are creeping in, and I'm trying out different things. We'll see where it ends ....

I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday and will have a look at everyone's blogs this weekend. For the last time this month, since the summer holidays started and I'm going offline for a few weeks to enjoy the time together with family.

I'll leave you with some (actually a lot of!) funnies :-)

And the other ones ....

Thanks so much for your visit and for leaving such lovely comments. I wish you a wonderful day, and a weekend to remember (in a good way of course!).

Take care and I'll be back in a few weeks ♥ ♥ ♥
