LOVE is all we need

Hi there,
I've been playing with simple watercolor sketches lately, and I thought I should create a journal spread in watercolor too. Some splashes of sweet colors will do for a start :). Here is what I ended up with;


 A few color splashes, minimal collage and doodling. I glued down tissue paper hearts onto the gentleman and wrote 'AWE' above him. He's definitely a lost man!. LOVE how my watercolor pom poms set the overall mood for my pages. A fun party, couple's dancing and lots of LOVE :). I traced the dancing couple from '150 Silhouette Design Book' onto an old storybook page. 

Added a couple of cupcake wraps for her skirt. Wrote bold letters with a maroon sharpie and scribble love quotes with a black pen. 

That's it. Simple pages made me happy too :). See you soon. 
Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Linda!. It was a bit odd to write those long letters, though :). But I just have to write something really simple & cute nonetheless. Hugs.
