April 7 Entry in Roz's 2016 Fake Journal

Above: 16 x 10 inch watercolor and brush pen sketch on

Day sever of International Fake Journal Month brings more experiments with the watercolor board. (And sometimes it's difficult to stop the fake journal from overlapping a little with the real life.)

I'm using up the last of my non-floral Brilliance. I'm sick at heart that they decided to add a fragrance to my favorite rubberstamp ink.

I love the colors in this. Don't know why they feel the need to ad fragrance to any art materials.
