A sense ~ less entry...

I just recently purchased a Moleskine and have been using it for personal writing and illustrations. Looking through the pages I feel very conservative with my pages, so I wanted to create this challenge in my journal, knowing whatever the outcome, it most likely wouldn't be like the other pages, plain and simple.
I started out using a green paint that, I question why it is even among my paints being that it is so un~me...it felt liberating to use a color I am not too comfortable with. Once the pages where painted I added a white piece of watercolors paper to the center. I then did a drawing with my eyes closed. I then used markers to color in the drawing, a medium I find a bit challenging to begin with. Next, I added a few more bold colors with crayons. Then, I worked in a little more paint, added a little collage, some thoughtless writing, more crayons, more paint, and called it done!
As I created this piece I let my thoughts go...not grabbing onto any one thought for more than a second. It was completely quiet and I cannot smell or taste anything due to a lingering cold, making this challenge a little easier!
I hope everyone is having a great time with these challenges! We are thrilled with all of the wonderful work that everyone is creating! Thank you!

This is wonderful! So full of whimsy. I also found this week's topic easier to tackle with a lingering head cold.
