Art Journaling: Water-solubles


For November’s art journaling class at The Studio, we’ll be playing with water-solubles. This page spread is a mix of Caran D’Ache Neocolor II water-soluble wax crayons, Derwent Inktense pencils and blocks and black pigment pen. It’s an experimental page, and I quite like the blending of the colours, the framing of the colour blocks and text, but if I were to do it again, I’d want to space things a bit better and perhaps play with the depth by intertwining the frames better and adding some drop shadows… I was also considering adding embossing paste squares – but I think that would just be overdoing it a little.

One thought on “Art Journaling: Water-solubles

  1. Lovely, Neil. I love the fresh colours. I have got some Inktense pencils and absolutely love them, and mostly use them for colouring my Zentangle drawings (and now, of course, my Florabundas!). Gorgeous intense colours. I haven’t tried the Neocolor soluble wax crayons. Sounds fun!
