Spring Sketches

Happy Friday to all
I've been so inspired by Spring and the beautiful colors that this season brings in.These days I'm busy playing with my watercolors.

 Today I finished painting her. This is my first time painting a mermaid. I've also added a quote from Walt Disney: "All our dreams can come TRUE if we have the COURAGE to pursue them."

This is a doodle that I did couple of months ago. But I guess I had to wait for Spring to get the inspiration to add color to it.

  I LOVE adding quotes to my pages and the quote on this one says: "No one can do it for you... Choose to use your own wings." 

Linking my page to PaintPartyFriday and ArtJournalEverday
If you go to the Art Journal Everyday link you can see my journal page there. I did Julie's 'limit to 10 supplies' challenge and this week she has included my page too on her blog. I'm so happy and thrilled to have tried her challenge. Her blog and art are one of the major inspiring elements that I had/have when I started my creative journey almost 3 years ago.
Happy Memorial Weekend to all
Thank you for your encouragement
