I'm interested in trying new idea for Forget Me Not and it's water colour! I never learn to paint or draw through education so I know my technique and knowledge in the proper design is not that great. But I love stationery and cute drawings and I'm definitely interested in water colour.
I have a daily journal by Frankie Magazine and it has such a cute and beautiful design. One of my treasured purchase that I enjoy everyday. Some of the illustrations are done by water colour and they inspire me to do similar thing.
Here are some photos of the journal :

They're so cute right? Anyway, a friend of mine named Hans also inspire me. He did a water color design with Photoshop when he did a job for my bro-in-law cafe Brownbag. He taught me a bit but I definitely need more practise. It's hard to do water color in Photoshop =/
His girlfriend did a beautiful job with the real water color paint and she encourages me to try it first. So equipped with the beginner's water color tools : some paints and brush, I gave it a try. This is what I came up with.
The bird is created with water color paint, scanned and edited in Photoshop.
Please don't laugh at it >.< I know it looks like a kindergarten's work =D but surprisingly, I like it! I definitely want to learn more about it and try it again. I hope I will have the time to do it since we're always overwhelmed with work. Doing the drawing makes me calm and peaceful.
