Some Watercolor Doodling Fun

I thought I would share this lovely from my mixed media journal...

I was procrastinating working on something else that needed to be done. So what do I do? I pick up a paint brush and my Grumbacher opaque watercolors and paint some flowers. They are kind of sort of like coneflowers, but not... 

Then I added a lovely bluish-purpleish background around the flowers and some paint splatters in a darker blue color. 

A few weeks later I finally got around to adding some journaling and doodling around the flowers. I'm loving this quote lately. Even if my words are crooked on the piece. The doodling was done with ultra fine point Sharpie. 

I just love those fun splatters! The colors from the Grumbacher opaque watercolors are so beautiful and bright! Definitely my favorite watercolors so far! Oh... this is not a sponsored post in any way. I just love these watercolors and like sharing the products I use. 

So what do you do when you procrastinate? Do you pick up watercolors and just start playing around?
