Here's a little video to show you a simple technique for creating groovy planets. Watch here or pop over to Vimeo. You'll need a pen or pencil, water, a brush and watercolor or gouache paints. The video is 3 minutes long.
These little circles would be fun to incorporate on your next art journal page. You could use them for a brainstorming session or tuck words neatly inside.

I'm teaching two online workshops: Watercolor Playground, an introduction to abstract watercolor painting, and Painted Paper Paradise, a workshop about creating interesting visual patterns in watercolor or gouache... plus several lessons about sewing paper.
Check out these renditions of the watercolor planets technique: Live. Grow. Nourish. Create.
