A Peerless Watercolor Palette - How to

How I made a Peerless watercolor palette.

I cut a piece of watercolor paper and folded it in half.  I cut a piece of Yupo paper and used Washi tape to stick it in the fold.  This yupo will serve as a mixing palette and keep the colors from blending across the page.  

I used a circle punch to create the circles (but you could cut squares or small strips).  I used a water brush beside each circle to demo what the color looks like.

For fun I painted balloons in rainbow colors (from the palette) on the front.  Finally the palette slips into the pocket on my moleskine sketchbook, so all I need is a pen and a waterbrush and I'm ready to journal.
