Hello everyone! It's been very hot in the South-East of England this summer and my cabin is a lovely cool, shady place, so I have been spending a lot of my spare time hiding in there messing about with paints. I've been trying out new techniques and I'm into these flower pages at the moment.
I started by scribbling random colours (in this case Distress Crayons) on a journal page and then blending them with a water brush.
I added scraps of book pages and some stickers that I made a while ago.
Next I drew a simple flower with a black Stabilo pencil.
I coloured the petals and leaves with Distress Crayons, then went over with the water brush. You automatically get some lovely shading from the Stabilo this way.
I painted some black and white patches with my fingers, using acrylic paints.
Next I used some background stamps, both on the actual background as well as the petals.
Lastly I added some gold paint splatter, white doodling and a quote sticker.
I really hope you like it!
Until next time!
