Hi everyone. One way for me to escape this winter weather was to make a mixed media journal page with flowers. Flowers are definitely one of my favorite things. And getting inspired when the temperatures were well below zero and the wind and snow were blowing was an adventure in itself.
So I am linking up my page to Try It On Tuesday which just started their new theme of my favorite things. And I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey where the latest theme is New Year: New Adventures.
To make my page is started with this bright Gelli print from my stash. Then I draw some daises with a Sharpie.I added the white paint, and then made their centers from bits of paper tape. I outlined the flowers with a black Stabilo pencil before using a slightly wet paintbrush over that outline. Then I added some little sticky gemstones in the centers and made stems and leaves from some thin paper tape. After stamping the quote a few times, I used a piece of printed paper to make the border on the edge, I finished off the border with a black Sharpie and also some white pen makes to make the little dots in each scallop.
Here's a close up of the flowers so you can see their centers better, as well as their paper tape and stapled stems.
We are having a little warm up here so stepping outside feels good! I don't mind a little cold I just don't like deep freeze cold.
And tomorrow they say rain, not snow!
Happy day everyone.
