Hi everyone. Happy Friday.
I'm here today with a new page for Sheila's challenge of a Single Flower at Art Journal Journey
This time I created a page that used a flower as an embellishment.
I had this blue background (a Gelli print) in my stash from one of the Creative Jumpstart classes I completed. The lines radiating upward (on it) had me thinking about sunshine. I painted in the rising sun with various warm toned paints, and I also used some watercolor pencils to finish it off
The clouds are some fun acetate stickers I got on Etsy. I used more than half the package making this page, but I love how they worked and got a bit carried away. As they were only a couple of dollars, I think I need to order another package for myself. Smile.
I played around trying to get the bottom of the page to be something I liked. After layering colors and some tissue paper, I finally stamped the heart chain and decided I liked this result. I stamped and cut apart this quote (an ancient stamp but one of my all time favorites) as well as stamping the big flower. I colored and fussy cut the flower also to finish off my page.
The tulips I shared several days ago have really opened up and won't be around much longer.
One of them in the bunch that is a bit more passé has a slightly different color from the rest.
I enjoy watching tulips go through their whole bloom cycle.
I'm guess this means I'm going to need to get another bunch of flowers soon. These tulips won't have petals much longer.
Have a great start to your weekend.
