Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday to you.
And since it's been 2 weeks since the last Try It on Tuesday challenge, it is time for a new topic. Thank you to all of you who joined us for our Make It Feminine theme.
This time our theme is
My art piece is another journal page that is made on a piece of cardboard that was left over when I finished off a pad of paper. I painted the background with some color, and then I inked it over with some brown ink. I used some white gesso and a brush to hand paint in the circles that fill the background.
I like to pick garden flowers and bring them inside, so that was my inspiration for today's summer blooms page. I drew the vase, and then to give it a mosaic look, I cut little triangles out of paper and glued them down. I also covered my vase in some glossy accents to give it a shiny, more porcelain look.
The flowers are hand drawn, painted with some bright colors, and then outlined with a stabilo pencil. I did use a wet brush to smudge those Stabilo lines a bit. I also noticed some of my painted petals show a few cracks, which although unintended, I really like. I used a paint pen to draw in the stems and leaves, and I did not outline those to give some contrast between the leaves and the flowers.
I created a table top using a die cut which I painted with bright colors and since the die cut didn't make it all across the page, I added a piece of washi tape to anchor it. Finally I used some old rub ones to create my saying. I didn't quite space things as perfectly as I would have liked, so the word "in" was put down on the bottom of the page.
Our Summer Blooms challenge at Try It On Tuesday runs for the next 2 weeks. We accept all types and styles of art, as long as you stick to the challenge. And don't forget to check out the art of the other design team members. There are some beautiful summer blooms there for your inspiration.
I'm excited to see all the summer blooms that people share with us.
Thanks for visiting.
