Today I want to share another page for Aimeslee's Flower challenge at Art Journal Journey. I had no idea where this page was going to go, so I started by tracing circles with a stencil and a Sharpie.
I made this page in a bound journal. I decided I wanted some color, so a few of the circles became orange. I then took a similar sized paper punch and punched out the circles from a book page with Japanese printing. I die cut the big flowers from orange and pink cardstock and used black pen and pink marker on them. It was only then I decided the background needed color so I used pink watercolor paint to give it a bit of a pop.
I added the house image and the 2 TH little girls. Once I did that I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use for my quote. To finish off my page I used some felt birds (which needed a bit of enhancing) and some flower shaped sequins, both from my stash.
And there you have it. It’s a mostly rainy week so far for me, but I am having lots of art and reading time 😀, not really a lot of gardening time. Yet I know the plants are just loving this good soaking. When the sun comes back out, I know things are going to grow like crazy. Thanks for stopping by my blog .
