Today I watched Tracy from Mixed Media Monday.. Tracy was having awful trouble with the Ustream today.. After the stream, we found out her teenage son was downloading a movie and that is why Ustream kept cutting out. Oh dear, bet there was a few words said.. I really liked the little bit I did see. It was enough to get me all inspired to do some pod type flowers. Tracy's ended up being more Dr Seuss like.
I am not sure what mine are. I just had fun with colours and trying to blend them. I used all DecoArt Media line paints today, a few of them too.. Background was Cobalt Turquoise Hue around the edge. Then I mixed Cobalt Teal Hue with Titan Buff to get the lighter blue. For the flower pod thingies. I used Primary Magenta and Quinacridone Violet and blended them together. Need to practice my blending more. Made some circles at the edges just because I can.. Paint pen for the stems with spots done with the signo white pen. Put highlights here and there with more of the white pen and around the border to blend it in. Went around the flowers with the Stabilo black pencil and then with a waterbrush. With the background to give it more interest, I used the Andy Skinner stencil Whirlpool with my round blending tool and Distress ink in Peacock feathers. France Papillon's design cube yep little spot side used today..
I realised flicking through my Moleskine Art Journal so far, that I had not written in this Art journal yet. I have been using print outs from my computer for the quotes. So thought it was time I did write in it today.
