Today I was painting in my Moleskine art journal and using all my favourite colours at the moment. DecoArt Americana Orange Flame, Sea Breeze, Lemon Yellow and this time I added some Petal Pink.
I started by using some book paper for the flower centres. I just cut round circles and of course there had to be three. I also cut some loopy, swirly cut outs and glued 2 of those on. I painted the centres of the flowers orange and then got my finger in some white paint and swirled. Did the same thing with the loopy cut outs. I then brushed on the background in the Lemon yellow and the Sea Breeze. Roughly drew some flower petals and painted inside them in pink. I went around the petals with the stabillo pencil adding water to darken and then some doodling with black pen and a Unibal signo white pen. I grabbed some stencils and added some more of the Orange Flame and then some little circles with a Finibar stencil in Snow (Titanium) White. I added some more doodling around some of the stenciling in pens, just to pop them a bit. I was going to glue the words on with one of my pre printed quotes but thought this time I would write it on. So on went the words. Do more of what you love.
