Spring has sprung here in Australia and I am loving all the flowers and colour in my garden. So decided to paint some in my Molskine art journal. 

I used the DecoArt Americana paints in Petal pink, Vivid Violet and Wild Orchid in my first layer. Then I used Wisteria with the Andy Skinner stencil Tornado and a make up sponge. I used one side of the stencil and moved it across the page on both sides. Then I drew in my flowers overlapping the petals and painted them in a layer of DecoArt Media line Gesso. Then painted over them in Sea Breeze such a lovely blue they really popped. I did a swish of Primary Yellow in the middle of the flowers over the Gesso then I added more Gesso to blend it in. I doodled flower stems in and went around the flowers in black pen adding stamens to my flowers and filling in bits here and there with my Signo white pen. The stamping was with a tiny set of stamps I have from Studio G. Bloom where you are planted, seemed the perfect quote for this page. Went around the edges of the pages to frame it with my blending tool and the Momento black ink. 

I am popping this in the link over at Balzer Designs and over at 
Mix it Monthly its Mixed media flowers this month. 

Have a great day
Sandy :)
