What’s better to draw on a rainy day than flowers. And since Art-Journal-Journey has a new challenge for July F*l*o*W*e*R P*o*w*e*r, I thought I would give it a try. One revelation in making this page was the messier I got, the better the page looked. Loose scribble and loose brush strokes provided me with much more dimension. The letting go attitude made a much prettier page for me than if I had painstakingly tried to draw each flower. I am not a realistic painter, never have been and really don’t want to be. This blousy style suits me so well and is a get lost in the process technique for me. But it was so soothing to just play on this page. I am linking up to AJJ, take a visit, there is some fantastic work on this challenge blog from all over the blogging globe. Enjoy.
below is a little slide show of the process. Overall stamped page made the flower cutouts, green page was the background in my art journal already there, the rest you can see. Love the moonlight gellis and their rich colors….
