Doodled Flower & Quote


I have been off the last few days resting a poorly knee and have enjoyed catching up with some colouring.


I started with a simple flower sketch and one of my favourite inspirational quotes.


I decided to use the broad end of my alcohol pens as these never get used so tried something a little different.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend!


Mixed Media Floral Tomorrow


I have a “Mixed Media” project to share today.


I started with a Gelli Print I had made using the Gelli Plate with acrylic paints in shades of pink, red, orange and yellow.


I drew a flower using a Sharpie and coloured in using Spectrum Noir pencils.


I splodged yellow acrylic paint randomly through sections of “That Special Touch” Basket Weave Mask and left to dry completely.  I then repeated the process using red acrylic paint and the Moroccan mask.


The last mask I used was “That Special Touch” Leafy and this time I used 3D Clear Texture Paste and applied through sections.  It is white when it goes on but clear and shiny when it is dry.


I then cut lots of diecuts:

Sizzix Interlocking Circles Border Die in pale yellow (which I inked with orange and red ink randomly and tore roughly into 2 sections)

Sizzix Bigz Decorative Accent w/Flower & Leaves in orange foam (which I again stained with ink)

XCut Alphabet die (which I layered onto red cardstock)

I then arranged all the diecuts and added handwritten words.


I hope you like.  As always, I would love to hear your comments.
