Ok, I'll admit it, I really don't know how to draw. I love hand drawn flowers but just can't do it. After applying gesso to the index card, I added random watercolored circles of yellow, orange, red and purple. Then I drew in green stems and leaves at the bottom and around the "flowers". Once all those dried, I added blue in the open areas. Then I used various pens to outline the different flowers. I spritzed the card with a little bit of water to help the colors/paint blend into each other. (If you like this piece, check out this LINK to purchase a blouse with this design. My designs are for sale at VIDA.)
I've wanted to draw these type of flowers for awhile and I thought they would make a great wallpaper so I did it. I love how it turned out! I used watercolor pens to color in the flowers and once the flowers were done, I drew the blue pen on my craft mat and added water.
This one started as a little hilltop, blue sky & green grass. Then I added the stamped trees...ok...it's a little boring, but it's a landscape. Then I got this great idea to draw and attach toes as if someone is sitting back, legs stretched and gazing at the beautiful landscape. I thought it was hilarious!!
It's not too late to join in the Index Card A Day challenge. It goes on for 61 days originally to start on June 1st and go through July, but technically you can start anytime (which is what I did).
