Hello Peeps! Hope you all have had a good weekend. We had a gorgeous day on Saturday and rain all day into the eve on Sunday. Things are finally blooming and budding! Our forsythia bushes have finally blossomed and oh how nice to see all those glorious yellow flowers!
And speaking of flowers I have one last journal page for Art Journal Journey for the theme of "A Single Flower" with guest host Sheila. It's no secret that my favorite flower is the red poppy, and I've painted poppies numerous times (in various colors). I chose to keep this one simple and with a grungy feel. The journal page was inspired by one of Nicole Watson's 30 Minute Art Exercise You Tube Videos:
This began as a mop up page (the turquoise). I added the stenciling (an old Dina Wakley script stencil) then drew in my poppy with a Stabilo All pencil. A dark red, bright red, and touch of orange paint was used to paint the poppy. The red spatters were then added along with the quote from a Dina Wakley stamp set. This photo is much truer to the vibrant color of the flower than the cropped photo above it. I never said I was a photographer;)
And another flower themed project:
