nice to have you here today! I want to share with you my second project for the April challenge Easter and/or Spring over at Country View Challenges!
This time I made an art journal page with handpainted flowers, using watercolors.
Maybe the little girl is waiting for the Easter bunny to come?
This is what I did:
I prepared my page with white Gesso and sketched the tulip, the daffodil and the grape hyacinths slightly onto my page. I painted them with watercolors, and when they were dry I colored the background with very watery blue watercolors. Then I shaded the flowers with a charcoal pencil, added some highlights and doodling with posca pens in brown and white and surrounded my page with black charcoal. I was missing a little something, so I stamped some butterflies and colored them with watercolors.
Now I only had to stamp some background stamps onto my page for more interest and glue down the little girl, a paper doll from Tim Holtz. I really love these paper dolls, they always give your work something special!
Here are some close ups:
That little girl looks so cute, doesn´t she?!
Now it´s your turn to make something Easter or Spring related and share with us at Country View Challenges! You have plenty of time left! And remember - you have the chance to win a 20 £ voucher for the shop! So I hope you will hippedi-hop in 😋.
Thank you for your visit today and happy Easter!
