may flowers #8 & #9

Catching up on my flower power for Lori Moon's month long challenge.  Still working in my art journal and playing with techniques:



Both of these floral pages used tissue paper.  The top one is my first attempt to print on tissue paper and, surprisingly, it worked great....I used a photo of my dahlias with some words and the bright flowers are from a magazine I think.  The lower one uses some beautiful floral printed tissue paper I received in a swap - I thought it was kind of bright, so in my toning it down, I almost totally obscured the flower part so brought it back a bit with oil pastels.

  1. Looks like you are having fun. Tissue paper is very versatile for stamping and transferring to canvas, too, which I use a lot! Valerie

  3. I am really enjoying the splotches of paint on the second piece, and the washi tape stuck in there too! Looks like you had a good time playing with your flowers. xox
