This week is the first real spring week by us, even warmer then usual, so I decided to put my flower boxes outside. As I have no garden, they sit on my window frame. I bought some nice bulbs planted them and with my patience seems very hard to wait what comes out. So I brainstormed in my art journal:
Surrealistic, maybe not, love the contrast.
I was beginning with a layer of ink to colorize some paper: magenta and gold.
Then I added my first flower stencil layer with acrylic, I wanted to have some small flowers, so I cut my own stencil, stupid me from paper (though I would not be able to hand-cut from plastic this small pattern), so nicely had to say good bye to it after I finished.
But as I am a layer girl, I needed to have some extra. So I added some texture and white washed the background:
Now that’s more like me. Satisfied I took one of my favorite flower stencils: the “poppies” took the silhouette and painted the background with acrylics: persian blue and phthalo green. Added the text and outlined with Molotow marker. Tadaah:
Do you have a garden? How does it look like nowadays?
