It's time for Papertrey Ink June blog hop and I have a watercolored piece today. I almost always forget to make something ahead of time, despite the fact that Nichole always puts up the inspiration picture as soon as the new release is done!
This month I had decided to play along ..come rain or shine ! The shoes in the inspiration picture are just so adorable and I almost went for a literal translation ..paint some shoes with a flower..but then I decided to challenge myself a bit and read between the picture..so to say..and here is what I came up with.
A negative painting of sorts, I splashed some color to start with and as it dried, added more glazes and started to carve the flower by adding more darks. I do have a video on negative painting which explains this technique a little more in detail. Here is the link..negative painting.
I was inspired primarily by the orange flower and decided to keep the stripes pretty subtle. Here is a closer look...
The Sentiment stamp is by PTI -Half and Half and the subtle flowers in the background are from PTI- Year of flowers.
Also sharing with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge- anything goes
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!
