Les Fleurs

I've been working on a couple of journal pages for my dear friend MaryAnn. Here is one of them.

I love the colour combination of the lime yellowy green and the pinks and reds. I don't know if there is more vibrancy than such a combination!

"The Earth laughs in flowers" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here is a close-up of some of the penwork detail. This was probably the funnest part of building this piece.
Materials used:
- watercolour paints
- magazine cutouts
- acrylic paint (for the flower)
- white Sakura gel pen
- Papermate Liquid Flair - black
- Ink and various caps to create the circles

Now THAT is mixed media!


  1. Loving this! It's so alive with color that it's vibrating. Great positive energy here.

  2. Delicious "eye candy" that jolts the creative juices into motion: much needed.
