As soon as I saw the challenge at Country View Challenges(Drips and Drops) I knew I would be joining in and started to prepare a page - here. At that stage it was sprayed with a mister to make the Dylusions ink drip down the page. I then added some paint circles with PA Fresco Guacamole, sprayed until they dripped too. Unfortunately I didn't get back to it until this weekend when away at our caravan. I didn't like the circles I had made on top of the first lot of drips.
I covered one of them up with a lattice die and then puzzled over what to do with the other one! I had been doing a crossword in the newspaper with a Pitt pen (I know….just grabbed a pen from my pencil case instead of looking for the biro….disgraceful!)and while stuck on a clue started to doodle in the circle - it came out looking like seeds - then I saw a drip that would make a stalk - one thing led to another and here is my journal page.
The page came together so quickly - the flower is so out of proportion! I had a few Inktense crayons in my pencil case and a water brush, the bird is very similar to one on the coasters on the coffee table. I realised that I had already stuck down the lattice and that the petals would have to look as though they were behind it so I grabbed a piece of paper from a notestack and used it as a template to roughly size the petals! The shading on the flower is done with a 4B pencil.
I had to wait till I came home today to finish it as I knew I had this quote stamp - from Tim's Warehouse District set.
