A Little Flower Power


Today I wanted to get my hand dirty on a project I am working on that has a number of steps to it.  I will post more as I complete it, but here are a few snippets!

First, I took a blank canvas and stenciled a flower pattern with gesso.  The gesso will act as a resist to color when it is applied.



Secondly, I added some color with my Stabilo water soluble Woody's.  I envisioned a fower garden and just randomly colored spots on the canvas.



You can see in this little subsection how the gesso flower pattern shines through.



The artists tools…



Then I took a wet paintbrush and began to blend the water soluble colors together to make a pretty flower palette.



I have an idea of what this will eventually turn into…it will be fun to see if what I start out to create ends up being anything like the finished product!!!
