We've all seen these flower girls everywhere on the internet. I wanted a little piece of the sunshine for myself, so I took a piece of a discarded cereal box and gessoed it up.
Next, I scrunched and layered tissue paper with gel medium. If you click on the image to enlarge, you can see the texture involved. After that dried, I started laying down some acrylic paint in happy colors. I sketched and painted the flower, flicked a little more paint and then doodled around the edges with black and white Sharpie poster paint markers (which I love). The finished piece is 8.5" x 11".
Hope your week is full of some crafty folly.
