Today I am sharing a couple of framed water colored blooms I made for this month's Power Poppy Challenge~"Frame It Up!"
Both use one of Marcella's images from Flourishes, Lenten Rose. I wanted some practice water coloring. I am definitely still a beginner; but I love the look!
I think this one, in a variety of amethysts and purples is my favorite. I framed it very simply and just used a few pearls for embellishment.
I wasn't as happy with the actual coloring of this one; it became muddied after too much work trying to apply layers of color. So I stopped (good idea!) and then went over some of the blooms with prisma pencils for shading. I also used a sweet bow to "frame" the image...kind of a fun look and adds a bit of whimsy!
Thanks so much for looking and always look forward to your comments! Have a blessed day!
