I filled the petals of a flower with versions of Betweed. The center, berries and first layer of petals are coloured with Prismacolour pencil crayons. Now that it is finished it looks sort of Christmasy.
I used Beanious by Abbey Gray and did not follow the instructions too well so it looks a little different than it should. I used Onion Drops by Shasta Garcia, Wind Farm by Margaret Bremner as well as Printempts and Pokeleaf. The colour is with Derwent watercolour pencil crayons.
These are some flower ideas from a painting by Ann Marie Irvine that I saw on Pinterest. I used Tom Bow markers and a Stabilo pen for the colour and found out that they are not permanent like the Pigma Micron Pens are. I will try this technique again using some form of permanent colour.
My friend, Diane Boyko gave me this tile a few months ago. She had impressed some purple dye from some leaves from her garden onto the paper. I finally got around to tangling on it. I added some flowers, leaves and circles, tangled in the circles then added some pencil crayon in greens and yellows for the leaves. The outer edges were softened with a cream coloured pencil crayon then I used a blender pencil on over that. Thanks for the tile Diane.
This is a Zentangle I did at the Wednesday Painters Group that I recently joined. I was busy that day so only have an hour and a half to spend there so did the Zentangling then coloured the flower petals this morning.
I bought a new printer yesterday and the scanned Zentangle may be a little sharper??? I used a brown Pigma micron pen for some of the colour, some brown and tan watercolour pencil crayons and some watercolour paints for the colour.
I am trying to create a nice birthday card for my son, Keith. I will try again. I used an acrylic ink wash background then added road salt. I have some new salt - starburst salt that I will be trying soon.
