Earth Laughs In Flowers

Used some super bright color to complete challenge at Lime Citron

Look at those colors!!!

I started by painting/ spraying color along with water in the shape of flowers and leaves.  I used a darker orange for the center.

Drew on flower and leaves detail, unfortunately I didn't use the right kind of pen it runs when water is sprayed on it.  I like how the color is outside and inside the lines.

I fuzzy cut around the hibiscus and tucked in paper panels.  Next add some texture with distress ink and stencil, stamp with texture stamps and archival ink.  Around flowers and paper panels I painted alchemy deep waters and rusty red, then sprayed with water to blur edges.   So BRIGHT!
Darken the edges of paper panels with rust paste, next splatter with white and gold acrylic paint.  I water down the paint so it splatters easier.

Next emboss postcard edge and frame with gold embossing enamel and paint bumble bee with alchemy black berry.  Layer onto layout, finally I added some beads on postcard edge and on bumble bee but only on the portion in frame.

I really like how the flowers turned out and that purple water mark.  I think the bumble bee is too dark maybe should have painted white.

So bright I really like it, maybe its time to start using more bright colors.  This is why I like challenges makes you work outside your creative box.

I really like white space it is always my favorite parts on a layout.

All those layers make so much texture.

Here's to working outside your creative box.
