Flashback Friday: Doodle Flowers #art #ink #mixedmedia

  
So you might have noticed I have been a little obsessed with spring around this time of year. What’s not to love? Warmer winds, greener grasses and all those lovely flowers just starting to bloom! Today’s post shares a little doodle I did a year ago expressing my passion for spring.

Similar to last week’s post, this entry was also inspired by artist Lisa Congdon from her drawing class hosted by CreativebugSketchbook Exploration”. In the last section of her class she explores collage making and adding hand-drawn elements over the top of collage.

My own version incorporates vintage transparent paper which was combined together using acrylic gel matte medium over a light green inked background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Once the background was completely dry, I added hand-drawn flowers inspired by Lisa’s book “100 Ways to Draw a Tulip”. For a final touch, I used Derwent Inktense blocks over the top of the pages that exposed all the wonderful texture lying underneath.

It’s nice to break from complicated drawings and let loose by adding simple drawn elements to a page. After all, my journal is for me and is supposed to be fun, not serious artwork intended for museums. I encourage you to check out some of Lisa’s books and classes. It’s always good to find new sources of inspiration. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this entry.

Until next post – Denielle
