A new friend

There’s a new challenge up at ARTastic! And as usual it’s SO inspirational!! This time the inspiration piece is made by a mixed media artist called Liza Posar and the criteria is handmade flowers. I loved this challenge! Both the inspiration piece and the criteria. Of course I went for doodled and painted flowers! :)
I used a lot of mist, Pan Pastel and acrylic paint on the background. The grass is made with acrylic paint on a template. Some of the flowers are cut out from patterned papers but the three biggest are doodled. They are colored with Neo Color II and acrylic paint. Some of the flowers that I cut out got the same treatment. The leaves are doodled and cut out. The frame around the picture is doodled, cut out and colored with Dylusions Ink.
Here are some close ups:
This was so fun to make that I really recommend you to try it out! Or to create some other kinds of handmade flowers and play along!! You will find a lot of inspiration here by looking at the other DT examples. :)
Thanks for popping by! Take care!
