I have been playing with my water color pencils from Prima again :)
Prima have this beautiful mood board this month and it really inspired me to draw and color on my background.
I drew my favorite flower, dahlia. Since I wanted the flower and watercolor splashes to really stand out on the layout I went with a clean and simple style.
I didn't have anything brass colored so I used my copper and gold colors on the mesh tape and the stars.
The blue flower was originally white but I colored it with acrylic paint and the beautiful chipboard title from 2Crafty I let stay natural since I loved the contrast between the wood, the metal and the watercolor.
Here you can see just the flower. I sketched it first and the used a waterproof black pen from Faber Castell. The water splashes are also made with watercolor pencils. I simply shaved of some color and mixed it with water and the used a brush to splash.¨
