Messy, messy fun in the art journal - wanted to try my hand at fingerpainting flowers. Wait for it - - "try my hand at fingerpainting" - har har!! I'll be here all week . . .
The top page is meant to look like a patch of orange poppies on a sunny day. However, my husband says they look like a bunch of peaches with their pits showing - sigh. I believe a bit more success was met with the second attempt.
Here is my half-dried out palette - once the painted flower designs were dry and trimmed down for the journal, I decided to cut up the remaining bits into small strips for use on future projects -
The idea for fingerpainting flowers came from a recent Alisa Burke post where she made amazing work of her flowers -
The whole point is to try something new - It was fun, messy and quick - definitely something to attempt again on another day!
