It all started when I showed my daughter’s friend my Flickr Favorites while on vacation. This young lady was so cute, she liked so many pictures she saw on my Flickr Favorite Photostream. She has seen all.of.my.work, so she’s got a good sense of what I can do and what I like. She spotted this picture from Margaret Storer-Roche and turned to me and said, “Wow, you should do something like this”. I looked at it and thought “Yeah, I should….that’d be fun”.
So, I grabbed my favorite floral stencils. Then picked out some primary colors from my watercolor pencil stash and went to work.
I like the look of watercolors with black and white uniform patterns included.
Referred to my Doodle Directory many times for ideas while filling in this part.
Had an idea to zentangle up the inside of the Rainbow rings…..but I’ve since scratched that thought.
Must practice more with those watercolor pencils….wanted to have a lot of blue in that lower-right flower,
this isn’t exactly the look I was after. Ahhh well!
This was a blast to make!! A bLaSt!! Free-handed the leaves and the lower blue flowers. I have to admit, I am more drawn to the precise-ness of the stencils though.
To make one for yourself all you need is:
- A compass
- Good Black fine point permanent marker
- Watercolor pencils
- A stencil or two
- Your Imagination
