I wanted to do another marker design similar to my mandelas but with flowers.
The ideal portable project using my 8x11 watercolor moleskine.
I got the design down first, using rulers, stencils and freehand lines.
Fine point sharpies, faber-castell markers and bic markers are my favorites and used throughout.
I try to use all the colors.
Flowers get to be any color they want in these drawings!
I ended up finishing up the background in a parallel line pattern. Lots of other options I would like to try: watercolor, gray/black patterned background. But this worked at the time.

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
