Watercolor Flowers with Ink

I prepared the watercolor blobs ahead of time and took them with on a long car ride.  I added the black lines with a Pilot Varsity Fountain Penand some Sakura Pigma pens.


This was a big weekend!  We took our first car trip with baby Desmond to Chicago and we threw a baby shower for my brother and his wife, who are due in September.  I'm so happy that they will be having a baby also and Desmond will be able to grow up with a cousin his age.  We also celebrated my mom's retirement and cousin's graduation.

Also, you may have heard about the same-sex marriage ban being overturned in Wisconsin.  My sisters-in-law got legally married this weekend!  They had a commitment ceremony several years ago, but now it is legal too.  Their story made it on the news and you can read it here.

These gelli print collages make me want to get out my Gelli plates to make some papers.

I love the contrast between the bright watercolors and black inky lines in these artworks.

I finished a new edition of my E-Zine called Art Journaling with Kids.  You can download it from my store on TPT.

I love the contrast of these flowers. Did you draw the shapes out first or did you use the watercolour as inspiration? I am always so stumped when it comes to which way round to do it! :)

(and belated congrats on your sisters-in-laws! whoop!)

I did not draw the shapes first. I just painted the blobs of watercolor and then when it dried I added the ink. Thanks for finding and stopping by my blog!
