Art journal doodle flowers....

In my recent release of stamps and stencils for PaperArtsy (you can see them HERE and HERE) I designed a big loose flower and matching stencil:


I planned to use them on a journal page and one of my 'clean your paintbrush and use up the paint' 'patchwork' pages seemed ideal:

I started by adding the flower stamp.

Then I added stencilled flowers in pale colours - making sure that the stencil IS UP THE RIGHT WAY!!... or the stamped image won't fit over the top! (not going to lie - I found that out the hard way on another project lol)

Here are the stencilled flowers with the line image stamped over the top...

I used a black pen to colour the background - I found this easier/quicker than using paint - this isolates and defines the doodled flowers...

I stamped the flower image onto book text and added pieces of this to the page... I finished the page with some white and gold pen doodles..

Really happy with how the flower stamp and coordinating stencil work together... I think this is going to be used often! 

Thanks for visiting
