My Creative Monday for Magenta - Flower collage

I stamped the flower image in a very light pinkish color, left it to dry. 
I then just drew the image by hand with a black marker, added some yellow in the heart of the flower with a yellow acrylic marker. After fussycutting the flowers I adhered them to the colorful background. 
I stamped the word HELLO onto a leftover piece of the background and used it as a banner as shown.

My Creative Thursday for Magenta - Leaf Collage Postcard


Stamping these leaves in a stamping platform and using watercolor markers to ink them up (one coloir at a time) makes for colorful and very unpredictable leaves. 

I LOVE how this turned out. 

To achieve good results you have to work on a very good watercolor card.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - A scenery

 A scenery this time. 

I started on a colorful background that, when I saw it, I could picture this scenery. 
While stamping and coloring the sun, it just unfolded to this. Snowy, sunny, and even a blue sky, a few birds flying by.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - Journal Flower Collage

An art journal page made into a card: I LOVE doing that. 
These pages mostly end up being so playful that even if I tried I will end up with a different background. 
Using is as a base for a stamped image makes it a quick way of creating a card in a minute when all these backgrounds are ready to use.

Art Journaling with Birdies

 An art journal page from me today, a happy color one.

 I started by scribbling with Neocolor II crayons vertically, then added white acrylic paints with a brush to mute them and partially overlap the colors, scribbled in it with the same crayons. 

After letting it dry I stamped in the background and onto a separate white cardstock, fussycut the birds and butterflies, colored them and adhered them to the page. Only step left now was adding color to the images and some journaling words. 

See you next time!
